The future of live audio and music recording will require continually adapting to innovation and technology. Key to learning the new technology is understanding acoustics and the older tape-based recording and live sound technologies that the newer software developments are based upon. This course will give you the ability to produce music in a home studio environment using available and affordable technology, including your own tablet or laptop. Instructor Clarence Deis has 39 years experience working in audio, with an emphasis on live music recording. The course will be very hands on and interactive.
