Segues from MSR 2116.01 as the next step in in sound recording and mixing. We’ll working on advanced microphone technique, dynamic processing, producing, mixing, and mastering, starting start with hands-on A/B comparisons of microphone techniques, and capturing audio in diverse spaces around campus. The course will consider the merits of various formats, analog vs digital, vinyl vs CD vs streaming. Students will focus on their own projects throughout the course, as well as mixing pre-existing multitracks. Ultimately we’ll consider how you make your mixes translate out of the studio, in the paradoxical age of the laptop and earbud.
