Point Blank courses are designed to help you create your own signature sound and this Award is no exception. This three month program is for more advanced users and takes you on a journey into sound design and mixing, two key components to finding your own voice in music production. Taught in intimate groups with two full lectures days per week (11am-6pm), you'll learn how to use Ableton in advanced and creative ways to further enhance your sound design techniques and mixing abilities. Each workstation includes a Push controller, Ableton Live, Native Instruments Komplete, Kontrol 49 and Output's excellent REV. With experienced and friendly West Coast Point Blank staff, class sizes are strictly limited so early booking is strongly advised. This course is also available in the evenings, please contact a Course Advisor for more information.
