Audio Prod 1: Fundamentals

Fall 2022

Taught By: Geoffrey Countryman

Section: A

CRN: 12853

Credits: 2

It is beneficial for musicians to have at least a basic understanding of electronics and recording in order to take full advantage of new technology. Students will learn the basic fundamentals of various electronic devices commonly found in today’s recording studios. In the first eight weeks, we will explore cables, microphones, mixing consoles, recording devices, recording media, outboard processing (equalizers, compressors, reverb, etc.), and learn how to connect everything for optimal performance. After this preliminary portion of the class, actual recording sessions and live performances will take place where students will have the opportunity to get real hands-on experience with studio setups, microphone selection and placement, mixing, tracking, and live sound reinforcement. Each student will be required to complete a minimum of three recording sessions and three live performances. This course may be used to satisfy the 21st Century Proficiencies (Technology) requirement for Bachelors of Music students.
