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...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 will 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.

As a Recording and Mixing Engineer since 1984, Bruce A Miller has earned dozens of International awards for his work on Gold, Platinum and Grammy winning records in every music style.
