Audio engineering

The Audio Engineering series is made up of three sequential courses that are offered by CMS as part-time, non-credentialed learning. Participating students will learn how to set-up and operate recording equipment and audio software through hands-on experience. Course content is focused on the basics of recording and engineering used in professional digital multi-track recording studios. Classes include practical recording exercises with a variety of instruments and culminate in recording sessions with live musicians/bands. All students participate in the studio sessions and creation of the finished recordings.

Audio Engineering 1, 2 and 3 are offered between May and August only. Please check this page for course updates in March/April 2024 and email commusic@douglascollege.ca if you have other questions.
