Sound ENGINEERING INDUSTRY DIPLOMA

Overview

The Sound Engineering UK Industry Diploma course at Pro Sonic will develop a theoretical and practical understanding of the workflow of sound engineers including recording, mixing, production and mastering. This will be achieved by theoretically and practically exploring the area of sound engineering through lectures, tutorials and workshops from Pro Sonic’s expert global network of faculty line-up from Grammy Awards Winning sound engineers to record producers, songwriters and composers, in a research-informed environment. In particular, students will actively engage with learning, developing and extend artistic and technical outcomes in the sonic arts including sound recording, audio production, advanced sound designing, mixing and mastering; provide a comprehensive understanding of sound engineering theory and its practice; enhance problem solving skills; and provide a reflexive active skill set that can adapt to the rapidly changing landscape of sound engineering, its practices and processes in music, media and film industry.

With Pro Tools at its core, this sound engineering course at Pro Sonic, is rounded-out with advanced Sound Designing & Synthesis with high-end third party plugins that also work in conjunction with Ableton Live and Logic Pro. 

Pro Tools 101 coursework constitutes the basic principles you’ll need to complete a project using Pro Tools, from initial setup to mixdown. Whether your project involves multi-track recordings of live instruments, MIDI sequencing of software synthesizers, or audio looping, Pro Tools 101 will provide you with real-world examples and frequent hands-on assignments designed to teach you how to record, edit, and mix on a basic level.

Pro Tools 110 coursework, the second stage of Avid’s Pro Tools certification program, builds on the foundational skills taught in Pro Tools 101, and march towards a broader range of tools and the techniques that will help you tackle more complex projects. This edition focuses on working with expanded hardware and software configurations, developing versatile tools for manipulating and editing both audio and MIDI data, and implementing various techniques to facilitate larger and more sophisticated mixing scenarios teaching you the real-world examples and frequent hands-on assignments that will enhance your capabilities in all aspects of audio production. 

To strengthen the industry skills and knowledge base, Pro Sonic has also included the Rockschool, UK Contemporary Arts Grades Coursework Edition that expands on the 25+ year history of innovation throughout music education, providing aspiring producers and engineers with the most successful graded syllabus.

On completion of a Rockschool, UK Contemporary Arts Grades, you will own a wealth of technical, practical and theoretical knowledge that you can apply to real-world scenarios – whether it’s in audio production, music production, mixing, editing, mastering of audio for music and media.
