Buena Park, CA – December 2007… While many colleges and universities have curriculums that include electronic music production and recording, precious few are as specialized or comprehensive as Tempe, Arizona‘s Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences (CRAS). Recognized throughout North America as one of the leading schools for audio recording, engineering, and production, CRAS offers its students hands-on training with instructors who are recognized throughout the music and sound industry for their expertise and accomplishments, along with the most sophisticated, up-to-date, hardware and software the industry has to offer. With so much equipment needing to be interconnected, cables and adapters play an integral role in the Conservatory‘s day to day routine, and the cables and adapters of choice are those from Hosa Technology.
With over 1,400 SKU‘s (stock keeping units) in the company‘s inventory, Hosa‘s many products have come to be part of the students‘ everyday life. In the same manner that most colleges and universities have bookstores to accommodate their student body‘s requirements for textbooks and supplies, Hosa products are the cables and adapters of choice at CRAS. With a huge inventory, first-rate build quality, and highly competitive pricing, Hosa products are found everywhere on campus.
Recently, the school started a laptop computer program, whereby newly enrolled students receive an Apple MacBook computer, a Sennheiser dynamic microphone and headphones, an M-Audio Fast Track Pro audio/MIDI interface, M-Powered Pro Tools Academic software, and Logic Studio software. As one would expect, this equipment needs to be interconnected–and the product line of choice is… Hosa.
According to Kevin Becka, Associate Director of Education/Audio Recording and Production at the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences, “For this sort of program to succeed, our students need easy, affordable access to the necessary cables and adapters to connect the equipment. Hence it only makes sense to make Hosa‘s large inventory readily available. We also recently purchased two new Digidesign C|24 mixing consoles. Here again, we required a number of interconnect solutions in order to integrate these new consoles with our other equipment and we accomplished this through Hosa.”
Hosa Technology has a tremendous respect for the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences, and the company considers it an honor to be associated with the school, as was summarized by Jonathan Pusey, the company‘s National Marketing Manager. “Hosa Technology takes great pride in its association with the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences,” said Pusey. “As a leader in the education of future generations of audio professionals, your efforts represent a significant step toward ensuring the health of the music and sound industry. The skills and disciplines you impart on your students helps foster tomorrow‘s audio innovators. All of us at Hosa applaud your efforts and look forward to a long-standing, productive relationship with your organization.”
Kirt Hamm, the Conservatory‘s Administrator, was equally enthusiastic. “We‘re excited to add Hosa to our roster of educational partners. We‘ve had a great ongoing relationship with our local rep, Fred Allard of AMP Sales, and we like the idea of a one-stop shop for all our cable needs.”
