One of the most popular and effective ways to increase your skills or to learn new ones is through instructional videos and DVDs. Video provides a great learning platform because it incorporates multiple modes of learning at the same time. All of us possess a unique combination of visual, aural, and tactile learning ability. Videos and DVDs bring in all three of those elements as you watch what the instructor is doing, hear them explain the concepts, and play or learn along with the videos and exercise files. We carry an extensive selection of DVDs as well as memberships to tutorial sites offering hundreds of hours of videos by top professionals and legends in the music industry. These are people who do this for a living, showing you how it's done.
One of our favorite topics for video-based learning are skills related to production and recording. These are taught by some of the top names in the industry. You get to watch as they set up a recording or mixing session. They'll show you how adding various effects changes the mix, and you can hear the difference. Many of these packages also include DAW files and stems so you can actually mix along with them, making the adjustments yourself on your system. It's an incredibly powerful way to get hands on experience. We carry DVDs on recording, mixing and producing, as well as subscriptions for access to huge troves of online tutorials from the top recordists and mixers in the business.
How about videos on live sound engineering and digital performance? Get deep into mixing technique and industry standard sound reinforcement concepts. These skills allow you to translate and apply your new knowledge to any music venue or live sound situation you find yourself in. You'll also find this information helpful whenever you purchase or upgrade your live sound PA system.
One of the offerings we're most proud of is our own Sweetwater-branded DVD sets. We've partnered with legendary performers and producers to put together some truly amazing instructional videos on DVD. These multi-disk sets take you through every facet of the topic, going deep into into the details along the way. We basically created the instructional DVD we would want to learn from ourselves. We also offer our DVD sets bundled with a companion book.
When you've got a skill you want to master, videos are an effective and economical way to learn. Many of our DVDs are tailored to specific genres, such as country music, or sound manipulation concepts, like subtractive synthesis. If you have a specific topic that you're interested in, give us a call. We are lifelong learners ourselves! Our friendly Sales Engineers would love to talk with you about what you're interested in and recommend some great titles, or online resources to help get you on your way. We believe learning should be an ongoing process and we strive to keep our selections fresh and relevant. Once you try instructional videos and DVDs, you'll be hooked just like we are.
