What You Will Learn

Music Software (DAW)

Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) such as Logic X have become the mainstay of recording music in the 21st century. We refer to this type of recording and mixing as “In The Box”. All our Macs have Logic X installed with a host of plugins and software instruments, too. We teach you how to understand the interface, how to record in the software, edit audio and MIDI, applying effects, EQ, compression and work with software instruments.


Over our two studio environments, Studio A and its large recording space and Studio B, fully digital with its acoustically designed large vocal recording area, we teach you the nuts and bolts of recording live acoustic sources, guitars, drums and vocals

Music Production

No matter what style you’re working on, we give you the tips and tricks to make your music professional using the latest and greatest sounds and plugins.


We show you how to mix audio to a professional standard; how to understand EQ, panning, gain structure, compression, effects and their application in various forms of modern music production


All mixes need to be outputted finally to a stereo master to make a record: whether it’s a CD, to iTunes or other digital master. We show you how to take your music to a finished stereo mix, how to understand levels and getting it ready for the radio!
