"I had always hated being in school because of the minimal attention to the student and more busy work then information pertaining to the actual field. From the first day stepping into the class at Indigital I received one on one attention. The curriculum was based on what an audio engineer in a real live setting would need to know and be able to execute. Everything from the first lesson to the last was well organized and clearly explained. Any questions were answered in depth, until I fully comprehended the answer. The studio itself is too of the line and I was hands on almost every lesson. Brody was my instructor and he was the best. Extremely knowledgable, an amazing engineer himself, and ended up being an even more amazing boss! After working at the studio I continued to work in other studios and met many engineers who finished four year universities. In turn I had more knowledge and most important hands on experience then they did after finishing school. If you want to be in the audio engineering field, you may look no further for a school."
"The Indigital Recording/Mix and Mastering program offered by the instructor is nothing short of spectacular. The instructor was a considerate, patient, and extremely driven person, with more knowledge to offer than I ever imagined. A true hands on experience, in the business of the real world setting. As opposed to large classrooms in a university. The knowledge that is gained throughout this program is directly flipped around and applied in a studio setting, which has pushed me forward with an intensity. You can expect nothing but top-of-line gear, a professional and motivating atmosphere, an extensive curriculum, And a teacher that simply wants to pass down any and all the experience he can. Overall this is an opportunity of true substance for anyone who desires it, and comes highly recommended by me.
Nothing but the best from Indigital!"
"As a musician I have either played with or opened up for many big names in Rock and Roll; The Tubes, Quiet Riot, War, Cheap Trick, Chris Issak among others; and I’ve spent hours in studios here and abroad not really paying attention to what was going on during mixdown, or what it takes to make the song ‘pop’. Once I started getting into production, I knew I was in over my head. After speaking with former student Elina Bass, I then decided to contact Brody Bergholz at Indigital and I can say he literally changed my life.
The depth of detail in the lesson plan and what it takes to be a good mix engineer is demonstrated by the instructor and his love of all kinds of music and his desire for all students to learn ‘how the pros do it’ is evident in his teaching style and the studio itself. A professional domain for those who really want to take their mixing and/or production skills to the next level, Indigital does just that. I wholeheartedly recommend this school to anyone who is serious about music, especially the recording side of the coin; and let Indigital open your mind to making your music sound like the pros.
"Indigital Studios is the place to be! As a musician and a student I can truly say that the instructor had a super-human knowledge of music. He was a genius with the mix board and a wizard with Pro-Tools. If your a Musician looking for Profession Recording/Mixing/Mastering or a Student looking to become a producer yourself, go no further than Indigital. It is the Definition of professionalism and Skill. Indigital Studios Gets mad Props."
