The Audio Recording Techniques course is designed for beginner to intermediate recording engineers and producers. Most of the movies here cover mic placement techniques, from simple one mic methods to more elaborate multiple mic setups on a wide variety of electric and acoustic instruments. If you have different mics than the ones we're using here, all the techniques discussed will still apply. A small percentage of the movies are based around Pro Tools, that's a digital audio workstation that we used to record the audio from the mics in the studio. If you want to work with these files, you do need a certain level of proficiency with Pro Tools.
Checkout the Pro Tools Essential Training course in the lynda.com online training library, if you'd like to refresh your skills. That said, the principles and techniques covered while using Pro Tools are applicable with working with any recording system. Premium Members of lynda.com will also have access to the RAW WAVE files of each and every listening example presented throughout the course. You can import these files into your DAW of choice and review the audio examples on your own studio monitors in full 24-bit resolution. A good companion to this course material is my Audio Recording Basic Training book published by Alfred Music Publishing.
So other then having a basic understanding of Pro Tools or any other DAW, the only prerequisites for this course are a passion for music and a desire to take your recording skills to a new level.
