This course introduces students to the aesthetic considerations and functional operation of equipment for multitrack mixdown of stereo masters. Topics include: common control room procedures and protocol; console and control room signal flow, control logic, and patching; balance; use of outboard signal processors; and documentation. Weekly out-of-class studio lab time consists of mixing prerecorded multitrack material. Audio ear training is also required outside of class time.
Special update for fall 2020 only: MP-241 does not have to be taken concurrently with MP-212.
