Chapter 11 Midterm Posted on 2015-10-29 by Charlie Griggs

I just finished taking my midterm; aced it, woohoo! :) So far I've really enjoyed the whole course, from the way the lessons are laid out, to the multimedia aspects of the textbook and the comments that other students have added. I'm really excited about opening up the job placement aspect of the program so I can make some further decisions as to how best to move forward. 

The most recent studio session was finishing up mixes on two songs for a previous client; the tracks consisted of two vocalists and an assortment of MIDI instruments (drums, piano, bass, strings, and an accordion). It was a good exercise in using plugins to soften some of the harsher aspects of MIDI instruments and get a more realistic sound. Now I'm looking forward to finishing up the other big mix of real instrumentation we've been working on!
