What did they need?
A cutting-edge control surface that would allow students to develop their professional skills and portfolio.

How did we help?
We specced, supplied and installed an Avid Pro Tools | S6, the world’s leading control surface (they went for a 16 fader S6 M40 and a Pro Tools HD Native system, for the record).

What were the benefits?

  • Students are now working on industry standard kit, and are developing the skills required of a modern professional.
  • Students can take on more advanced projects, such as mixing and editing a 65 piece symphony orchestral recording from Abbey Road’s Studio Two.
  • The institute can offer facilities similar to that of the studios themselves.

“Jigsaw24 have been very supportive throughout the entire experience, from pre-sales to after installation. They have continued to help with implementing our Avid setup, and have even invited our students to training sessions and networking events.”

Luca Barassi, Managing Director, Abbey Road Institute.
