Shure Incorporated announced today that a team from Middle Tennessee State University is this year's Grand Prize Winner of the eighth annual “Fantastic Scholastic Recording Competition.” The three-student team of Taylor Bray, Jeff Braun, and Grant Hartford, with faculty advisor Associate Professor Michael Fleming, won this year’s contest with an original composition by aspiring singer-songwriter Rebecca Roubion entitled “Falliday.”
Each of the 10 student teams worked on a recording project that consisted of tracking and mixing a performance, exclusively using a “microphone locker” provided by Shure for the competition. Teams submitted an unmastered stereo mix for review by a panel of industry professionals who were invited by Shure to judge the competition.
As the winning school, MTSU takes ownership of a selection of Shure KSM recording microphones, which consists of one KSM313 ribbon microphone, two KSM44A, one KSM42/SG, two KSM32/SL, one KSM141/SL stereo mic pair with A27M stereo mic stand adapter, two SM27-LC, two BETA 181/S, two RPM181/O, and six SRH840 Professional Monitoring Headphones. The entire prize package is valued at more than $11,000. In addition, each member of the winning team will receive a KSM42/SG, valued at $999 MSRP.
