Beginning to end. You will be introduced to Protools, microphone basics, signal path etc. Students will need to work with musicians (and or themselves) and agree on a cover song to record. We will also be listening to some previously recorded sessions and breaking down the anatomy of a produced, recorded song. We will record basics for the song that class comes up with. May includes drums, bass, guitars, keys. I will demonstrate and cover the micing techniques for each instrument and record the performances. More to be covered:
- Overdubing sessions including recording techniques for both auxiliary instruments and vocals.
