This course aims to give you these skills and prepare you for a wide range of exciting careers in music production and technical roles within the music and audio industries. This popular music orientated course combines a broad range of modules covering the technical aspects of audio system development and the creative process of music production. Having access to industry-standard recording studios and design labs you will develop practical skills that will help you stand out from the crowd. Your study will combine audio theory, recording and production, software and hardware development, business and research skills, digital audio signal processing, audio electrics and acoustics. It’s our goal to prepare you for exciting and rewarding careers, covering topics such as: * Audio engineering * Software and hardware development * Mixing and mastering techniques * Acoustics and psychoacoustics * Music production * Live sound production * TV and film post production Although this is our most technically demanding course, the emphasis is very much on the practical side of things with a focus on the use and application of equipment and processes used within an audio production environment. During your studies, you'll also get to study software development and gain valuable programming skills in several different languages which include C, C++, HTML, and Javascript. This will enable you to explore the use of the software in Music Technology applications such as DAWs and Plugins and more. You will have access to industry-standard recording studios and design labs where you will develop both your practical and theoretical skills. These facilities consist of nine fully equipped Pro Tools studios, two production studios, live sound facilities, two audio workstation labs, software and electronic design and embedded systems facilities. The studios are equipped with a variety of industry standard mixing consoles including SSL, a large format 48 channel Audient mixing console, Allan & Heath, Digidesign, Avid and Midas. We also have industry standard outboard processors, effects and high quality audio plugins from UAD and Waves. All tutors on the course have worked in the audio and music industry. Many are members of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and are active researchers in their field presenting work at both national and international level. You’ll have the chance to draw on their expertise, and gain hands-on experience too. We value research in Higher Education and see this as a key part of your studies, so you'll learn valuable research skills as part of the course. Our graduates have gone on from the course to work for companies like Adlib Audio working on live sound with major touring artists and Calrec Audio working on new digital mixing desks, while others have gone on to technical positions at companies like Abbey Road Studios. Professional links and accreditation: This BSc(Hons) course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET - https://www.theiet.org/membership/).
