Audio Recording II Week 2

The second week of this course concentrates on approaching the mix. My philosophy is that you should begin approaching the mix during preproduction. That is, you should begin to shape the sound you want as soon as you begin talking with your talent. Having vision is the first step to a good mix. As you learn more about the equipment the talent uses and the style they play in, you should start to form opinions about the overall sonic character you are going for, which in turn will inform your opinion on what mic to use and how to use it.

Read the lecture to the right and get ready for the upcoming quiz. You should also be working on preproduction for your recording projects this quarter.
