SOUND 201: Troubleshooting/Outboard Gear

The focus of this class will be two fold: learning how to use the outboard gear that will inevitably lead to the need to trouble shoot. Some of the topics covered: diagnosing and tracing out of a problem, signal flow, and what to do in an emergency. Compressors, gates, equalizers and effect processors will be explained and demystified. Techniques for their use will be thoroughly discussed and practiced.  Students are encouraged to come prepared with lots of questions.
