COURSE OVERVIEW

Recording Techniques

Level:
An understanding of the fundamentals of music technology and computer operating systems is desirable before taking this course.

Overview:
The course will help you to understand why achieving a good recording can not only greatly improve how your tracks sound, but save you time and effort when it comes to the mixing and mastering stages. Whilst a good mix can help a bad recording and good mastering can help a poor mix, your end result will never sound as good as a track that was simply well recorded in the first place. Mixing a good recording is far easier than trying to hammer a bad one into shape; everything sounds right from the beginning and so needs less EQ and Compression to get to “that sound”.

  • Have an awareness of the different types of microphones
