This looked really interesting to me, it a new video course on audio recording. It’s hosted and written by audio recording educator Bobby Owsinski. Audio Recording Techniques is a five-hour program where Owsinski shows how to capture great recordings of drums, acoustic and electric guitars, upright and electric bass, keyboards, horns, strings, vocals, and more. Using 3D graphics combined with live-action practical examples, the course demonstrates various microphone types, placements, and response patterns.
