This course focuses on developing critical listening skills, with particular emphasis on engineering analysis within the context of the popular music mix. Topics include: psychoacoustics of the critical listening environment; engineering techniques such as balance, panning, EQ, reverb, compression, delay and time-based effects; instrument identification; and stylistic comparisons of engineering and mix techniques. In-class listening analysis and concepts are reinforced through out-of-class critical listening assignments. An out-of-class audio ear training component is also a part of the course.
