GUITAR & MUSIC PRODUCER

(From analog to digital and back)

PURPOSE OF THE COURSE

To provide the basic and intermediate skills thus allowing the guitarist-producer to realize, even in her/his own home studio (starting from scratch) a finished and mastered musical product. As of DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) we choose Logic Pro X for the completeness and quality of its supplied plugins and virtual instruments. The learning path will cover:

  • DAW functionalities

  • DAW signal processing “off the shelf” capabilities

  • Audio engineering fundamentals (information that any sound engineer/producer must be aware of to finalize the products).
