You will study the usage of microphones and other hardware in various contexts as well as DAW functionality using industry standard software such as Pro Tools and Ableton Live.

By conducting your own recording sessions under supervision from your lecturers, you will explore practical audio editing skills that are used for both TV & Film and Game design, as well as evolving your ability to create simple song arrangements and productions within a music context and mixing in various formats.

Throughout your course, you’ll build on your knowledge on the subject of Sound for Live Events where you’ll have access to various live performance spaces further developing your critical listening skills and using a range of analogue and digital mixing desks, PA systems and microphone arrays.

During the course you will develop an understanding of the professional skills, work habits, and attitudes expected by the Music and Sound Production industry. This will include client interaction, working in teams, delivering high quality work to tight deadlines and decision making.

You’ll also be encouraged to work with students from other disciplines including Music, Music Business and Film & TV collaborating on projects that will introduce you to working in real-life situations.

By enrolling in an approved Avid Learning centre, opportunities exist to complement your learning by studying optional industry led qualifications such as Pro Tools 101 / 110.

Units include:

  • Sound Engineering and Production
  • Live Sound
  • Synthesis & Sampling
  • MIDI Sequencing
  • Sound Design
  • Music Remixing
  • Recording Studio Techniques
  • Digital Media

That sounds incredibly complete and comprehensive. Hopefully it will lead to a position if that’s what you’re looking for. I like that they included an introduction to what will be expected of you. That’s one thing that was missing from my course in graphic arts. Preparation for real-world experiences. I did learn that on my own though

If you have any questions about Pro Tools, lay it on me. I’m not an advanced user, but I am quite proficient and use it daily

I recently downloaded cakewalk but ironically the audio wasn’t coming through

I’ve never heard of that one. Have you ever tried Reaper? It is open source, so it’s cheap. I think it’s only $60 for the full-blown version

That’s good to know. I just bought a new iMac, and was considering switching to Reaper rather than pay for Pro Tools, which has gotten quite expensive. I am also considering Studio One by PreSonus. My friend uses it, and it’s very intuitive

It’s around $500 Canadian for the full version, about a hundred and thirty for the artist version
