Sometimes the hardest part of learning something new is just getting started. This one day 4-hour course will introduce you to editing in an audio software (DAW). Getting comfortable with a DAW is the first barrier to entry to creating beautiful audio stories. So don’t let it hold you back!
Over the course of 4-hours we will walk through the 10 fundamental skills of audio editing. We will navigate our way around our DAW and familiarize ourselves with its key features and how to use them. Some of the skills we will learn include starting a project, cutting, fading, volume adjustment, moving and copying tape, working with multiple tracks and more.
You will leave this course with a jumpstart on your audio editing learning and a confidence to continue to problem-solve with-in a DAW. I will also provide you with tools and resources you can take with you.
This course is an optional precursor to the 4-Week Course “Make Your First Audio Piece”. Student’s are welcome to take this course as a standalone as well, though they are encouraged to sign-up for the 4-week course in addition. We will be using Reaper (free-trial) for this course. However, the teaching will be DAW agnostic. All you will need for this course is a laptop.
