Course Description

Processing sound is key for a successful music production release or broadcast. The quality of the sound can be increased by every correct decision in the digital signal chain. This course teaches advanced concepts and skills in musical post-production using the state-of-art digital audio workstation (DAW) software.  Later stages of music production such as advanced editing and advanced mixing are the main focal points here. The course includes training in Pro Tools systems, but the skills and principles are applicable in a range of applications and further DAW software.
