Midi & Tech Lab

The Midi Tech Lab is perfect for students focusing on writing and production, songwriting, and film scoring with hands-on access to professional music technology equipment. While all labs are unique and consist of different equipment based on the school and teacher, most Midi Tech Labs consists of digital audio/MIDI workstations for each of the students and a teaching workstation for the Instructor.

Classrooms may have:

  • Computers equipped with professional DAWs (Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Logic, Reason, etc.),
  • Software instruments and plug-ins
  • MIDI controllers
  • Audio Interface
  • And more…

All of the Korg Lab Solutions are designed around the GEC5 Group Education Controller group audio controller, a cost-effective stereo digital audio routing system. Suitable for any teaching level and any combination of electronic instruments, (keyboards, guitars, sound modules, computer soundcards, etc.) the GEC5 allows teachers to interact with as many as 32 individual student stations with one Teacher Unit.

The GEC5 features three chief modes of operation; Lecture, Practice and Group. In Lecture Mode, students hear the teacher's microphone and instrument as well as their own instruments. In Practice Mode, students hear only his or her own instrument and the teacher has the option of eavesdropping or initiating two-way communication. In Group Mode, students can listen to the instruments and microphones of other group members.
