Advanced Hybrid Recording Methods and Strategies
This course explores the hybrid nature of modern recording techniques and strategies. The curriculum thoroughly studies the simultaneous integration of advanced large format consoles, cutting-edge digital audio workstation capabilities as well as advanced, creative acoustic recording methods. This advanced level course leverages the students’ previous experience in traditional studios and home-based studios to delve deeper into the topics that are normally not covered in an engineering curriculum. The traditional console recording paradigm will be expanded by seamlessly merging it with powerful digital audio workstation signal processing, plug-ins, cutting edge signal processing, customized signal flow architectures and the ongoing development of alternative acoustic soundscapes. Most importantly, the course aims to innovate and streamline the technological aspects of the recording process as a means to ultimately facilitate the creative endeavor of capturing music and emotion through sound. Considerable attention will be given to the mindful integration of the musical creative process in support of maximizing the emotional impact of the music production.
