Live from Point Blank: Recording Vocal w/ Claudia Fontaine (Pink Floyd, The Beatmasters)

At our brand new second London facility, we’ve provided our students with everything they need to craft great records. With two consoles – an SSL Duality and an Audient 8024 – our Sound Engineering students get to learn on world-class equipment. As part of their BA Hon Diploma, students learn to record and produce with professional session musicians playing drums, guitars and singing, before putting it all together in their final project. We popped in to a recent Sound Engineering class to see the students in action, recording vocal with Claudia Fontaine and guided by their instructor Anthony Chapman (Klaxons, Franz Ferdinand). Claudia has featured as a backing singer alongside some of music’s biggest stars including Pink Floyd, The Jam, Neneh Cherry, and was the lead vocalist on The Beatmasters’ hit single “Warm Love”. Watch the session above and if you want to come and see the school for yourself, book a tour of our second facility here.

If you want to learn more recording and mixing techniques, come and see our amazing new London facility, our Diploma courses teach you everything you need to know to take your music to the next level, on the latest industry-standard equipment. Our 48-channel SSL Duality Delta is the centre piece of our new facility, with a whole room dedicated to the latest Pioneer DJ equipment and another studio full of Push 2s! Plus, there’s practice rooms with Roland TR-8s, NI Maschine and more for when you’re not in class but need to work on your tracks.
