What software do I need to take the Music Production Certificate Program?
SoundBridge Academy uses Ableton Live as its primary DAW, however, our education is designed to be software-agnostic. The concepts taught consist of advanced techniques that can be transcribed to any major software platform. We always try to offer a recap of the procedures executed in alternative software platforms such as Studio One, FL Studio, Cubase, Logic, and SoundBridge.
Our courses are designed to ensure you acquire the knowledge needed to be able to turn your ideas into reality using any free or paid DAW, as well as any native, free or paid plugins out there. We teach you how to fish; it is your choice if you fish with a titanium rod or a broomstick.
If you don't have a preferred software, we recommend trying the SoundBridge.io Digital Audio Workstation, which is completely free.
What equipment do I need to take the course?
Studio Monitors and a MIDI Controller are recommended but not required.
If you have a Windows computer, we highly suggest purchasing an external USB soundcard with an ASIO low-latency/high-fidelity audio driver and a pair of studio headphones. You can use your computer’s soundcard for low-latency playback by installing ASIO4ALL.
Modern-day Mac computers come with a stock low-latency/high-fidelity audio driver called CoreAudio and a suitable high-quality soundcard built-in.
How long is the Music Production Certificate?
Our Music Production Certificate includes over 80 hours of high quality video lessons. Once you enroll, you will get lifetime access to the courses and there is no structured timeframe so you can go at your own pace. Most students complete our 6 courses in aproximately 12 months.
