Fundamentals Of Amplifiers Explained In Under 2 Minutes
Hollin Jones on Thu, November 23rd | 0 comments
Amplifiers come in all shapes and sizes and fulfil different roles depending on how they are used. Joe Albano breaks down how different amp types work in a studio environment.

When you think of amplifiers the first image that comes to mind might be a big guitar amp like a Marshall Stack. But recording setups also use many different kinds of amps, smaller and differently designed. In this short video from the course AudioPedia 108: Mixing and Mastering, Joe Albano explains the various types of amps found in studio systems. 

You'll see that all the amps in a setup serve a different function: power amps to drive passive speakers, amps inside active monitors, preamps and power amp circuits inside instrument amps, and much more! So if you've ever wondered about the fundamentals of how your mixing setup works, check out this video and the rest of the videos in this course!
