The Cape Audio January intake have been given their first AV assignment. They have to choose one of two 3 minute long video clips provided, either an action scene from the feature film ‘Hellboy 2′ or an equally exiting clip based on the ‘Halo’ computer game series.
For this particular assignment the students have access to professional sound sample libraries consisting of thousands of banks of sound effects designed to be used in audio post production work.

We recently received a shout out from one of our recent graduates Shaun Cloete, and decided to run a quick interview. Shaun graduated from the Cape Audio College at the end of 2010. And now 6 months later it is very interesting to see what he’s done so far with his qualification.
Richard : So tell us Shaun, what have you been up to since you graduated from Cape Audio College? And how did you get your first paid gig in sound?
Shaun : My first bit of paid sound work was from a company called Night Owls.

He was blown away with the final product and happily paid me my first earnings from sound. Read more »
The new ADAM AX range are an update of the original A series that proved very popular among home studio and project studio owners due to their accurate response and extended hi frequency range. The AX series comes in a variety of sizes starting with the 3 inch driver (A3X’s). Also available are the A5X (5 inch driver) A7X and A8X. Part of ADAMS main sales point is the Accelerating Ribbon Technology, or “ART” used in their tweeter design — a concept that was pioneered by Dr Oskar Heil, but which has been optimised by Adam’s own engineers, who have fine-tuned the geometry and materials. What is really interesting, though, is the basic operating principle: the ART ribbon membrane isn’t flat, like most ribbons, but corrugated, rather like concertina bellows. As audio is fed into the ribbon, the moving folds produce four times the air-loading of a flat diaphragm of the same frontal area, and up to 2.5 times the acoustic output — so you could think of it as a kind of pneumatic transformer!
