Most studios rely on digital audio workstations (DAWs) for recording, mixing and processing. However, by the simple fact that you are hearing the audio means there's an analog component present somewhere in the signal path and the audio has been converted from digital to analog in order to be played through studio monitors and headphones. This, essentially, makes every studio a hybrid studio!

Many engineers take it even further by incorporating analog processing hardware like compressors, limiters, EQ and, of course, analog consoles in their mixing workflow to add warmth and character to the mix. This course takes an in-depth look at all those more complex hybrid signal paths are setups, and much more...

The course starts by looking at how most studios are now mostly virtual (everything being recorded and mixed inside a computer). Joe then shows us the common analog hardware that you will find in studios, as well as the all important art of of gain staging. Next, you learn how to integrate different hardware electronic instruments and processors into a hybrid studio, and how to MIDI sync external workstations. Moving on, you get insights about analog summing, using an analog mixing console, and other key aspects of hybrid studio production.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced producer, and whatever DAW and analog gear you use, you will gain valuable insights and get a better understanding of digital and analog audio. So don't wait, watch this course now and discover the world of hybrid digital/analog audio! Let's dive in!
