Enrolment in this course is limited to Wilfrid Laurier Music students. This course blends foundational audio theory with contemporary recording technology in an applied, project-based setting. Students will engage in hands-on-training in the art and science of capturing sound with popular and cost-effective Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs). Fundamental techniques in engineering, microphone selection, signal processing and mixing will be presented. Focus will be placed on understanding acoustic environments, instrument-specific recording techniques, field recording and the performance aspects of quality recordings. Please be prepared to spend an additional $200 for the rental of professional audio recording gear.
