Your career in live sound is just 11 months away. Be thoroughly prepared to enter the world of audio production, certified and confident in your skills with the CRAS Master Recording Program II.

Live Sound is its own unique beast. People who love live sound are attracted by the immediacy and adrenalin of that one shot to get it right, right there on the spot! When you’re at the controls of a “front of house” mix, there can be 20,000 or more people listening to your “product” as you create it. The CRAS Master Recording Program II includes a live sound curriculum covering all the bases from theory to setup, analog and digital mixing, signal processing, “rules of the road” and more.

CRAS has its own 6,000 sq ft live sound stage and venue because like all CRAS classes, the theory and the practical are one.
