Due to popular demand, students can now take a Point Blank Diploma course with an emphasis on live sound engineering skills. This is a growth area for the music industry as artists rely more on performance than record sales for income. The Music Production & Live Sound Engineering Diploma will give you the gig experience you need to break into the live music industry whilst also fully acquainting you with everything you need to know about the in-studio production and creative process. Classes take place at Point Blank's famous London HQ with special sessions also booked in at top London recording studios during the Sound Engineering module. The Live Sound module is hosted at top London venue the O2 Academy, Islington where you will start with the basics of signal flow on analogue desks, and quickly progress to using Waves Soundgrid system. This course is great preparation for the real thing: you'll be putting your skills to the test at two live shows at top London venues which have played host to the careers of Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes, Gossip and many others. If you want to become a music producer/live sound engineer, put yourself in the right place at the right time and enrol now. This Diploma is taught on either Logic Pro or Ableton Live depending on your preference.
