Quiz

This is a reminder that you will have a quiz on Tuesday March 11th @11am in the auditorium. The quiz will cover microphones and recording techniques that we’ve covered in class this term.

Vocal assignment due next class

Your first project is due next class on February 4th and 6th.

Please comp, merge, glue, tune, and mix 8 bars of the lead vocal track from our RIP recording session which is found on the desktop of the computers in the lab under “MM-RIP”.

You can mute the guitars for this project. I am only concerned with the vocal track.

Your project will be marked in class.
