San Antonio Recording Connection Reviews


Learn how to set up and run an entire recording session.

“Tuesday's lesson with my mentor was all about microphone design. We went over questions I had regarding phantom power, as well as different types of mics such as a condensers, dynamics, and ribbon mics. Characteristics of each and what they're best used for including how to use them to their full potential with placement techniques and choice of microphones being used. I got to sit down with my mentor showing me through some steps to be prepared for a client by setting up microphones, plugging them in the patch bay and connect them to the right inputs into the console and Pro Tools. I also helped with sound-checking the head phone mixers in the studio. In the session, I watched my mentor record two young ladies sing "The Star Spangled Banner" who are auditioning to sing in the opening of a San Antonio Spurs game. They both had very beautiful voices and I was glad to be watching and listening to the whole process."

“The day I have been waiting for so long was finally hear; the first day in the Recording Connection with my mentor. Last week I started reading the Recording Connection books several times, finding myself in trouble, because I realized there’s so much information I didn’t know and understand yet. However, when I went in for my first session with my mentor he helped me comprehend the subjects I had been reading by using live examples so that I can get familiar with the real terms involved in the recording industry. At the end of the class and reading review my mentor proceeded to give me a tour of the studio, basically getting me to understand the microphones we are going to use as the weeks continue, and I had to take some pictures, as well as write down their names so that I could do research and memorize them all. I had a great time with my mentor this week and he even used the guitar, as I have been playing the guitar for all my life, to make sure I understood some of the lessons that are coming up. That really helped me a lot. I can’t wait to have the same skills and prepare myself to be a successful Audio Engineer!”
