Melbourne Campus - Building Update
In Melbourne, the Australian Institute of Music (AIM) staff and students are lucky enough to inhabit the former Melbourne Wool Exchange. This beautiful building is heritage listed, and to this end you may have noticed scaffolding which has recently been erected over the King Street-facing side of the site. These facade works are required to ensure the upper sections of the building do not start to crumble and pose risks to students, staff and passers-by … and also means our campus will stay looking beautiful!
The works are expected to be completed in 1-2 months. Please be mindful when entering or exiting the building, and when walking the perimeter - unexpected obstacles or construction workers may be in your way from time to time.
Melbourne Campus - Studios Upgrade
Whilst the outside repairs, the inside upgrades …. AIM Melbourne’s Composition & Music Production Department is currently receiving an upgrade to its facilities. All studio and media lab computers will be upgraded to Pro Tools 12. Our analog and digital control rooms will receive the latest updates of Spectrasonics Omnisphere and iZotope Ozone along with NI Komplete Ultimate. All production suites and control rooms will now be fitted out with Waves Gold, Slate Digital and the East West Composer Cloud packages. Select rooms will receive additional mixing and mastering bundles as well as Melodyne.
Both control rooms will also be receiving an upgrade to the computers with the current Mac Minis being replaced by Mac Pros.
