OUR PART # LC3BASE-PLUS
Lab-Based Music Education
The LC3 music lab system effectively allows an instructor ubiquitous control over classes expandable to as many as 48 students. Using a system of headphones/mics, it's as if each student is isolated in their own virtual practice room, ideal for private practice or one-on-one instruction with a teacher. Any instrument with a stereo headphone output can be taught using the LC3 including Yamaha keyboards, digital pianos, Silent Series brass and string instruments, or electronic percussion.
It's All In One Box
The LC3 BASE comes with everything needed (except musical instruments, stands, and benches to be added) for 8 students and 1 teacher (9 stations). That's all the headsets, cabling, I/O boxes, Hub and Control Unit to get the lab up and running fast. The LC3 expansion comes with everything needed to add 8 more students to the LC3 Base (max 48 students).
Music Lab Software You Can Use
The LC3 Educator Utilities CD-ROM comes packed with practical tools for the music classroom.
The gold standard in music notation software. When connected to a USB or MIDI keyboard, a music instructor can play notes into Finale Notepad as a visual aid, or Finale Notepad can play notes directly to the keyboard as a aural example. A Mac or PC can connect to a large class monitor or projector to have music seen and heard by the entire class.
Standard Piano Repertoire
The Finale Notepad files are well-known piano classics. Simply open the desired file in Finale Notepad and press PLAY(spacebar) to start and stop playback of the piece. Students can follow the cursor, watch notes and listen to Finale Notepad play the instructor's connected USB or MIDI keyboard as an aural and visual example of what certain pieces are supposed to sound like.
Digital Music Notebook
DMN is essentially a digital sheet music viewer for downloading, playing, and printing music straight off the Internet. Literally thousands of titles are available. Files including lessons, guitar tablature, karaoke lyric files and more are there for your perusal and normally offered as a pay-per-song service. But as an LC3 lab owner you are given a coupon code for TWO free titles of your choice. With a projector or large LCD, use DMN as a visual aid for reviewing sheet music. Or even print a title for a student in your class.
NOTE: This does not come with instruments, stands, or benches. This expansion pack only gives you the ability to connect 8 more instruments to the Music Lab. You must have the LC3BASE Music Lab in order to use this expansion pack.
