The Recording Engineering and Studio Techniques Program

5 Courses   328 hours

Microphone DiagramThe Recording Engineering and Studio Techniques Program provides training in the concepts and skills of professional multi-track studio recording and mixing. Using a carefully crafted curriculum of lecture and hands-on training, this program establishes a solid foundation by teaching the scientific principles and concepts associated with sound and audio recording, and then applying these principles with hands-on activities in world class professional recording studios. The result is a thoroughly trained and exceptionally competent recording engineer, qualified to work in any professional studio, and capable of performing at the highest standards of the recording industry.

As a Recording Engineering student, you will begin by gaining an understanding of the fundamental physics of sound, including harmonic series, frequency response, dynamic range, phase characteristics, hearing contours and basic measurements; and progress though the conversion of sound into electronic signals through the use of microphones. You will learn to understand all of the various types of microphones, their construction, principles of operation, and sonic characteristics, and apply the secrets of microphone selection and technique to capturing the most accurate and pleasing sounds. Through both lecture and hands-on application you will master the operation of signal processors, such as reverbs, harmonizers, compressors, limiters, equalizers, gates and all of the other devices which have become standard tools of the recording engineer. You will come to know the many types and configurations of professional recording consoles, understand the principles of signal flow and learn the principles and practice of mix automation. You will receive intense and extensive hands-on training some of the finest large-format consoles found in the industry, including the split-configuration 32-channel API 2488, the 56-channel SSL 4048, and the 60-channel Neve VR analog consoles; and the 32-fader ProControl and 48-fader, dual operator ICON digital consoles.
