In all music technology, a thorough understanding of sound and recording is essential. This course explores the basic mechanisms of converting sound to electrical signals, and their storage in digital recording. It also begins to develop the basic practical skills and knowledge required of a music sound recording engineer and how to manage a recording session. The self paced course is aimed at students studying recording studio engineering using a large format mixing console such as the Audient ASP8024. It takes the student through the basics of inputting routing, recording and monitoring a signal as well as application of effects and processing a signal using a hardware patchbay. In addition to this, we discuss the live room environment and how to manage a recording session.
The course contains 15 short videos discussing each section of the mixing console in detail plus 15 professionally presented Power Point presentations.
