Brad Cox Classes - Current Sessions

Welcome to Commercial Music: Audio Engineering, Audio for Video, MIDI, Live Sound, Synthesis and Electronics.

I know some of you want to be here while others of you HAVE to be here. I get it. No worries. I hope to make this as painless as possible while having fun and you might actually learn something while developing an appreciation for the skill set. If you are going to be in the music industry in any capacity, your ability to effectively communicate with the Audio Engineer is only CRITICAL or your project will be expensive... your call.
