On Thursday, Sept. 7, the Solid State Logic Truck made a stop on campus, and parked near the library to provide a chance for students to check out the truck and the equipment. The truck has two demo systems as well as an array of the highest broadcasting technology. It is described as “a professional, comfortable listening environment” on the Solid State Logic website.

Thanks to Sonic Arts Associate Professor Eric Sample, who helped coordinate the event, Champlain students were able to board the truck and learn about the technology and the recording capabilities of Solid State Logic. Though only five people may enter the truck at a time, it boasts computers outside in order to provide entertainment and education to a larger group at a time. This was a perfect opportunity for Broadcasting students, and others, to experience this state of the art technology and to learn more about the process of recording in a unique setting.
