Sound Engineering 101 Jan Koppe
How to make things loud You will find a few pitfalls on the path between a microphone and a loudspeaker. To successfully record or amplify $things, it helps to know some basic rules about sound and its processing and amplification. I want to teach you those basic rules by practical examples and answer your specific questions. --- If you ever wanted to mix a small concert, play in a band, or just want to capture or amplify sound, you can gain the base skills in this whorkshop, which will help you avoid the biggest mistakes and hopefully enable you to produce a good sounding result. For this, we will embark on a small journey throughout the whole signal chain - starting at the phyiscal sound, how it propagates, curious phenomenons, how to best capture it with different types of microphones and transmit it as a electrical signal. The different possibilities of processing that signal will be shown with a few small examples, before we will end on a brief look at loudspeakers. There is no prior knowledge required to participate in this workshop. My intention is to stay as close as possible to practical application - If you're afraid of formulas, you can still feel comfortable here. I'd like you to tell me about some problems that you might have, because the contents of the workshop will heavily depend on the interests of the participants.
