This course continues to explore the fundamentals of sound as it applies to music, mixing, and advanced digital production techniques. This second part of the series will continue in learning Pro Tools by diving deeper into digital signal processes, applying advanced mixing production workflows, and using effects to treat the tonal and transient components of instrumentation constructively.
Projects will consist of advanced multitrack mixing productions, song analysis, and critical listening exercises. Weekly multitrack mixes and exercises will be assigned using the foundational principles of mixing and editing.
This course is taught using Canvas for online lectures and demonstrations, Pro Tools for mixing, and listening exercises using various streaming platforms. By the end of the course, students will have an advanced understanding of mix organization, editing techniques, effectively applying effects to instrumentation, and a critical ear for mixing music and sound reproduction.
Accepts students who completed the prerequisite course, Audio Fundamentals and Mixing Techniques I or equivalent coursework or prior experience will be considered. Please email the faculty with a brief description of related experience and/or education.
