electronics and recording in order to take full advantage of new technology. Students learn the fundamentals of various electronic devices commonly found in today’s recording studios. For the first eight weeks, students explore cables, microphones, mixing consoles, recording devices, recording media, and outboard processing (equalizers, compressors, reverb, etc.) and learn how to connect equipment for optimal performance. After this preliminary portion, actual recording sessions and live performances take place, during which students get hands-on experience with studio setups, microphone selection and placement, mixing, tracking, and live sound reinforcement. Each student is required to complete a minimum of three recording sessions and three live performances. 2 credits
