In addition to IPR’s studio facilities, the campus includes multimedia computer labs. Each lab is equipped with a variety of workstations for students to explore music production and sequencing, audio editing and mixing, video, graphic design and web and multimedia production. Students can access more than 100 Mac- and PC-based workstations featuring Avid’s Pro Tools® and Media Composer systems, Apple’s Logic Pro® and Final Cut Studio®, Ableton Live™ and the entire range of Adobe® Creative Suite software including Premiere, Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects.
Outsiders may overlook the microphone, but our students know it’s a vital piece of equipment that can often make the difference between a mere piece of work and a masterpiece. IPR’s microphone collection includes more than 100 industry-standard and vintage pieces for our students to explore and learn on.
Studios at IPR are available to students 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Here, students take the helm outside of class, learning the latest in audio/video production, design and business technologies. IPR’s studios are a place for students to work in real time with real clients.
