Building on the fundamentals learned in Audio Engineering 1, the Audio Engineering AAC8102 class provides a more in-depth study of the topics and principals introduced in the Audio Engineering 1 class and bridges the gap between the Audio Engineering 1 and Audio Engineering 2 classes. This class provides the student with the information necessary to succeed in the audio engineering field. Subjects covered in the course will include: an in depth study of room acoustics and the underlying theoretical principals of applying acoustic treatment; Recording studio interfacing and the standard recommended wiring practices for connecting audio equipment; acoustic treatment design and construction; Power systems and grounding and the principals of Recording studio design; equipment selection and upgrades; and control room monitor placement and selection. During the course of the semester the students will participate in designing a recording studio including all the necessary aspects needed to construct a “real life” commercial recording studio. The business aspects of running a commercial or project studio will also be covered. Even though the class relies heavily on math and science, no advance math or science class is needed for the student to benefit from this class. All the basic principals of math and science necessary are covered in Audio Engineering 1 or during this class. On completion of this class the student should be able to design and interconnect a commercial recording studio starting with nothing but a piece of paper. Audio Engineering 1 (AAC8002) is a prerequisite.
