During the course, advanced mixing and mastering techniques will be taught. These techniques will be applied to several recordings in different popular musical styles such as rock, hip-hop, EDM, folk, film music and jazz as part of the lecture in class. Students will learn specific mixing techniques and concepts that are inherent to these genres and will be able to apply them on their own projects. Throughout the course, mixes done by contemporary mixing engineers like Jake Jackson (Film music), Chris Lord-Alge (Rock), Manny Marroquin (RnB, Hip-Hop), Tchad Blake (Folk), Ariel Borujow (EDM), Dave Darlington (Jazz) will be analyzed. In addition to audio analysis, various in-depth interviews with mixing and mastering engineers and producers will be read and unique techniques developed by these engineers will be discussed. Writing short assignments weekly, as well as completing mixing/mastering assignments will be the basis of evaluation. Students will need to mix/master two projects during the course, one for the midterm and one for the final. Having taken Studio Topics: Audio Mixing & Mastering or having experience, knowledge of basic elements of mixing such as compression, equalization, reverberation, and delay is prerequisite for this course. This upper-level course is restricted to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
