MUSC 248 Sound Design and Recording

Music producers have at their disposal a set of powerful tools that enable them to create, shape, and refine their sounds in their home studios.  In this course, we will use Ableton Live for a hands-on approach to recording and sound design.  We will address topics such as microphone techniques, synthesis, and sampling, and we will create and shape pads, basses, and drums by using virtual instruments and third-­party plugins. Students will learn the preliminary mixing techniques and related important skill sets required by today's music industry.
