Ear Training Course for Audio Engineers and Musicians
What you'll learn
- Learn to identify frequencies, delay and reverb times, compression settings, phase and stereo effects, and more by ear to make better mixes.
- This course requires stereo speakers or headphones; beginner to advanced
This Ear Training course is designed to train your ears to identify audio characteristics like frequencies, delay times, the sound of compression, phase and stereo effects, and more. Demonstrations and drills allow you to learn the sounds and practice critical listening so you can produce better sound. In section 1 (the Mixing Engineer's Toolkit), you learn the sounds; you can see the effects of the audio processing on the signal as you hear it. Then in section 2, you train your ears to identify sounds by practicing your skills with the Rack Box Drills. Whether you are seeking a career in audio or looking to make better sound, this course is essential.
Who this course is for:
- Audio engineers and recording musicians who want to train their ears and improve their critical listening and mixing skills.
