Work with music through a blend of art & science
All of the music you hear today on the radio or in the movies need electronic components. Whether or not you’ve played an instrument before, this class will introduce you to becoming the one who’s in charge of recording, and is behind the scenes mixing tracks and adding unique elements together into a cohesive piece of art – the audio engineer. Led by an expert Empow Studios teacher, students will work with Reaper, a professional digital audio workstation (DAW) using loops, samples, virtual instruments, and MIDI controllers, as their compositions start to come to life. After students lay down their individual tracks, they’ll learn about mixing techniques including equalizers, panning, and filters, to augment their sounds and finalize their compositions.
