Where can you get trained?

If you're interested in training as an audio designer, it's important to first explore the available educational programs. Unlike the formalized dual training of a sound technician, the path to becoming an audio designer isn't legally standardized. There are various educational routes, some of which may be fee-based.

Training overview:

During your training as an audio designer, you'll engage in tasks such as creating utility music and jingles for films, websites, and commercials. The audio designer role encompasses two distinct elements: the practical and commercial aspects, alongside a deeply artistic component. If your inclination is more towards creative expression and less towards the commercial side, you’ll find the perfect environment to unleash your creativity, particularly in the fields of theater and film.

What do you need to bring to the table?

If you have a penchant for technology and love creating sounds, a career in audio design might be the perfect fit for you. This role lets you fully indulge in your interest in sound design and music production. Plus, if you enjoy interacting with people and satisfying customer needs, this career path is likely a great match for you.

Where can you work?

Your workplace will mainly be a computer in a recording studio. You will preferably find work in companies in the film industry, production companies for radio and television programmes, advertising, internet and multimedia agencies, concert organisers and music publishers, and publishers of software such as music software.
