Audio Engineering 1

Classes start with basic acoustic principles, microphone theory, use and placement. Then you’ll study consoles, patch bays and signal flow, resulting in an understanding of these elements and the ability to apply that knowledge. Moving ahead you’ll learn how to confidently operate multi-track digital audio workstations, hard disk recorders and how to get proper signal levels to each. Once you’re ready to record you’ll cover equalization, compression & gating as well as the pros and cons of recording with and without these processors. Finally when your material is recorded you learn the standard tricks of the trade in mixing and sweetening your tracks.
