The Fundamental Audio Engineering Course
This course is designed to teach students the essential and primary factors necessary for a firm grounding in audio engineering. Knowledge gained is applicable to all fields where audio is required, such as live sound and P.A. operation, recording studios, theatre sound, radio, film and television. Students will learn the basics of acoustics and electronics, sound propagation, isolation and insulation, microphones, speakers, leads, analogue and digital recording machines and techniques, control room and studio layout, design, functionality and procedure, the use of outboard and FX equipment (limiters, compressors, equalisation, delays, reverbs, flanges) and how to use Protools - the industry standard - recording mixing and editing, plus it's myriad of plug-ins. Students will take charge of the studio to record a variety of instruments and eventually the whole band. Plenty of hands on time and practical sessions are allowed for in this course. It's so down to earth, we even teach you how to properly wire and solder leads for your own running repairs. All classes are held in the studio and control room, so class sizes are limited. Maximum 5 students per class. Defiantly for the serious, committed and dedicated student.
