Research in Sound Design

Description of Course:

This class is a introduction to the new facilities in Sound that are just coming online for the new IATC. Audio Technology is a multifaceted discipline that involves understanding of many aspects of transducers and Electronics. In this class we will go element by element through the many parts and interrelationships of what makes a good recording in many different contexts. Microphones, Speakers, Mixers, Compressors/Limiters, Reverb and other signal processing techniques are all part of the puzzle of modern audio production. By systematically assessing the workflow associated with each element of the recording process the engaged student will come away with a much broader understanding of the techniques of modern recording science and art.
