54 Hours

Mixing Audio 200 provides an expanded understanding of the technical and creative aspects of mixing audio. Students will have the opportunity to mix several songs in each of TRAC’s world class mixing studios. Emphasis is placed upon the importance of careful listening and the creative use of mixing techniques helping students to continue developing their own style. Students will work through real world examples and submit mixes one or more songs as part of their individual project to complete this class.

This class also takes a detailed look into third-party plug-ins and DSP based processing tools used throughout the industry to solve the audio problems engineers are faced with on a daily basis. Students will learn about leading technology solutions from companies like iZotope, Celemony, and Sonnox. These are the same tools used by leading producers, mix engineers, composers, post-production sound designers, and forensic audio engineers. This element of the class will give students hands-on exposure to tools needed to clean, decipher, and restore audio signals for a variety of industry applications. Metering (Insight) and noise reduction (RX) software form iZotope, and pitch correction software from Celemony (Melodyne) are featured heavily in this class.
