Overview
Status: Available | Released: Jun 27th, 2012
In the DAW world of pull-down menus and point & click selections we often don't realize how all of these actions are actually modifying the audio signal path. Maybe it's because we're not pushing real buttons and adjusting real knobs. Or maybe it's simply because we no longer make physical connections using patch cords and patch bays. Yet, understanding analog connections is key audio knowledge to have since all DAWs are based on these important analog concepts. It turns out that, if you really want to learn audio recording, plugins and mixing, you've got to understand the incredible signal path that audio tracks take on their convoluted journey to the console's output and, eventually, to your final mix.

This course has all the signal flow answers! With its detailed explanations, animations, graphics and excellent photographs, professor Paul Bissell takes you under the surface and deep into audio signal flow. Here you'll learn everything about I/O, sends, returns, EQ, phase, DI, mic preamps, mixing console circuitry, patch bays, outboard processors and more.

So if you really want to "get" audio, this advanced master class on analog signal flow will get you what you need to know. After finishing this course you'll sit in front of any analog console or DAW with a new confidence, assured that your audio recording skills are now at a whole new level!
