AUDIO ENGINEERING

The audio engineering course, is aimed at the students who wants to learn how to record, mix and master their tracks professionally.

About the Course

Students will first learn about the different types of microphones, how a typical studio is put together and how everything is connected, as well as getting familiar with the studio hardware used in the CSS recording studios.

Through the combination of theory and practice, students will learn and experiment on the various microphone recording techniques.

Then the learning will progress by teaching the use of equalization, dynamics and effects, before embarking into exploring mixing and mastering techniques.

Finally, students will combine the knowledge that was gained from the course to record, edit, mix and master their final project, to successfully complete the course.
