Audio Editing with Adobe Audition (Weekend)
This course will introduce participants to working in digital audio; beginning with recording and importing audio files to mastering and exporting for different presentation formats. We will cover basic editing and mixing, while looking into some of the available effects and audio manipulation techniques.
While Adobe Audition will be the software focused on for this course, many of the principals and techniques can be applied to alternative Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) such as ProTools, Reaper, Logic Pro, Studio One and more. Included will be a brief introduction to these other DAWs available to suit a range of budgets.
- Overview of hardware and software
- Recording, editing and mixing
- Working with video and transfer between applications
Students will take a practical understanding of audio post-production for a variety of purposes (e.g. audio for film & video, music production, sound design).
Who should take this course
Anyone interested in digital audio post-production.
There are no pre-requisites, although there will be a short section on working with video so some understanding in this area may be beneficial.
Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older
