Why waste your life at a dead-end job you hate, when you could be doing what you love for a living? How great would it be to get up every morning and go to the studio as an audio engineer? What if you owned your own studio—imagine what that might be like!

The recording session essentially cannot take place without the audio engineer. He/she is the technician who enables the producer and artist to capture the perfect sound. The audio engineer is a creative force, using top-of-the-line equipment to work sonic miracles. It’s a remarkable combination of science and art.

From the very first day of study, our revolutionary programme places you inside an actual recording studio, where a professional audio engineer mentors you through our structured course curriculum. Between 2-7 times per week, you will attend class in the studio, where you will learn all of the following:



Audio engineers can make up to six figures annually in any city around the globe. Numerous career opportunities are available to those people who have been trained and connected in the field of audio engineering. Among these options are:

  • Chief Engineer
  • Staff Engineer
  • Assistant Engineer
  • Studio Owner

Many music producers, mixers, and mastering specialists are also trained audio engineers.

To put it succinctly, the best way to launch a career in the audio industry is to learn the inner workings of a recording studio as an audio engineer. In order to succeed, you MUST know how a real recording studio works.

Make no mistake: traditional audio schools will not get you into a real recording studio—only simulated ones. In their classes, you aren’t going to meet real working audio engineers or their clients, nor will you be studying under successful working producers. A college recording studio might look nice, but don’t mistake it for a real, professional recording studio. The Recording Connection Audio Institute will place you from day one in a real studio—not a simulated one.

To make it as an audio engineer, you also MUST know:

  • Digital audio
  • How microphones are designed and used
  • Correct microphone placement
  • The ins and outs of signal flow and patch bays
  • How analogue consoles work
  • In-depth study of analogue consoles
  • Audio processing
  • Reason, Logic, or Ableton Live
  • Pro Tools 8
  • Available audio plugins and how they work
  • Electronic music and beat matching
  • Signal processing and compressors
  • How to perform a professional mix-down
  • How various studios are designed and how their monitors work
  • Sync and automation
  • Recording and mixing ins and outs
  • Surround mixing How to deal with clients

QUESTION: Does it make more sense to learn audio in a real recording studio, or on a college campus in a classroom?
ANSWER: The best place to learn audio engineering is in an actual studio—from a professional with 10-30 years of music recording experience.

The stark truth is this: traditional colleges and trade schools, try as they might, simply cannot duplicate what can be learned inside a real recording studio. They are just not equipped for that task. (That is why you must still spend time interning in a recording studio AFTER YOU GRADUATE—because there are things you won’t learn in class.)

The Recording Connection Audio Institute gives you the same education you would receive in a traditional recording school classroom, in addition to the real world knowledge and wisdom your mentor will impart to you, gained from years of audio engineering experience.

And we offer this superior education to you for a fraction of the cost of traditional schools.
