Self-Production for Bassists: Where Technology Meets Creativity

Course Number
ILBS-248
Description

This lab prepares the Berklee bass student to record themselves and deliver studio-quality performances to clients anywhere in the world. Increasingly, bassists are expected to work remotely with producers---they find jobs online, are sent project files, record and edit their own parts, and deliver high quality recordings---all from their home studio. To stay competitive in this environment a contemporary bassist must master the interpersonal and technical challenges of remote collaboration. Weekly assignments and in-class activities give the student the experience of working with producers to develop the perfect tone and performance for a project, then performing, recording, editing, processing, and delivering on a tight deadline. Topics include effective communication, remote collaboration, mic placement, recording equipment, performance techniques, DAW configuration, editing, sound processing, and preparing deliverables.
