Our Sound Engineering course is for learners who want to master the recording side of sound engineering in their home studio setup, and get as close to master-quality results with what equipment they have available. The entire Sound Engineering course takes place in our custom Neve 8078 control room and specially built live area, undoubtedly one of the best non-orchestral commercial recording studios in the country. Jam-packed with sound engineering tips and recording techniques shared with you by the very same engineers who work in the studio daily on projects including Mark Ronson, Katy B, Noel Gallagher, Burial, Alice Gold, Tinchy Stryder and Jamie Woon to name but a few. The last three days are actual recording sessions with a view to get the master drums down with guides for everything else in session one, the next day, overdubs covering all of the other instruments plus instruments not in the band but in our course, followed by vocals and finishing up on your final day of recording. Total Sound Engineering course cost is £499.
