Course Description

An online course teaching how to edit audio, manage files and sync audio recordings. Suitable for complete beginners and experienced audio editors this course is designed to help you finish your projects much faster and to help you collaborate with other people or other music production softwares with easy to understand explanations and worksheets. This course is not related to mixing or mastering so there will be no plugins to worry about but you will develop powerful habits, clean organisation skills and build solid foundations.

Suited for bedroom or studio music producers, editing voice over recordings for an app, scoring sound for a film, syncing multi track audio recordings from a live show, band rehearsal recordings, album recordings, orchestra recordings, getting  drum kit sounds to sync well, transferring audio files between 2 different digital audio workstations or basically managing any type of audio at all.  


The course will use both Ableton Live 10 and Logic Pro X to edit instrument recordings from a funky dance song called “Funky Dance Moves” by world music band Mantravine.  You will learn to build a reusable template, essential key commands, learn clean editing and organisation of audio files, learn the different ways to combine audio, sync melodies and transfer recordings to other softwares. Theoretically the concepts are universal and should work for any professional DAW that has similar levels of functionality to Ableton & Logic. So if you use a different DAW you may have to google or youtube some of the processes. 


To enjoy maximum benefit either open up an existing music project that has audio recordings or start a new one and record audio of a few instruments layering harmonies or rhythms on top of each other. With your recordings ready, take the course and immediately after each lesson try to apply the concepts learned on your existing project.
