ASKVideo has announced the release of The Studio Edge: Pro Audio Recording Series tutorial on DVD. The first installment, entitled Studio Concepts, Gear & the Physics of Sound by Jim Pavett, is designed to give home recording enthusiasts a solid grounding in audio engineering and sound recording.
"More and more people are recording at home instead of going to professional studios," says Steve Kostrey, President of ASK Video. "The technology involved has become so accessible that almost anyone can start up their own studio. However, it's not enough to simply have the required equipment. You need to know what it does and how to use it. Jim does an excellent job of building a solid base of understanding and technique to help you get the most from your gear and your studio."
In this first installment of The Studio Edge, users will learn the fundamentals of sound engineering that are crucial to success in the studio. The tutorial's author, Jim Pavett, provides a detailed overview on every aspect of the recording process, with hands on projects covering how to set up monitors, how to handle phase issues, and how to properly place microphones. Although there is some theory involved, everything is explained clearly, complete with hundreds of helpful visuals.
The DVD uses ASK Videos user interface to present more than 3 hours of instruction divided into 92 high-quality video chapters. The chapters range from physics of sound topics such as Sound Waves, Ohm's Law, Frequency, and Phase, to studio concepts like Headroom, Compression, EQ, and Delay/Reverb as well as covering specifics related to studio gear such as Microphone Placement, Patch Bays, MIDI, Computers, and more.
Throughout the tutorial, Jim also gives opportunities for the user to get involved. Whether it's figuring out which frequency your hearing tops out at, or moving around the room to figure out the best placement for the monitors, there are tons of practical lessons to try out.
