- OC Recording's In The Studio with Asaf Fulks program gave me exactly what I was looking for! The course took me through every aspect of the process of making music from the bottom up. The one on one sessions were extremely helpful and the book explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn audio engineering and music production.

Shouts to legend himselfAsaf Fulks on releasing his first Solo debut Album "OC EXPRESS" ... don't miss the train hop on this project and give it a listen and a share! Lot of hard work, time and dedication was shed to make this album. Asaf is my teacher/homie/mentor and is always going above his Plateau. Nothing but bangers
Couldn't be happier with the The OC Recording School with Asaf Fulks! Asaf does a great job in providing you with the tools & fundamentals that you need to get to the next level as a music producer and audio engineer.
I attended the OC Recording School for audio engineering. Asaf is a great guy and a very talented engineer. This is by far the best place in Orange County to learn digital audio production and recording/mixing techniques. After completing the course I have walked away a much better musician and engineer! Thanks Asaf!

-A great atmosphere with hands on experience with mix master Asaf. If your in Oc and you're looking to record look no further. Everything you could look for and more.
Asaf is a great mentor. He gives out helpful tips and suggestions. Very cool and relax. You'll come across different people and artists in the studio. I learned a lot with the hands-on lessons, understanding how to structure my beats and how unique sound is. Thanks Asaf! The OC Recording Company is definitely the place to go to if you want to learn about music producing in Orange County!
Being completely honest, I truly am blown away by this opportunity and how much I have learned. I have never been the best student so at times all the reading was hard to completely retain but being able to have the hands on experience in the studio made everything a lot less overwhelming and much easier to understand. The most important part in terms of my learning was going over the quizzes with my mentor Asaf Fulks. He would go through every question and would not move on until he is 100% confident that I knew the material well. He sets the perfect example for how we are to act and behave in the studio. Everyday is a lesson when observing the way he does things. He knows all the tricks and always has something to show me that can blow my mind and open up another door for me to get lost in. I truly do not think there was anymore that could have been done in the first half to help me learn. I am very happy with how much I have learned and am very excited to continue on to the second half of this awesome program. Working with Asaf has truly been an unreal experience.

I was looking for an audio school to jumpstart my career in sound engineering, but
all the schools I found didn’t fit into my budget and time. The OC Recording School
did! Since my first informal meeting with Asaf, I knew this was the place for me. Asaf
is a master at what he does. The OC Recording School has three studios and all the
gear you need to make Pro quality music. The “hands on” lessons with Eric Sheffield
were super fun and extraordinarily productive. The textbook is straight to the point. I
couldn’t have been happier with the results from the program and my audio career
is on track to take off. All I can say is ‘Thank You’ OC Recording School and Asaf Fulks
for providing me all the tools to start and advance in my career.

In pursuing my goal of becoming a Certified Audio Engineer, I had the pleasure of
being mentored by Asaf Fulks at The OC Recording School. Asaf is THE top Producer/
Engineer in Orange County and an excellent instructor. With his hands-on approach

work with numerous recording artists and even worked on a movie score. If you are
pursuing a career in the music industry as a recording engineer, there is no better
place than with Asaf Fulks at The OC Recording Company.

understandable by showing me how to do the lesson hands on. He made learning the ropes easy!
I'll always value the skills I learned at OC Recording and they'll help me in my future career.
I was a client at the OC Recording Company when Asaf told me about his school. I had always thought that it would be too difficult to be an artist as well as an engineer, until Asaf took me under his wing. From Music Theory to full-fledged mixing and mastering, Asaf made it easy for me to understand. The textbook, "In The Studio" written by Asaf Fulks, provides substantial amount of information for any student to continually perfect their craft in becoming a professional audio engineer. The atmosphere at the OC Recording School is relaxing and gives off an amazing burst of energy to create! The state-of-the-art equipment provided, allows me to have no limitations! Many thanks to Asaf and the OCRS family for opening new doors in my future career!

When I enrolled at The OC Recording School with Asaf Fulks, I didn't know much about music except for Djing and mixing audio and sound effects for movies, I came out knowing Pro Tools, mixing and mastering. It helped me not only in the audio world, but also the film world. Asaf changed my life and I'm very thankful to have had such an amazing person as my advisor. It's amazing how he takes the time to have one-on-one sessions with you and always invites you to his pro sessions to watch and learn. He will let you in the studio whenever you want to work or to watch and learn. I have never had a learning experience like I had with Asaf at OC Recording School. If you are looking for a place that is focused on what you want to learn OC Recording is where to go! No hurried teachers or big class of students. you are in a real working studio with Asaf Fulks and real working professionals in the industry learning and working beside them. You can not get this type of learning experience out of any Youtube Video, Book or Class.
I enrolled in Asaf Fulks In The Studio program at The OC Recording Company in Santa Ana, CA., in early 2014. I'd like to say, I am here in my own studio today using what I have learned from Asaf, the man with the twiddling fingers, turning those knobs to get the last ounce of perfect audio; the man with the ears of a bat, listening to every last nuance, because anything less then a 100% mix just would not do for this Supreme Producer! Asaf, saying thank you is not appreciative enough for what you have done for me, the time you have spent with me, and all of the knowledge you have given me. Thank you so much!
There just isn't anything quite like the hands-on-experience of The OC Recording Company's audio engineering program! The course literally covers everything you can think of, and Asaf and his team are always there to help and answer any questions you may have. For me, there was something so fascinating about coming to school and being in a professional recording studio for every lesson. I learned so much more here at such a faster pace than I ever thought possible. But the best part of it all was how I made friends with like-minded people, who were all on the same page as I was, and who had similar goals in mind. I wouldn't be lying if I told you that The OC Recording Company changed my life.

As a student at OC Recording School I was extremely impressed with Asaf Fulks mentoring, with the state-of-the-art recording equipment and the one-on-one lessons. Every studio session was A-1. I improved my skills and techniques and I left The OC Recording School an extremely blessed audio engineer/artist.

The OC Recording School is a great place to get a hands-on education in audio engineering and music production. Asaf Fulks is a true talented professionals. They taught me everything I needed to know to become confident and successful in the industry. I practiced with top-of-the-line recording equipment that is used by today's famous recording artists, which made me feel like a pro. Thanks OC Recording School for great education!
Before going to The OC Recording School, my knowledge of audio production/engineering was minimal. From the first day I stepped into the studio, I instantly knew it I was in the right place. The creator of the program and master engineer of the studio, Asaf Fulks, was one of the most helpful people in my journey. He always made sure I completely mastered every chapter before moving to the next. At the beginning of each session he would review the previous chapter to make sure I had it all set in stone. He encouraged me to come to the studio as much as I could and to keep practicing and mastering my art, which in my opinion, makes The OC Recording School stand out. If you're a complete beginner, or even an intermediate producer/engineer, there's always something you can improve on by going to The OC Recording School. Along with the good mentorship, the people at the studio are most helpful, from giving constructive criticism to collaborations on projects. All in all, The OC Recording School gets a 10/10! I recommend it to anyone who is interest in audio production/engineering. It would be well worth your time!
As I looked around Orange County and Los Angeles for a hands-on experience as an engineer in a recording studio, a friend told me about The OC Recording School. I was interested because it offered a one-on-on experience and a flexible schedule in a real studio (not some class with 30 students 1 teacher). Learning with The Great Producer, Asaf Fulks, was a great experience. Both taught me a lot. It was very valuable to stay after the lessons and to work with other producers who are building their career. The vibe/feel at the OC Recording Company is fantastic--can't beat it! Asaf is a great mentor and knows what he is doing and talking about when it comes to mixing, mastering, producing, instrumentals or anything studio! He is an awesome mentor, he gives you the push to go harder, to go in on your music and not quit, I highly recommend Asaf's teaching capabilities and The OCRC. If you want work in a recording studio as a career, you have to start at OC Recording School. Thanks to Asaf, OCRC for my first step in the industry/business.
During my time at the OC Recording School I used world-class recording and mixing equipment and learned from knowledgeable staff. It was a valuable experience of hands-on learning. The environment at the OC Recording School allowed me to immerse myself into a world of creativity with a plethora of creative minds to collaborate with. I've never felt so welcome in any educational or musical environment! Asaf Fulks is an extremely talented individual, not only as educator, but as an engineer and musician as well. I recommend any and all individuals interested in taking their knowledge of the audio engineering arts to the next level to check out The OC Recording School!
Working in the studio with Asaf has been a priceless experience. Now, I'm working in the field & it's a dream come true! Thank you OC Recording for all your help.
Asaf, you showed me something that I was so impressed about working that maschine. That's what I want do!! For the first time in years I have something to look forward to waking in morning and to be apart of something!!! I'm a night owl big time!!! I'm in bed for the first time before 12am!!!!
Asaf, you are the best mentor ever!
Asaf Fulks, did you know that you ROCK?!?!?!!?? You changed my direction like a fresh gust of wind in my sails, and whatever I may achieve in/with music, it's your fault! Love you brother!
Asaf - The true master of mastering!
