Course Overview

This unique and immersive 2 day course, taught by Brighton Road Recording Studios co-owner Jake Skinner, gives you the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ in a real recording session with a full live band! In a small group, Jake will take you through the process of recording, editing, mixing, and mastering one full-band song from start to finish in Logic Pro X. You will learn all the studio essentials from microphone selection & placement to audio editing, mixing and much more! 

On day one we will set up and record a full live band together, and on day two we will edit, mix and master the song we have recorded.

At the end of the course students are given a copy of the Logic project and the 'stems' from the session so they can practice their editing and mixing skills at home!

Who is the course for?

  • Musicians and songwriters who want to learn some new recording and production skills, and improve the quality of their home recordings

  • Aspiring audio engineers/producers who are just starting out and are looking to gain some experience in a professional studio

  • Anyone wanting to learn more about recording & music production in a professional studio environment

What will I learn?

- Signal path and gain structure
- Microphone selection and placement
- Setting up monitor mixes
- An introduction to phase
- Essential audio editing in Logic
- Mixing and mastering techniques
- Exporting your finished mix for release

I would highly recommend the course to anyone wishing to gain some knowledge in this area. A weekend very well spent - thank you!

I have already started applying some of the techniques I learnt to my own projects, where I’ve noticed a huge difference in my mixes and recording approaches!

The most amazing part has been mixing a track at professional level using pretty much only stock plug-ins, which is super useful for us songwriters that don’t have expensive hardware available in our bedroom. Jake has been great in explaining all the processes, and open to any kind of questions. Totally recommend it.

Great weekend. Fantastic studio. Jake is an excellent engineer and translates this exceptionally through his teaching method. Fully recommend!

I’ve learnt everything I need to know about professional recording. Learning about mixing and mastering was the most interesting part for me. I think every musician should go to this course to learn more about what is going on on ‘the other side!
