Audio Engineering (Introduction and Advanced Programs, Group Class – 100 Hours) Enrollment Now Open For September class

Course Dates / Times: Please call for weekly class dates and times: 703 532 9033

Outline:  Choose either “Introduction to Audio Engineering” or “Advance Audio Engineering”. These programs are comprehensive with basic or advanced elements.  Students attend lecture classes in the studio and then learn “hands on” in small groups with the instructor in the control room.  The programs focus on recording studio audio engineering and studio techniques.  Program enrollment includes a new Avid Pro Tools hardware interface and software that easily installs on many computers; the 7th edition David Miles Huber “Recording Studio Handbook”; a question and answer workbook, and a “Pro Tools Official Courseware Manual”.

These are SCHEV (State Council for Higher Education in Virginia) approved programs, authorized to award “Certificates of Completion” to the graduated student.

Program time allotment for “Introduction to Audio Engineering” – (55 hours):

- (40) hours of comprehensive lecture instruction with the engineer/instructor in both Cue’s control rooms and studios.  Included in this time is the recording and mixing of a “real recording artist”, where the student participates in the sessions to both learn and implement these critical phases of audio production.

- (10) hours of Learning Lab time where the student practices and hones his or her new audio engineering skills.  Assignments are given along with general experimentation of various audio processing, recording and mixing software.

- (5) hours of unassisted “mixdown” time in Studio “A”, “B” or The Red Room where the student commands the helm of the “driver’s seat”.  Building confidence and fluency of their new knowledge of engineering in the control room is achieved most effectively through repetitive implementation of these skills.

Topics covered include:

  • Studio setup application and theory
  • Microphone selection and placement
  • Audio signal processors :  Mic preamps, equalizers, compressors, limiters, and multi-effects generators – with an emphasis on both analog rack mount units and software “plug-ins”
  • Analog and digital recording systems
  • Recording, editing and mixing
  • Pro Tools Software theory and application and general DAW logic
  • Analog and digital mixing consoles
  • Studio monitors and the critical listening environment
  • Acoustics and waveforms
  • Studio psychology and managing client expectations

Additionally we facilitate discussions pertaining to industry related “job and career” requirements, peripheral knowledge and skills that accentuate the applicants credentials, and a mock-up job interview with the school’s director or course administrator.

Upon successful completion of the 55 hour program, Cue Studios’ Center for Audio Engineering awards a “Certificate of Completion” to the graduated student.

After the course the student is encouraged to schedule an internship at Cue where he or she will observe and render tasks, participate in real recording sessions, and gain first hand knowledge of the inner workings of a successful recording studio business.
