These days more and more people are recording at home instead of going to professional studios. The technology involved has become so accessible that almost anyone can start up their own studio. While this means that there's more music out there than ever, it also means there's a lot more poorly produced music floating around. It's not enough to simply have the required equipment. You need to know how to use it!
The purpose of this course is to help you get a solid grounding in audio engineering and sound recording. You will learn the fundamentals of sound engineering that are crucial to your success in the studio. Understanding the physics of sound and how to properly use things like compression will make all the difference in your recordings.
In this course, Jim Pavett will give you a detailed overview on every aspect of the recording process, with hands on projects covering how to set up your monitors, how to handle phase issues, and how to properly place microphones. Although there is some theory involved everything is well explained, complete with hundreds of helpful visuals. Jim will take you through a complete journey of the fundamentals of audio recording.
Throughout the course, Jim also gives opportunities for you to get out of your seat and get involved. Whether it's figuring out which frequency your hearing tops out at, or moving around the room to figure out the best place to put your monitors, there are tons of practical lessons to try out on your own. If you're starting to put together a studio and are feeling overwhelmed with everything around you, let us help you out by teaching you the fundamentals of audio so you'll never feel like an alien in your own studio again.

A great course wtih precise and complete infomation, on almost everything you need to konow, to start a career in the audio world.
I am a big fan of Jim Pavett's courses here on MPV. This class has contained the most amount of information on a topic of any courses that I have completed so far. So many of these lessons contain solid fundamentals of being a music producer or engineer, I wouldn't recommend anything to improve this course except to include any more useful studio concepts just like these. Given the amount of content already provided, this isn't a problem.
Great course if you're brand new to audio. Good course if you want a quick review.
This was an interesting course on the fundamentals of audio recording and equipment. Reminded me of the first year of my undergrad degree. I had to knock s star off for the overpowering and annoying intro music - that was present on all 92 videos!
Jim Pavett goes deep down to the level of electronic, covers studio and sound basics extensively. Must watch this course again ton's of info.
This tutorial is probably neglected by most, but surely is one of the most important I have watched so far. Loads of basic concepts that everyone should have in mind before even touch a recording gear. Really good!
A fantastic tutorial for anyone in the recording world. Having not looked at a lot of the technical parts to recording in years I found this was a great refresher. Great for beginners and advanced.
Sort of dry, however very informative. Very information dense and many areas covered should be researched to understand them. Overall, a good intro vid for beginners
This is essentially a reference list of audio ideas/terms (very dry presentation) - some of the videos are very short and don't contain much info. There are some basic errors (e.g. bits vs. bytes).
Wow.. this guys really knows his stuff. Makes me remember how new I really am. But thanks to this tutorial I'll be mixing like a pro in no time! :)
This course has so much useful info! It's a must if you are setting up your own studio.
Thanks for this tutorial, it gave me a great outlook on music production.
A very thorough and comprehensive overview of recording technique, the physics of sound and studio technology. Very practical and easy to follow. A great foundation for anyone who is into recording. I cant wait for the second instalment in the series. Would love to have a similar series made for the home studio enthusiast that covers practical information on how to set up a home studio that minimises typical home studio problems/issues. This guy is definitely a an expert in his field and is worth every minute spent learning from him. He sometimes feels a bit slow and laboured in delivery... however, I find him an absolute pleasure to watch and listen to. If you are new to all of this I would highly recommend you start here for an excellent foundation that will set you up for accelerated learning. If you have been recording for a while this is a great way to fill in any holes or gaps in your knowledge of the basic theory of sound and recording.
Very informative, and I appreciated that it began with some of the most basic concepts. I think many of us have holes in our learning, and it was useful to have something that began with the basics. In terms of content, I think this is wonderful. The delivery was a little bit stilted and sometimes dry. I couldn't tell if this was meant for an audio-only recording, as the instructors tone was so slow and over-enunciated that it seemed something like that. All in all, I'm happy to have gone through this, though I think the presentation could have been made a bit more engaging and slick. Thanks!
I'm not all the way through this series, but I wanted to share my thoughts: This is the tutorial I've been waiting for! Very in-depth, dense with great information, and refined/uncluttered in its delivery. This is definitely a worthwhile investment of time and money for the recording enthusiast that wants to take the craft seriously. I'll even forgive the fact that they use PCs in their examples... (MACprovideo anyone?)
