It combines theory and practice of audio recordingLearn how to connect your equipment and understand signal flow. Learn the techniques and settings for producing audio recordings that sound great.

Minimum equipment is provided, but you are encouraged to also bring your own audio equipment, headphones, and laptop and software, and learn how to make them work during the workshop. This is what makes this workshop special -- Victoria will meet you where you’re at! The focus will be on making great sounding recordings using your own ears and whatever is on hand. 

Responding to participants’ needs, the format for this workshop will include a lot of open time for you to ask questions and try your hand at getting your equipment to work, with Victoria providing you assistance.
