Seniors Michael Sokol, a TVR/Audio Production major, and Conrad Capalbo, a TVR/Audio Production and Bus. Administration/Finance major, have been named the 2010 award recipients of the Jon Hilton/Hiltronex Sound Pro Tools Award.
The recipients will receive professional audio software -- an entry-level Pro Tools LE MBox 2 system with current and up-gradable software -- and a short review of Pro Tools operation to help the students get up and running. The students were judged based on their demonstration of technical and aesthetic qualities that reflect professional potential based upon standards currently accepted in the audio production profession.
