See what our past students say

  • Stephen O Neill (Audio Autopsy Records)

    As a past pupil of Real Sound Dublin I can’t recommend the course enough. Eoin and Doug covered everything needed to get up and running with Ableton and were always there to give a hand after the course if I was stuck. I came out fully satisfied with my ability and overall experience.

  • Andrew Johnston (Housework, Breakfast Club)

    The lads were a big help, from the obvious things like mixing records to the small but important aspects such as levels and connections. over the last year I have achieved more than I would have thought I could in 1 year considering I couldnt mix two tracks when I started the course.

  • Dave Redmond (Nightflight)

    Real Sound is a comfortable learning environment with excellent tutors. It’s always important to be able to ask questions openly and with Real Sound you can certainly do this. Its a fantasic idea that offers face to face education for a broad range of programs. Two thumbs up!
