KRK Systems was founded in 1986, by Keith Klawitter, an engineer with credits on such films as Brainstorm and The Doors. Keith was frustrated by the fact he couldn’t find a monitor that gave him clarity and accuracy, so he began building his own. Other engineers and producers began to take notice of Keith’s high-end studio monitors, a groundswell began and a company was born. Recently, KRK dropped off 5 sets of speakers for evaluation in the Conservatory’s 8 recording studios and critical listening classes.
“Our ongoing relationships with manufacturers are a big part of why the program here at the Conservatory has a ‘real world’ feel and intent,” says Administrator Kirt Hamm. “KRK is just one of our partners who realizes the value in exposing up and coming audio professionals to the best products in the industry”. The Conservatory has solid relationships with such companies as Sennheiser, Digidesign, Fender, Audio Technica, Royer, TC Electronic, Ruper Neve Designs and many more.
