Cables & Connectors0:36
An introduction to the Cables & Connectors course.
What's on Your Cable?3:06
There are many different types of cables and connectors used in audio recording. Signals carried on these cables can be balanced, unbalanced, high impedance, low impedance, analog, digital, one channel, or many channels.
Balanced & Unbalanced Signals2:26
A standard mic cable considerably reduces this noise by using three separate methods for noise reduction, one of which is over 100 years old.
Analog & Digital Cables3:00
While mic and line level signals may use the same type of cable to get from here to there, in digital audio there is an entirely different set of cables, connectors, and requirements.
Bits, Bytes & More3:43
Digital audio is the most common format for recording and storage of sound in the modern studio.
Keeping it Neat1:47
Cables are a significant investment in your studio so it’s important to store and present them correctly during a session.
Time for Review1:14
A recap of some of the important concepts taught in the Cables & Connectors course.
Cables and connectors provide the pathways for audio signals to flow throughout the studio. Great connections can have a positive impact on not only the sound but also a creative difference in the recording process by maintaining the quality of the source and inspiring the performer.

A great sound starts with a quality signal chain. In this first installment of the Foundation Series, you will learn the basics of audio starting with the source, and then moving step by step down the line to the finished product.
Speakers, headphones, and In-Ear Monitors (IEMs) are transducers. Like all transducers, they change one form of energy into another. Learn the basics of transducer operation at the back end of the signal chain, where truth, or the lack of, can lead to consequences in the quality of your music.
To achieve great results when recording, processing, and mixing audio, it’s important to know the levels at which various pieces of musical and studio gear operate. This course digs deeper into the operational qualities of studio gear in the signal chain.
