  • Audio Editing in Audacity

    December 17, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

    Description

    Learn how to cut out mistakes, make smooth transitions between clips, layer audio elements into your recordings, and use advanced effects with this 2-hour crash course focusing on Audacity, the free audio editor.

    Audacity is a powerful tool, available as a free download, that lets you edit recorded clips, apply effects, and blend multiple recordings like sound effects, music, and vocals to create a professional-sounding production that excites the senses. And it's remarkably simple. If you've used a word processor before, then you can use Audacity.

    Bring your own computer and headphones to get the full, hands-on, troubleshooting experience.

    Here's what we'll be doing:

    • Installing and configuring Audacity
    • Importing audio recordings
    • Cutting and combining audio clips
    • Adjusting track volumes and fading between clips
    • Looking a track spectrograms (and explaining what that means)
    • Muting and solo-ing tracks
    • Using effects like normalizing, truncate silence, compression
    • Becoming an audio editing wizard using key commands
    • Completing an applied practice assignment with vocals, music, and sound effects

    Cost: $15

    Email info@ptbopodcasters.ca to register.

    Register before Dec. 6 so we can reach our minimum enrollment numbers to go ahead.
