Recording engineers are required to work with different types of recording
setups and to be familiar with a range of studio layouts and mixing and
recording consoles. This standard focus on the signal chain paths of
professional mixing and recording consoles.
This standard utilises the multi tasking skills expected of today’s recording
engineers and programmers.
Good practice and operation:
Recording engineers are required to work with many different types of
recording set-up and need to be able to operate a diverse range of mixing
consoles, understanding different layouts and hybrid combinations of split
console and in-line analogue and digital mixing consoles.
This standards covers all sections of the mixing console and why recording
studios require a certain configuration of mixing console. It is important that
you understand the very differing aspects of mixing and recording consoles for
the recording industry sectors and that of other broadcast radio, television/film
and Club DJ sectors.
You also need to understand the technical and practical rationales behind such
features as input channels, metering, routing, EQ sections, monitor sections,
groups, auxiliaries, fold back and master sections.
This standard focuses primarily on the recording and playback signal chain of a
standard 24-96 channel mixing console found in music recording studios.
You will need to show that you understand the need to maintain proper gain
structures and follow procedures on the mixing console which will allow it to
function properly without damage. This standard will also cover the basic
background to the operation of a mixing console before being expected to
master or operate it’s practical professional use. You will demonstrate this
understanding by making use of relevant equipment. You will also use a range
of recording console designs and layouts and will be able to identify the main
differences between split, in-line and digital recording and mixing consoles.
You will be required to use a minimum 24-48 channel frame with a fully wired
patch bay to complete this unit.
