  • The C. R. S. Instructors October 8 & 9th, 2021

  • Wade Nichols owns Starsound Studios and its YouTube channel. Early in his music career, he ran live sound for national recording artists, live theater, and local bands. He also wrote three albums which garnered airplay on local Milwaukee radio.

    Wade started Starsound in 1993 and relocated it to his hometown in Northeast Ohio in 2001. Tiffin University accredits Wade for their recording internship program serving as a mentor.  This melds perfectly with being an elementary school teacher.

    Wade is also a multi-instrumentalist and rock vocalist.  He formed Rock Rewind and served as its guitarist and vocalist.  Being on both sides of the recording glass gives him a unique perspective when helping other artists find their voice and vision.

  • Industry Learning In The Past

    How potential audio engineers learned in the past is by being an intern at a recording studio. That internship was cleaning the studio and not having anything to do with music for a long while. Then slowly, the intern is introduced to the process by other engineers of that studio. That consisted of sitting in the room and not speaking or touching anything and would go on for months. When you were deemed ready, you could work on non-crucial music. Eventually, if you would last, you worked on more and more songs until you were one of the engineers of that studio.

    Our masterclass puts you in an actual recording situation and teaches you how the top people in the industry work without scrubbing the floor; unless you want to clean floors. Come and learn from the very best. Our instructors answer all questions and share their insights and trade secrets that made them highly successful. That knowledge is invaluable. Come find out why our instructors are the industry's finest.
