You can learn the basic concepts of Audio Engineering and Sound Systems in this course!
Sound systems are very important for the modern world. We all have enjoyed (or suffered!) with them. We can find sound systems in many different situations, like:
•Houses of worship
We use sound systems even in other less evident situations, like: stores, malls, airports, train stations, etc. So, sound systems are essential for many modern-day activities.
Nowadays, it’s easier and cheaper to get our own audio gear for any particular application. However, to properly operate a sound reinforcement system, you need some basic knowledge of audio engineering. In this way, you can avoid unpleasant or even hazardous situations.
Unfortunately, it’s very common to find systems that “sound bad”. This is so common, that it’s almost a cliché to hear a feedback coming out of every sound system! It’s rare to find situations where everything sounds right, clear, loud and you can really enjoy the show. Most of the times, this is due to a lack of technical knowledge.
In this course, you will learn the Fundamentals of Audio Engineering. This will be your first step to understand any kind of sound system. You will know the basic “blocks” or stages in any audio system, its importance and applications.
Sound systems evolve, brands and models change but fundamentals don’t. The basics of sound engineering remain the same, if you learn these concepts you will understand any audio system: analog, digital, virtual, vintage or modern!
You will learn topics, like:
•Sound and audio
•Frequency, hertz, decibels
•Sound pressure level
•Systems, mixers, pros and cons
•Cables and connectors
•Conventional arrays and line arrays
You will also identify the causes and solutions of common problems in sound systems:
•Misuse of microphones
•Bad loudspeaker positioning
This will help you to avoid damages in the equipment (or people!) and to improve the audio quality.
This course is an ideal start for anyone who wants to learn about audio engineering and to operate pro-audio equipment properly. The course is also useful for technical staff that already have practical knowledge but lacks the basic theory of sound and audio.
The course has been carefully designed to be a self-paced, step-by-step process right from the beginning, so you won’t need any previous knowledge. You can even study a pair of lessons in just 15 minutes a day!
You will be guided by a certified audio instructor (Meyer Sound, Avid, Yamaha), with more than 15 years of teaching experience at all levels, from seminars to college-level classes and a top instructor on Udemy, so academic quality is guaranteed.
