10 Signs You Studied Music Technology In College!

Recording engineers, mixing engineer's and anyone else who studied Music Technology / Music Recording in a university or trade school atmosphere all have a few things in common. In our next edition of the audio blog instead of giving you the ins and outs on the Top 10 Skills  Audio Engineer Students MUST HAVE, or testing your microphone knowledge of some of music's biggest stars, we thought we'd make an awesome list of 10 of the most common things audio engineer students go through while studying the trade. Whether attending a 4 year university program, or just a trade school, you'll remember many of these things during your time studying audio engineering. If you haven't yet enrolled in a program, we hope this list sheds some light on things you might experience, and if you have already completed your training you'll probably laugh and nod in agreement with many of the items on our list. If you happen to know of any others we didn't mention, let us know in the forum!
