In this latest video of the "How To" series, Jason de Wilde from the Australian Institute of Music demonstrates recording an electric guitar with a single microphone. By positioning the mic in different locations around the speaker cabinet, you can achieve vastly different sounds. The mic position acts like an EQ (equaliser) and you can achieve the correct balance of highs, mids and lows just by moving the mic a few inches.
This video is best listened to by using headphones.

Audio @ Aim
The Bachelor of Music (Audio Technology) is a thorough and complete study of sound engineering and music technology. Throughout all stages of the course students are taught theoretical concepts which are supported with practical audio classes. Students will learn to collaborate with other other AIM students including composers, musicians, performers and actors to complete major projects. Students have access to our state of the art recording studios to complete their assessments. They also have opportunities to work on the many additional recording projects such as the Best of AIM CD which is produced each year. Students further their musical knowledge and skills with practical and theoretical units. Students who want to focus on technical production skills should choose the Audio Major. Associate study options enable all audio students to either specialise or broaden their study program.
