Sound recording starts with the sound itself. Whether it's an electric guitar or human voice, it all begins with a vibration that needs to be properly captured. That's why having the knowledge of the science of recording is essential for audio engineers at any level. This animation and graphic-filled course, by audio engineer and educator Joe Albano, serves up all the the audio facts you need to know to help you become a better engineer and producer.
After a brief introduction to the "tools" of the recording process, Joe dives right into the most influential step in the recording chain: the microphone. He explains how they work, shows you all the different designs and patterns while describing how to use them to achieve the best results. From there, you learn the essentials of speaker design and placement to assure that what you're recording is accurately presented to your ears!
Next up is the bible of analog and digital recording basics. Joe demystifies tape, AD & DA converters, sampling theory, quantization, bit resolution and much, much more.
So get the audio knowledge you crave right here, right now, in this amazing course in our Audio Concepts series by Joe Albano!
For anyone interested in starting to learn audio recording, this is THEE FIRST COURSE to take. Before any DAW or recording courses, come listen to Joe. He is the best!

Nice course. The audio basics and how to understand the beginning of the "magic" involved, when working with sound.

Another great course covering all the essentials in good, useful detail.
I really enjoyed the chapter about Analogue and Digital conversion - it's an example of the sort of stuff you kind of know about - but this course gives you the full picture.

I was curious to know how sound is recorded with mics and how this is transmitted to speaker. I've learnt it in this course and a lot more from analog to digital. Great course if you want to get some knowledge on audio basics.
