In Recording Connection audio engineering school lesson 1: Introduction to sound and hearing, we will take a look at the physics of sound. We will understand how sound travels through air, how our ears receive sound, and how our brains interpret the sounds we are receiving. Understanding this will help us build a foundation for how we can manipulate audio and create an experience, balance, and blend with the instruments that we are mixing. The most important thing to remember is not to feel overwhelmed. It is not necessary to understand these concepts on a scientific or mathematical level your first time going through them. Allow yourself to evolve with the information you are studying. The more you study the information, the more you apply this material, the more things will start to make sense!
