Universal Audio kickstart educational DVD series with Studio On Screen volume 1 24/11/06
Universal Audio have released the first in a new series of audio educational DVDâ€™s.
Developed by UA in association with Keyfax New Media, Studio On Screen Vol.1 is aimed at Beginner to Intermediate Level DAW users or potential UA customers interested in learning about the use of UA products via an audio-visual journey exploring all the steps a song goes through from demo through tracking, mixing and mastering to a record-company-ready CD master.
UAâ€™s President, Matt Ward told us, â€œThe market is flooded with videos which promise to teach you how to produce music â€˜like the proâ€™ or â€˜mix it like a recordâ€™. The only problem is that a lot of customers donâ€™t know the basics of how mic pres, compressors and EQs function. So, when we here at UA set out to make our first educational video, we wanted something which would fill in these blanks for a novice or intermediate engineer/producer while still providing enough tips and tricks to interest more seasoned pros.â€�
UA Studio On Screen Vol.1: Recording & Mixing From Demo to Finished Master
Recording Techniques: Mic Positioning, DI, Gain-Staging, Compression
UA Hardware: 2192, 6176, 8110, LA-610 & SOLO/610 use scenarios
Tracking Techniques: Audio industry engineering/production pro's interviewed
CD Mastering Session: Tutorial demonstrating Precision Series UAD plug-ins
UA say that Recording and Mixing from Demo to Finished Master takes viewers on the journey of a song; from its modest beginnings in a Solo/610, UAD-1 Project Pak fueled bedroom studio, to a professional recording studio, flush with UA mic pres and compressors and a UAD-1 stuffed DAW all the way to Coast Recorders in San Francisco, where Michael Romanowski masters the track using only the UAD Precision Mastering plug-ins. While this video is centered, on UA products, UA say that the concepts and applications presented will be of great interest to all desktop recording customers, whatever gear they use. Pricing and Availability:
The DVD is available immediately from UAâ€™s online store my.uaudio.com at the promotional launch price of $29.95 until December 31st 2006 (a $10 saving from the regular MSRP of $39.95).
