You will learn how to use the software and equipment required to produce music, as well as basic music theory to help you better understand how music is crafted.
With guidance from your course tutor, you will put together your first track using synthesisers and sampling audio. Finally, you will learn how to utilise effects processors such as EQs, compressors and reverbs to make it sound great.

You will learn the so called “audio language” so that you have a complete understanding behind the meaning of terms such as sample rate, bit rate, decibels, gain, buffer size and more.
You will start by teaching what Midi tracks and Audio tracks are and how they differ. You will also learn what different audio formats are and how they are used in production.
MIDI will affect the souds and music that your virtual instruments will produce, and knowing how to record and edit MIDI is a fundamental skill that is required. You will learn what it is, as well as all the different ways you can record and edit MIDI.
