Interested in recording your music but don’t know how? Are you curious to learn about how to use software available on most computers to record music? Or, have you experimented with recording you or your friends’ music already, but want to learn how to make your recordings sound better? This is the course for you. In this week long workshop you’ll learn from a seasoned professional recording engineer in a relaxed environment who will teach you the basics of recording, then let you try your own hand at recording your music. Topics to be covered in the workshop include: microphones and microphone placement; recording basics and getting a proper level; the function and uses of mixing; the basics of equalization and compression; getting that “perfect” guitar or drum sound; the final mastering process.
