Success Stories from Students Near Birmingham
Learn all the professional recording equipment in your mentors’ studio.
“My first official session with my mentor in the Recording Connection basically covered all the equipment, as well as the equipments primary purposes inside of the studio. The first piece of equipment that was pointed out to me was the mixing desk. The mixing desk, being the main analog "input" unit within the studio that predetermines most of the equipments sends and returns. We went into a lot of detail in regards to each piece of equipment. Another very valuable piece of information that I was given is that, in modern day recording, having as many recording options as possible is and will be the most successful means of recording any band or performer. Because we have more recording options in this day and age than we used to, it allows us to get the best audio recording possible. Lastly, I was taken into the performance room where the bands and performers record and was shown several different techniques with different mics, including a mic called an 'AKG Perception. The one that stood out to me the most is the "X and Y" method in which you place 2 microphones at different angles to pick up on the best sounds possible. Lastly, I learned about sound waves and how an impact on the shape was determined by the way they sounded whether sharp or smooth. I learned a lot from this lesson and I have a much better understanding of the actual recording equipment than I had before.

Learn more than just the average recording engineer while working with your personal mentor provided through the Recording Connection.
"Today was my first day in the studio with my mentors. First, we went over the lesson the Recording Connection had assigned me, which was about waveforms, amplitude, and velocity. Along with this, my mentors recorded a voice-over for a commercial with a local furniture store, in which during all of this, I was able to sit in on. Next, they taught me a few more things off topic with the console, mastering songs, and the basics to microphones. Everything is golden in the Recording Connection. My mentors are GREAT people to be around, as well as work with. They are always trying to help me, even when I was interviewing with them when I first joined the program. I love the company my mentors are with, because it isn't just about recording songs. They also record commercial spots, along with songs, which allows me to learn about broadcasting as well."

"Today my mentor gave me an introduction into consoles. I came into my mentors’ studio expecting to just go over my reading and leave. However, not only was I not done, but I actually got to track drums for my mentor for the previous session with a jazz guitarist. I was able to set the levels, mic trem, and pretty much recorded the tracks. My mentor told me that it sounded really good and that this was a super confidence booster. I couldn’t help but want to do more!! It was so awesome actually getting to control everything in the control room by myself."
