Sound design is one of the most influential ways to carve out a distinct sound. By sound design, we’re referring to building a one-of-a-kind sound through i) recording, ii) sampling, iii) processing, iv) mapping, and more. Great sound is what every great producer, artist, engineer, film composer and studio pro has in common.


  1. Watch and learn as RAC’s sound design experts walk you through recording live drums and creating a custom virtual drum kit from start to finish.
  2. Take a crack at the project yourself in RAC’s music computer lab.
  3. Take the project home to practice some of the approaches and techniques shared the workshop. We believe that practice makes perfect, and it doesn’t hurt to have an expert showing the tricks of the trade.
