Cool Math in Production

I am very interested in studying (and hopefully working in) music production. I just finished my freshmen year at Simon’s Rock College of Bard (the only early college in America) and plan on transferring to a school with a strong music technology/industry department. My main focus of interest is applying math and physics to recording/producing of sound/music. I hope that you can help me by telling first off exactly how much math/physics is/can be involved in professional production. Also, I would like to know which courses I should take in order to prepare myself for transferring into an intensive program.

Sounds like acoustics would be a good direction for you. A good combo of math, physics, and aesthetics, with a healthy dose of mystery for good measure.

To actually work in production these days, little math is required. The computers and studio designers take care of most of that for you.

All you need is a good ear and a bit of a sense of art.

If you want to design speakers, studios, or set up live audio, then you'll need a solid understanding of basic math and acoustics.

Wave theory, conservation of energy, complex math (a+jb).....
