In this course, students will learn how to use technology as an extension of their instrument in a solo setting. In-depth presentations and hands-on interaction with a wide variety of FX pedals are combined with required weekly lab use to provide students with an extensive survey of sonic possibilities. Students learn to use preamps, equalizers, harmonizers, delay, reverb, envelope filter, chorus, phasers, and compressors in coordination with a loop station culminating in a solo performance as the class’s final. Various assignments and projects along the way will help refine students' visions for the final exam.
