Diploma In Studio Sound Engineering

(6 Months) – Rs. 1,70,000 with Steinberg and Protools Certification

If you are totally in love with Music & are a perfectionist by nature, who enjoys working in a professional studio, then Sound Engineering is a perfect career path for you.

The responsibility of a Sound Engineer is to make regular songs sound great. They work with the technical aspects of sound, during recording, mixing, and reproduction. Sound Engineers often assist, record producers and musicians to help give their work the sound they are hoping to achieve. They can piece together parts of a song, use auto-tune on a recording, and/or add synthetic sounds to a track. If you are inclined towards sound production and want to build a career in Audio Post Production, then Mumbai Music Institute is the place for you!

We believe that, If you want to excel in the art of Sound Engineering it is essential to undergo rigorous training and gain in-depth knowledge about the creative and technical aspects of Sound process along with technical proficiency of major sound equipment used in the field of music such as amplifiers, audio lines, microphones along with the imparting an excellent understanding of sound mixing and recording technology.

MMI uses the most contemporary and revolutionary advancement in sound recording and mixing during the duration of the course. MMI is also a proud partner with Steinberg, for providing a certified training for Nuendo and Cubase. We believe that educating students about the core skills is most essential, while incorporating new technologies. The result of evolving this curriculum over the years, equipped our students to face all the requirements demanded by the Music Industry & kick started their career in the beautiful world of creating Music.
