|Course Code||Course Name||Semester||Theoretical||Practical||Credit||ECTS|
|Language of instruction:||Turkish|
|Type of course:||Must Course|
|Mode of Delivery:||Face to face|
|Course Coordinator :||Dr. Öğr. Üyesi YAHYA BURAK TAMER|
Dr. Öğr. Üyesi CEMAL BARKIN ENGİN
|Recommended Optional Program Components:||None|
|Course Objectives:||This course examines the concept of multi-track mixing, an essential phase of musical post-production, from aesthetical and technical perspectives. In addition to necessary hardware and software training, the course will also focus on audio oriented ear training, genre appreciation and creative technical strategies. Students will be encouraged to develop analytical yet individual approaches to mixing.|
The students who have succeeded in this course;
I. Familiarize with historical and current mixing styles / techniques.
II. Advance audio hardware and software skills.
III. Analyze a mix from spectral, dynamic and dimensional perspectives.
IV. Improve audio correction and restoration skills.
V. Develop target based production strategies.
VI. Attune to different technical conditions.
VII. Adjust to collective and individual workflows / schedules.
