The Pro Tools 110 was amazing. Alchemea is a fantastic college!! Aleksandra Giersz, Pro Tools 110, 2015
"Doing the technology courses (Pro Tools, Logic, Reason & Ableton) at Alchemea has sped up my learning curve immensely, and has been an invaluable experience. I feel a lot more confident with my studio skills and the production jobs are starting to pour in. (Oh yeah and the delis around the school are very nice as well)." http://web.mac.com/vigsound Marcelo Vig (session drummer, programmer, producer) (Patrick Wolf, Eminem, Avril Lavigne, Will Smith), Feedback for Various Short Courses: 2007
"Thanks for the great Pro Tools Expert and ICON training Neil, Justin and all at Alchemea. The family vibe is friendly and laid back but also intensive and very professional. I realised that to get on in the industry it was essential for me know Pro Tools inside out. Since gaining certification my confidence has grown and I have picked up lots of new work as a producer, programmer and pro tools operator (recently the live recording engineer for Daniel Powter, The Rasmus, Katy Perry & Eliseo Parra). Alchemea is for sure the best place to learn Pro Tools in Europe. Many thank and see you all again soon." www.myspace.com/saulsounddesign Saul Pariente (Producer Engineer), Pro Tools (Expert & ICON)
"I just wanted to write to you to say thanks for all this Pro Tools expert experience with you guys. (It was the most stressful experience of my life. jaja.) This was probably the most challenging goals I have set my self to achieve so far, and I'm pretty sure that what I have gained from this experience will be of great help in my developing career. Because of this, I just wanted to thank you all for helping me throughout this process. Good Luck and I'll see you soon!" Daniel Jaramillo (Pro Tools Music Expert / Freelance Audio Engineer), Pro Tools (Music & Post Expert & ICON)
"Needing to supply a Pro Tools 130 course for games for our clients at Plan Advanca in Spain, we naturally chose Alchemea as the best training centre in Europe for our needs. As always, the reception we received was extremely professional and hospitable. The course, delivered by the extremely knowledgable Neil Pickles was impeccable, and covered not only the PT 130 module itself, but also revealed insights into the programmes used, the application of the workflow and valuable information, ideas and experience on delivering the module ourselves. Although our class was made up of Pro Tools training partners with the same objective as myself and my partner Gonzalo Lasheras, I would highly recommend this course for anyone with an interest in Gaming Technology, or in furthering their knowledge of using Pro Tools for post production and cross media technology, and would highly recommend Alchemea as the place to gain a professional grounding in this subject. As a fully professional training centre, Alchemea will remain my point of reference for all my (and my company's) training needs. Thanks once again guys, keep up the good work! Barry Sage (Proaudiotec S.L. Spain), Pro Tools 130: 2010
Pro Tools 130 Game Audio is a very novel and unique course that should be taken by any sound designer/musician that is interested in understanding how to work with game audio. As lecturer, Pro Tools instructor and sound designer I saw a good opportunity to stretch my skill range and to introduce this, at university level, in my own country since I don't know any other Game Audio course out there that can be as challenging and engaging as this one. The information provided was spot on and the exercises that followed the instructor's presentation gave me a way to put into practice what I was being taught having Pro Tools as the main tool for the job. Overall I was very happy with the course! Ricardo Braganca (Lecturer, Sound Designer & Pro Tools Instructor, Portugal), Pro Tools 130: 2011
