I cant exactly go home and use pro-tools like......

Either way, the mastering techniques will be beneficial, and all the other theory aspects of the course........

Well I missed all the shenanigans there, and some of you missed registration lastnight. I could maybe take on one more person, that'd bring us up to 20.

The course is by no means Pro Tools centred. In fact, it's a minor part of the course and will just be used as an example of a DAW and what can be achieved "in the box". To achieve certification 60% of the marks are going for producing a multitracked arrangement of sufficient complexity to flex your engineering muscles, and properly mastered on CD. You can record that on any medium you wish.

By the way, Pro Tools is not the "musician's DAW", Cubase and Logic are really. Pro Tools is the one with the greatest market penetration in the industry so it is something of a "standard", and the most logical user interface, and quite likely the most stable of the three. There are many others- Reaper has an amazing spec, and is really cheap.

To go further your best options are:
1. Start your own business- freelance engineering, live or studio. But it's tough out there. The music industry is very small here.
2. Do a tonmeister course, UK or Germany, and work on the continent.
3. Do an electronics (NOT computers) course of some kind, as an add on qualification.
