While at one point composers had no choice but to write, record, and arrange their works in multi-million dollar studio facilities, advances in recording technology have made it possible for the bulk of that work to take place in a compact home studio environment. Those capabilities are empowering, and knowing how to maximize the potential of the tools you have at your disposal enables you to channel your inspiration and capture your musical ideas.
You’ll study core concepts such as digital signal processing and digital audio recording as you use industry-standard software such as Pro Tools and Logic to record your course assignments. You’ll also learn about audio workstation hardware and software, mastering the techniques and procedures that are required to maximize the use of this gear. Finally, by studying audio file management and documentation, you’ll ensure the organization of your audio files and recording sessions enables the recording process to run as smoothly as possible.
