Before The Venture Posted on 2016-01-28 by Nathan Jones

I have completed reading the inductionary portions of my Active Textbook and I'm ready to begin my journey into the world of professional audio engineering. At first I figured I'd give RRFC a go because it appealed to me as an economically sound alternative to a university for getting some valuable knowedge under my belt. I quickly realized however that this course has the potential to be something far more significant to my future (I cannot say for certain at this point as I had just begun). To give you an idea of where I currently stand before diving into a single chapter: I have been recording, mixing and mastering tracks for myself and friends for the better part of 4 years now and I've been a music buff for far longer than that. I have my own formula and methodology for bringing ideas into this world as works of art as I imagine any self-taught individual probably would and I'm eager to finally work with industrial-grade equipment in a professional environment.

I plan on becoming a full-time audio engineer within the next 2 years following my admittance into RRFC. I also plan to kick off my career as an artist in the Hip-Hop industry as a side project. I am fortunate to have stumbled upon RRFC as a doorway into my dream career by running through my Facebook feed oddly enough one day. I am a fairly logical person so I presume it to be lucky chance though even I am inclined to believe that higher powers are at work here. I plan on keeping a rather detailed account of my experiences throughout this course from the eBook, to the studio and beyond, as a testament to the quality of education that this course has provided me as well as maybe a few good tips and tricks others may find handy with their craft.

I look forward to everything RRFC has to throw at me and I'm determinded to break into the industry at whatever the cost. I would also like to thank the staff of RRFC in advance for working with me patiently to make this opportunity a reality, I really owe you guys!

Chapter 1: Sound and HearingPosted by Nathan Jones on 2016-02-02

Due to technical difficulties, I have finished Chapter 1 of my Active Textbook before my first studio session. This is fine however because there will be no shortages of elaborated details on my studies! This chapter has already set me on the right path, I can feel it... Read More >>
