Recording Professor Creates Virtual Studio

For some teachers, the COVID-19 pandemic meant facilitating lectures and discussions via a Zoom virtual meeting. For others, the logistics of virtual teaching has proven to be a great deal more complicated. For Professor and M.F.A Director Bill Crabtree, of the Middle Tennessee State University Audio Production program, remote-teaching meant creating a multi-camera audio classroom within four of MTSU’s recording studio control rooms.

Crabtree designed a multi-iPhone camera, high-definition audio/video classroom experience within four of the six PhantomFocus-equipped control rooms on the MTSU campus.

“Most of what I teach is hands-on,” Crabtree said. “Our students have to learn how all the equipment in the room works, how to collaborate with others in the control room, and how to work with musicians during a recording session."
