Meeting Location: RI Studio A, College of Media and Entertainment, Middle Tennessee State University
As the semester gets underway, we want to welcome all interested students, especially new and pre-candidacy students, to the MTSU Audio Production program with this orientation in Studio A.
We'll start with an overview of AES and student membership benefits. Then, we'll discuss ways that you can contribute to recording sessions as an assistant, even if you're not enrolled in a particular production class. Good assistants must demonstrate a number of important social and technical skills which we'll explore through some discussion and hands-on participation.
Eyes and ears open.
Mouth closed (unless in emergencies!)
Think and plan ahead.
Set-up and manipulate stands correctly.
Lay out, dress and coil cables properly.
Handle mics securely and carefully.
Know your signal flow...!
