In lesson one, you'll have the opportunity to sit with your mentor in a professional recording studio and begin learning the basic concepts you'll be building upon in the lessons to come. By the end of lesson one, you will have successfully routed an audio signal through the recording console, into Pro Tools, and back again!
Lesson two will have you continuing to route audio through the recording console and into Pro Tools and begin to build your understanding of digital audio. You will cover a number of topics directly related to how D.A.W.'s (Digital Audio Workstations) handle audio/video sessions and the options included within Pro Tools.
Lesson three focuses predominantly on microphones and their functionality.
Throughout lessons one, two, and three, you've been able to get audio through the recording console, and now, it's time to learn how the console actually functions. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to study different consoles manufacturers, makes, and models.
The patch bay is an essential part of any sound entity. In lesson four, you'll be learning how it operates, connecting the console to the outboard gear.
Lesson six will arguably be the most hands-on lesson of the program. By the end of lesson six, you'll have set up and experimented with different microphone positions and techniques.
Whereas in previous lessons, you've been using Pro Tools to route audio back to the recording console, you'll now begin to utilize Pro Tools for a number of purposes. You'll learn about Pro Tools itself, fast keys, and how to navigate around the software with general ease.
In lesson eight, you'll learn and experiment with the effects within Pro Tools or the plug-ins. These include reverb, delay, compression, and many, many more.
Equalization (E.Q.) is a powerful tool for any recording engineer or producer. Lesson nine will help you understand its purpose and functionality, in addition to the several types of equalizers available.
Lesson ten encompasses compression, limiting, de-essers, and several other available tools. By the end of lesson ten, you should have a firm grasp of how these tools can be implemented and utilized.
Lesson eleven will focus on both reverbs and delays in a manner designed to help you not only understand how and when to utilize them but to improve your quality of work!
Lesson twelve will focus on the different types of monitoring and speakers that can be utilized both in the studio and live. You will also be introduced to the several different types of amplifiers that power the equipment you've been using.
Lesson thirteen provides an introduction to the digital side of music production in the form of the musical instrument digital interface or MIDI.
Anything you feel you need to review or cover once more can and will be done to ensure that you walk away from the program with a truly solid and functional understanding of what you've learned!
