COURSE BACKGROUND

Sound Engineering (N4-N6) is aimed at giving you the technical, theoretical and practical knowledge required in studio work. This qualification will qualify you to be employed within the music industry as a sound technician, studio engineer or music producer.
You will be able to enter the audio / music business as an effective professional in a number of roles on either the technical or business management sides of the music and broadcast industries: recording engineer, post production engineer, live sound engineer, studio manager, music business manager, audio film editor, or record company professional.

The ability to transform literature to a digitally recorded piece is an ability that not many of us can perform. With nearly everything around us being digitally enhanced, it is no surprise that Digital Media Production is in demand. This programme will teach you to take a brief from a corporate or business partner and transform this into a digitally enhanced video footage, which you can use as a corporate image or as a proposal to sell your business to the public either via television or multimedia.

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Record a full band (any kind of music) onto a professional, industry standard, Digital Audio Workstation.
  • Make basic decisions in terms of microphone choice and placement, audio editing and processing.
  • Use industry standard DAW’s to perform advanced tasks such as processing and mixing audio.
  • Perform basic MIDI programming demonstrating an understanding of musical arrangement.
  • Work on multiple projects towards a deadline and manage their own time and resources.
