And we have a winner! Over the past 3 months, CapeAudioForum.com (Our own technical forum) has been running a competition giving away an amazing microphone bundle from MXL microphones. This amazing prize was handed over to the student that showed the most active interest in the forum and was judged by quality of posts as well as involvement with other conversations. The most active member during this period was none other than Oliver Stutz, a first year student currently studying a 3 year Diploma here at the Cape Audio College. It was great to see some serious dedication as Oli S (As he’s known on the forum) posted some of the best content our forum has seen in a long time. Oli got involved with other students aswering questions and contributing to technical conversations involving the art of audio engineering.
Forums are an integral part of study and student development all over the world. Top universities and institutions rely on forums to help students understand theory and meet new like minded people. A first for South African Audio colleges and a staple world wide, this modern and efficient online learning system really helps as students are able to ask seasoned professionals technical questions regarding their craft. Our forum has seen contributions from the likes of Mike Wabro, who is a post production engineer at Pinewood studios in London, as well as Pro Tools expert and distributor Maldwyn Greenwood, who officially moderates the forums Pro Tools sections. A great advantage for any learning engineer.
The prize its self needs no introduction as the MXL microphone review from a few months ago has been a very popular feature on this blog. The Cr24 microphone set contains a Cr24 large diaphragm condensor microphone, and a small diaphragm condensor mic, complete with shock mounts and presented in a stylish metal carry case to keep things safe. The Cr24 microphone set was kindly provided by S.E.G.M.A, distributors for AVID hardware and software as well as MXL microphones, SADiE, Palmer, Mogami, Slate, Flux, LD systems and Prismsound. Oli S and the Cape Audio College would like to thank S.E.G.M.A for such a fantastic prize and their contribution to our forum.
