Audio Engineering for the Music Industry

11 Courses, 762 Hours

The Audio Engineering for the Music Industry program provides training in every aspect of audio engineering for the music industry. Our music production school prepares students for careers as recording engineers, live sound engineers, record producers, and a wide variety of other music industry positions where thorough training in audio and an understanding of recording technology is essential. By utilizing all of the Component programs in their entirety (which are described in detail here) this program provides students with the depth of knowledge and the wide variety of skills required for success in today’s music industry.

As an Audio Engineering for the Music Industry student, you will start with the basic physics of sound, and progress through the theory and practice of analog and digital recording, mixing, operation of large format recording consoles, signal processing, microphones, multi-system synchronization, and all other technologies of twenty-first century recording. You will master the theory, operation and programming of synthesizers, samplers and sequencers for electronic music production, with applications for both recording and live performance. You will apply this knowledge and skill to the creation of recorded audio products through the editing and manipulation of sonic elements, and acquire in-depth training in digital technologies, including training in ProTools. You will also apply these same skills to sound reinforcement for live musical performances, including concert, theater and festival applications. And you will gain the industry knowledge, key legal concepts, and business practices and customs essential for building a successful career in music, recording and broadcasting. Upon completion, you can also receive Avid ProTools Certification in Music Production.

Jobs in the music industry are constantly evolving and changing as technologies become more powerful and cross over into new areas of music production. Tasks that once were divided among several engineers are now increasingly handled by a single, more qualified individual. For instance, MIDI has become a record production tool in every style of music, as well as in live sound reinforcement. Digital audio has become a major factor in electronic techno-music production. Producers are combining analog and digital recording to achieve higher quality and unique sounds. As the different disciplines in the music industry continue to become mixed and combined, our students are especially successful, thanks to the “cross-platform” training they receive in the Audio Engineering for the Music Industry program.

Our music production school’s industry-leading program combines just the right mix of classroom instruction and hands-on experience, using the same analog and digital equipment used by professionals today. And since your instructors are actually professional recording engineers themselves, you will acquire skills that just can’t be learned from a book, such as studio etiquette and discipline. Graduates of the Audio Engineering for the Music Industry program at Omega Recording Studios have the training and knowledge to make them exceptionally qualified candidates for successful music industry careers.
