When we decided to produce a new series of tutorials on audio recording and production we searched the globe for the very best trainers and audio professionals ... and we found them at Modern World Studios and Singing Canary Productions!
The recording process is a fantastic audio journey. It's guided by the audio engineer who nurtures a sound from its acoustic inception, emanating from the musician's instrument as it travels through the air... to the proper microphone placed in an exact position... through the cable to the chosen pre-amp... then into the dynamics processors... through the mixing console's channel strip where it gets sculpted and shaped and given perspective... until it finally meets up with the other sounds whose journeys have followed completely different paths to the final mix.
And, every step of the way important, hit-making decisions are made by the the audio engineer that determine just how everything is going to work together to make the best recording possible. To master this incredible process we at macProVideo.com are pleased to bring you the first in a series of meticulously detailed tutorials on, "The Art of Audio Recording".
In this first installment, Introduction To Recording, you will learn all about sound -how it works and the waves that make it all possible. Next you'll explore all the different kinds of microphones and how and when to use them. You'll learn about frequency response, polarity, impedance and noise. From there you'll move on to the application of pre-amps and compression. Finally, you'll turn back to multi-microphone recording techniques and some theory on phase and the audio spectrum.
And this is just the beginning. We will be introducing many more full length live action tutorials in our "The Art of Audio Recording" series covering the recording of drums, guitars, orchestra, vocals and more!
So sit back and enjoy "An Introduction to Audio Recording" by Singing Canary Productions, and begin your journey of enriching your skills as an audio engineer!
I think that this course was well thought out. It allows you to build from it either by completing more tutorials or live implementation.
Great job everyone

A mic is not only a mic.
Sound is more than meets your ear.
This intro the hidden world of sound rrcording.
It realle wet my appetite for more.

Everything was really clear except i still had a little trouble understanding what mic impedance was. Great course!

Introduction to Recording by Singing Canary Productions is great! This information covered many of the same concepts that I covered in my digital recording class last month. The videos are high quality and contain a lot of useful information for the given amount of time. I look forward to progressing through the rest of the tutorial series!

A great studio course focusing on microphone setup, recording and processing techniques.
Really enjoyed the pres and compressor sections - with a close-up look at hardware models of familiar plugin emulations.

A great way to get started into recording, this course pretty much covers all the important aspects to consider throughout a recording session. Even if you're at an advanced level, it'll still be useful.

Really useful as basic foundation or repetition on the topic. A few great new tips and tricks also.. I kept thinking "I know that", which is exactly how re-filling old knowledge should work!

That's a proper sound engineer course. The tutorials for recording here are even better than the classes I've been having at the college. I definetely recommend, they are even cheaper than a real school.

Good course. Learned a lot about mic types and uses as well as mic pre's
