Pro Tools was developed by a group of audio engineers out of the growing need for a software program that could replicate the functions of expensive studio equipment in a digital environment. Since its development, this powerful digital audio workstation has come to be the industry standard among audio professionals. These days, you’d be hard pressed to find a modern record release that was not recorded or mixed with Pro Tools, or a professional recording studio that doesn’t use it. Not only is it utilized by major label producers and world-class engineers alike, but it’s also found in home studios across the world, enabling songwriters, composers and musicians to access levels of sound quality once only available at the most expensive recording studios, and at a fraction of the cost. Suffice it to say that if you’re serious about a professional career as a music producer, audio engineer or other industry professional, you’ll need to “speak the language” of pro recording studios, and that means you need to learn Pro Tools inside and out. At the Recording Connection, you will be paired with an experienced engineer who will teach you this powerful software program in one-on-one sessions, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to practice with it and master it, not only in the studio but with your own copy at home, included in your tuition. Ultimately, learning Pro Tools will give you the versatility you need in order to be competitive in the music industry, whether you’re trying to get hired at a recording studio, producing your next hit record or opening a studio of your own. A working knowledge of Pro Tools helps qualify you for the following careers: Music Producer Mix Engineer Live Sound Engineer Music Director Sound Designer Sound Designer for Games Film Composer Music Editor ADR Technician Foley Artist Forensic Audio Specialist [-]

We partner with award-winning sound designers, mixers, and composers who have contributed to films like Black Hawk Down and We Were Soldiers, as well as top video games like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Guild Wars 2. [+]

Course Studies in Ireland 2017. LEARN POST PRODUCTION AUDIO ON-THE-JOB. AVAILABLE IN ALL 50 STATES AND CANADA, ONLY THROUGH RECORDING CONNECTION With locations across all 50 states, as well as in Canada, Australia and the U.K., the Recording Connection has helped thousands of students launch their music industry careers over the past quarter century. Our collective of mentors includes hundreds of experienced producers and engineers with real album credits, many of whom work with Grammy-winning and Platinum-selling recording artists and musicians. We screen our mentors carefully to make sure our students are receiving the highest caliber of training and guidance available, enabling them to connect to the music industry and go on to successful careers of their own. Specialized Training in Post Production Audio (Film/TV/Video Games) Is Now Available Through the Recording Connection Are you dreaming of a career in composing for Film, TV and/or Video Games? 
Do you get a rush out of editing music and sound to sync to picture, and want to do it at the pro level? 
Are you passionate about writing lush string arrangements and/or electronic beats and synth passages? 
Do you record your own music at home but want to do it professionally?
 Do you dream of hearing your music on feature films, TV shows, commercials or other media? 
 Do you think you have the talent to make it in the post production world if only you knew the right people? 
Do you have the passion and work ethic that it will take to make it happen? If you answered yes to any/all of these questions, our new Post Production Sound and Music Program may be just the thing for you! Post production encompasses a wide range of tasks, from dialogue recording, ADR and sound editing to foley, surround sound mixing, sound design and writing music to picture. The sound and music that you hear on video games, films and TV embraces a wide range of styles and can include everything from electronic grooves to racing cinematic orchestral passages to specially created sounds for monsters, aliens, magic spells, car crashes and more! All of this sound is created by audio professionals at the post production level, online media and with the right skills and connections, there’s room at this table for you! At the Recording Connection, you’ll receive our exclusive one-on-one mentoring as you learn hands-on, working alongside top professionals in your field of interest. We partner with award-winning sound designers, mixers, and composers who have contributed to films like Black Hawk Down and We Were Soldiers, as well as top video games like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Guild Wars 2. Why One-On-One Training Works Well With Post Production In the post-production niche of the music industry, a special set of skills is required to be successful—more so than just learning principles in a textbook. In fact, most post-production disciplines such as dialogue editing, sound design, mixing, foley and music composition already naturally involve some sort of mentoring. Mastering your craft really requires getting one-on-one instruction and feedback from someone who is already successful in the field. This is why our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach is such a great fit for careers in post production: it is a much more effective way to learn these specialized skills than a classroom setting can provide.
