"... when you walk through the 'campus' and grasp the scale of this enormous undertaking - from any perspective, technological or otherwise - you cannot help but be impressed. What on the outside looks like a very expensive resort, rapidly reveals itself to be exponentially more valuable, as you discover the seemingly endless number of control and recording rooms, edit suites, post production and mix rooms, all decked out with the 'latest and greatest hitech equipment, nestling relatively inconspicuously under the shade of the very lo-tech gum trees.

Commenting on the new SAE World Headquarters and International School, Phil Dudderidge (Chairman of Focusrite und President of the APRS) comments: "This is simply an outstanding campus, dedicated to the recording arts. If the expression "world class" has any meaning, this exemplifies it. I have seen no other educational facility anywhere in the world which comes close.
