About Us

In 2011, two Pune-based recording engineers – Harshad Sathe and Ronak Runwal – planted their flag in the ever-expanding music community of their city. Gray Spark Audio, a haven for both, the sonic adventures of independent, alternative artists from the growing scene as well as commercial producers and musicians, is located on Baner Road.
Gray Spark Audio started as a recording studio with the goal of creating a space that could handle all ranges of projects and clients and has finally evolved into a recording complex comprising of 4 Studios!
The studio attracted a lot of newer engineers from various Audio schools and were again trained at our facility as Assistant and Associate Engineers; what struck us was that though these bright engineers were coming into the studio they lacked a sense of practical knowledge which in a field like this is a must. This is where the idea for Gray Spark Audio & Sound Engineering Academy was born.

With an eye on the growing talent, Gray Spark Audio aims to equip and mentor the audio professionals of tomorrow with specific courses designed around audio engineering and music production courses in Pune. That’s where the Gray Spark Audio & Sound Engineering Academy comes in.
Since its conception, our Academy has trained numerous Audio Professionals across sectors like Film, Music, Audio Electronics, Acoustics and many more. Our goal is to contribute to the ever growing community of Audio Professionals in this country one great student at a time. Over time, we’ve grown our team of music producers with students that we’ve trained at the Academy as well.

Our Certificate Course for Audio Engineering and Music Production is a 11 Module Course, where a handpicked batch of 25-30 students will receive an extensive introduction to the Gray Spark approach to sound. It’s not just ‘sit and learn’, but ‘get up and deliver’.

Totally! Music production is a legit skill with tons of opportunities. You might not hit superstar status, but there’s a whole bunch you can do. You can Teach music, become a studio audio engineer, a movie audio engineer, ghost producer, or make music for games. It’s a real job, and success is all about grabbing those opportunities in this ever-changing music scene.

There are definitely a lot of facilities available online that can help you teach yourself sound-engineering, and lots of tools to help practice it as well; but learning through a course will give you not only the facilities and the first hand experience, but also knowledgeable mentors that have a lot of contacts and experience to guide you personally. There are a lot of curated, in-depth, theoretical concepts and knowledge that are related to the different things that most self-taught people already do, that will help you understand the process much better, and hence give you much better results.

Mixing is like cooking; you work with individual tracks and instruments in a song, similar to how you work with different ingredients. You need to balance those ingredients, and you can use different tools and equipment that are there in the kitchen, just as you use plugins like EQs, compressors, saturators, multiband compressors, etc. to treat your tracks in a mix. Mastering is the final stage after your mix. Just as you do the final touches like garnishing your dish before sending it out, in a master, you take care of a variety of things like the spectral balance of your mix, the loudness of your mix and how your mix will translate in different systems like earphones, Bluetooth speakers, car speakers, etc.
