There is an endless amount of information about the subject of recording. This course is based on our experience of recording music for the last 15 years, and running a professional recording studio since 1995.
Our approach is hands on without unnecessary theory. Information that did not prove itself as practical during our last couple of years of work will not be included.
The course aims to get the student up to speed and into action asap. If you would like to start recording, and don't know where to start - this is for you.
When you finish the course you will be able to record and master music on your own. You will know what equipment you need, and which free software alternatives exist. The course is delivered in a casual language, without unnecessary technical jargon (a few technical terms are unavoidable, but they will be explained in a simple straight forward way).
Subjects include: acoustics, soundproofing, ergonomics, microphone types and techniques, recording specific instruments, recording systems, midi, recording session, effects, mixing session, mastering - theory and practice.
The course is done at the studio in groups of up to 5 people.
