BA (Hons) Sound Technology

The BA (Hons) Sound Technology course at LIPA prepares students to be multi-skilled and adaptable practitioners, providing training in recorded sound, live sound and postproduction.

Using industry-standard equipment and facilities, students learn how as well as why, in order to build a strong theoretical base which underpins intensive practical work.

During term-time, there is 24/7 access to six professionally designed studios built around SSL Duality, SSL AWS900SE, Yamaha DM2000, Icon and two Audient ASP8024 consoles, with multitrack recording via ProTools HDX & Native, iZ Radar and Otari 2” analogue tape. Outboard equipment combines the esoteric boutique with staple workhorses and continues its view to future developments.

Live sound is practised in venues of varying scales – from small gig venues, to LIPA’s main auditorium which seats over 400. Monitoring equipment includes Boxer, PMC, Genelec, Focal, Auratone, Dynaudio, K&H, DAS, ATC and Yamaha speakers.

Sound Technology students at LIPA train to make performance possible alongside those from other disciplines such as Acting, Dance, Music, Design and Management, to develop their understanding of the industry and gain valuable experience of interdisciplinary, creative work. Graduates from the course are working at the highest levels in recording studio engineering and production, live sound and theatre sound design, audio systems design, broadcast engineering, audio mastering, sound for film and television, computer game audio, etc. Many have set up their own successful companies.
