“This was a great opportunity for me to see the audio engineering process from step 1. Preparing the room, setting up pro tools, meeting the client, setting up the right instrument mics and channeling them into the system. Not to mention my involvement in the production of the album! The client needed bass on one of his songs and tried doing it himself but couldn’t quite figure out the right notes to play with his off-guitar rhythms. A collaborator gave it a shot and got the notes right but couldn’t get the time signature right. After about 45 minutes of trying I finally offered to take a stab at it and sure enough after having to listen to the track a few times I got the part right and even threw some fills in here and there to add some color. There aren’t many feelings like making a musicians day by making the sound in his head come to life. I look forward to the day I get to download this song online and listen to the bass and say ‘that’s me!'”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
