2014 Elective Course

July 27 - August 1, 2014

In this week long session, we will take a deeper look at microphones and how best to use them.  The first part of the week will be spent exploring mic technique for band/orchestra reinforcement, as well as vocals. In addition to technique, we will examine the differences between common microphone types to help determine the best way to use a particular mic. The latter part of the week will be spent focusing mainly on recording set up and techniques. This will also include how to create and record your very own sound effect library. Students should bring a storage device (thumb drive, cd, etc.).

Helpful, but not necessary for students to bring a personal laptop and thumb drive with Audacity or Garage band software installed, and any microphones from your schools that you would like to test out.
