Here’s the next installment of my video diary as a student apprentice of the Recording Connection. In Lesson 4, we discussed microphones in detail. Enjoy!     Continuing my lessons as an apprentice of the Recording Connection…in this lesson I was introduced the various kinds of microphones used in a recording studio (and other settings, as well). I learned about dynamic/moving coil mics, dynamic ribbon and condenser mics (the kinds […]

Journal Of an Audio Student: Lesson 3–Analog vs. Digital

It’s been a few months since we posted in this “Journal Of an Audio Student” series (go here, here, here and here to catch up), but as a reminder, I’ve been documenting my progress as a student of the Recording Connection Audio Institute, a mentor-apprentice course which is taken on-site in a real recording studio. I’m going through this program for my own enrichment as a DIY musician, and I’m really […]

It was very interesting to take an in-depth tour of the studio, not just looking at the aesthetics of the different rooms, but also the materials used to build it. My mentor/instructor explained what materials were behind the walls to help them control […]

As a bit of introduction…while I cover topics related to DIY musicians in this column, I myself am a DIY musician—a singer/songwriter and composer. Recently, I decided to take a course in audio engineering because while I have many […]
