From keen amateur to professional with Audio Masterclass:
Do you love recording? Do you love it so much that you're not happy with the results you are getting? You probably already have a home studio setup and you've made quite a few recordings.
Making a recording isn't so difficult. Making a recording that sounds professional is another matter altogether - there's a lot to know, a lot of skill to acquire and experience to gain.
That's where Audio Masterclass can help, and has been helping people learn how to get the best from their home recording studio equipment online since 2001 - that's ten years of online experience, and their offline experience in audio education goes back way further than that.
If you already realise that your recordings are not yet quite up to professional standards, then you are in an excellent place to make fast progress.
You don't need another preamp or plug-in. You don't need another audio mag full of manufacturers' adverts. What you need is concise and correct knowledge, clear instructions on how to develop your skills and helpful individual advice to show you where you're going wrong, and how to take that next step towards pro standards.
Audio Masterclass' experience in Audio Training since 1985, online since 2001, you will find the Audio Masterclass Music Production and Sound Engineering Course extremely straightforward to follow.
Each module has audio example files for you to load into your digital audio workstation and listen to closely (more than 1000 in the whole course). The course text will explain clearly what you should be listening for, and how to achieve the same results in your own recordings.
The course manual provides the important background information, with 'check questions' and model answers so you can easily track your own progress.
But the most important part of the course is the Practical Assignment Project in each module.
Each practical assignment project concentrates on a certain element of audio skill. Audio Masterclass' has been designing projects like these since 1986, so they know exactly what tasks to ask you to perform, so that you make the fastest progress.
When you have finished each practical assignment project then you can submit it online for assessment by Audio Masterclass. They will grade your work and send you back a report showing you in detail which areas need improvement, so that you can rapidly reach a professional standard.
Why buying more equipment or software won't help you make better recordings:
Let's suppose you have a digital audio workstation (DAW) already, Cubase, Digital Performer, Logic, Pro Tools, Sonar or equivalent. The Audio Masterclass course is compatible with all of them.
Your DAW came already equipped with a wide range of plug-ins including EQ, compression, delay and reverb.
Do you have a microphone of professional quality? The Shure SM57 costs less than $100 and turns in an excellent performance (you can hear it in the course, in one of the recordings made in Abbey Road Studio 2). Do you have a reasonably good pair of loudspeakers or headphones to monitor on?
At this point, many home studio owners think that to improve the standard of their recordings, what they need is more equipment and software. And so they save up their money and spend, spend, spend. Or - bad idea - buy more equipment and software on their credit card.
And then they wonder why their recordings don't sound any better. The reason for this is that to make great recordings you need three things...
Knowledge, Skills, Experience:
Until all of these are in place, the best equipment and software in the world won't make any difference.
In the Audio Masterclass Music Production and Sound Engineering Course you will learn how to make recordings of a fully professional standard using only the standard plug-ins that came with your DAW.
When you can do that, you'll be able to get the very best out of more expensive and exotic equipment and software. Otherwise, frankly, you'll be wasting your time and money.
Audio Masterclass have been involved in Audio Training since 1985 and they have seen this over and over again. It isn't in the equipment or software, it's all in your knowledge, skills and experience.
How to succeed in the pro music and sound industry:
The first thing you need to know is that it's tough to make it in the music and sound industries. The reason for that is there are so many other people in competition with you.
But just because it's tough doesn't mean that it's impossible. You may need some luck. But when luck comes your way you had better be prepared!
So the first thing you need to do is make sure the quality of your work is as good as the best. (It would help if it is better than the best, but that isn't essential.)
Unfortunately many people imagine that their work is professional in quality, but it isn't. So they are going to struggle and struggle and eventually get nowhere.
It is difficult to be able to assess your own work. So that is one area where Audio Masterclass can help. Through the Practical Assignment Projects of the course, they will show you exactly where you stand with respect to professional expectations. And we will help you close any gap so by the end of the course, your work will be well up with the front runners.
But even when your work is first class, there are still a lot of competitors whose work is equally good. So you will have to know how to knock on people's doors in the correct way. You need to get your work listened to.
People in the industry receive a huge quantity of demo recordings, and it's a harsh reality that only some will get listened to.
But Audio Masterclass' experience and research, from inside the industry, have shown them what it takes to get your work heard first. And the course will show you how to do that very clearly.
And you should not forget that if you can't be a star recording artist or producer, there are many other ways to work successfully and profitably in the pro music and sound industries.
Take TV music for example. If you listen carefully to background music on TV you will hear a) that there's a lot of it, and b) that most of it isn't anything special. So here's an area where there are opportunities for anyone who is determined enough.
Let's talk about the Audio Masterclass certificate:
In reality, no-one in the industry cares much about certificates, although a studio manager might well be impressed that you have taken the trouble to earn one.
Audio Masterclass offers a certificate as a personal reward to you, for the hard work you are going to put in on the course. It's something that you can look at and take pride in your achievement. Certification is available with the optional assessment package.
But it is your Showreel that will get you work. At the end of the course Audio Masterclass will take you through the steps necessary to create a professional-looking showreel of your own, one that will get listened to, not thrown in the trash (like so many do).
In summary, Audio Masterclass has put all of their experience in Audio Training since 1985 into the Audio Masterclass Music Production and Sound Engineering Course and are totally confident that it will be of enormous help to you and you will in a short time be producing recordings of the professional quality you seek.
