More than all other mediums, we seem to regard music as the most personal and vital to our existence. As its influence and importance continues to swell in the way human beings interact, connect and celebrate living together, so too increases the importance of understanding the art of audio engineering. This is precisely why I have decided to venture into education and build this class with Skillshare. I have had the pleasure of working with the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, Eminem, Beyonce, and countless other brilliant artists throughout my career. While I continue sharpen my skills even this deep into the game, I am excited to share some of the knowledge and techniques I have gained over the years with all of you.
This online Skillshare class is made up of four units, which include exclusive videos and materials broken up into the following lessons: Organizing a Mix– working with the basic components to a DIY mix, which include the Digital Audio Workstation [DAW], the tracks, and the controls, and how to optimally organize all of the audio information and tools for the task at hand Determining Levels – how to arrange levels in accordance with the artist’s vision for the song Adding Effects– how to work with basic effects like phasers, enhancers, reverb and delays, as well as create negative space or blend/fade where appropriate Tonal Balance – how to recognize when perfect tonal balance has been achieved
Users should be equipped with a Digital Audio Workstation or DAW, such as Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Garage Band, or Fruity Loops that features basic tools for mixing. Some DAWs can be downloaded for free.
