Music Production

"In the music projects of the twenty-first century the traditional roles of songwriter, composer, arranger, musician, musical director, producer, recording technician, mixing engineer and mastering engineer are increasingly blurred.  When you take music production modules as part of our courses, you will be the multi-talented musician and engineer that drives the music creative process, in and out of the studio”. [Diego Garro - Director of Music Production at Keele University]

The production of various styles of popular and experimental music has been historically an integral part of the Music Department activities. The recording and editing platforms are fully equipped with hardware and software for recording, audio editing, sound processing, multi-tracking and mastering. The recording studios are based on state of the art DAWs, Tascam DM-4800 digital mixing desks and host a collection of professional-quality microphones for all your recording needs.
