** This site is in the midst of MAJOR updates including new units, new videos, and new features. Some of the current videos are low resolution or feature older software (this site has been up for 18 years) and although the content is still valid it is time to for an upgrade. All changes should be finished late Fall 2018.
Once upon a time, Audio Engineers learned their craft while working for years in studios, observing and learning from experienced Engineers, Producers, Musicians, and Technicians. These days most of the major commercial studios have closed and it is very difficult to get an opportunity to make coffee in a real studio, much less get into sessions. Add today's easy-to-afford software with easy-to-use presets and there is even less reason to actually have to learn anything about Audio Engineering other than avoiding distortion.
The BAM Audio Course is a free online Audio Course intended to save the “art” of Audio Engineering from becoming another victim in a point-and-click world. Preset sounds and settings are convenient and easy but rarely give results beyond “good enough”. Judging from the popular opinion that most of today’s music feels and sounds inferior to older music, perhaps “good enough” simply ISN’T.
The course is to include text "lectures", audio files, and video clips from myself and other Engineers, Producers, Musicians and Studio Managers. The material provided here is not intended to take the place of hands-on training at a school or as a studio intern, but I certainly hope that at the very least it will show people something about how the ART of Audio Engineering can improve the ART of music on many levels.
