Recording Magazines:

They will keep you in touch with the absolute latest updates and equipment releases plus interesting interviews with world-class engineers and producers.
They also contain articles about unique recording techniques and honest reviews and ratings for the latest and greatest recording equipment.

2. Audio Dictionary

The Audio Institute of America has compiled a special Audio Dictionary that contains hundreds of words and phrases that are used in recording and live sound.
Often, in the recording studio, engineers and musicians use their own jargon which has its own distinctive language.
For example do you know what this means: "Gimme 5 more dibs on the kick in my cans."
Translation: Turn up the volume of the bass drum in my headphones!

MIX Magazine says this about our course...

"This complete course for new engineers provides a well-rounded music industry curriculum that doesn't just stop at the final mix. It does much to duplicate and augment the hands-on experience students need. The series of 25 big lessons in a 500+ page manual are rich in detail but presented in a gradual style, so one doesn't get overwhelmed by the technology."
