Pro Tools 12 & DAW Training*
We all want to record, mix, and produce quality audio ourselves these days, and affordable technology has given us the ability to do just that. However, the knowledge and skill it takes to really produce a polished quality recording in a digital audio workstation (DAW) like Pro Tools is where many aspiring musicians and producers fall short. From the largest recording facilities to the smallest bedroom studios, Pro Tools is the most popular and most versatile sound creation and production system in the world. For any artist, the key to a successful Pro Tools recording/mixing session is "not to let the technology get in the way of the art." How does one achieve this? Learn Pro Tools the right way!
I'll teach you everything I know about the art of music and/or post-production audio recording, editing and mixing. I own and have worked on multiple DAW platforms since the earliest days of digital audio (1989). Most of the knowledge you'll receive will be applicable to any platform out there. We will explore everything you need to know to create an amazing music or audio post project, including hardware and digital interface options, best practices, signal routing, fx and instrument plugins, recording and editing audio and midi data, mix configurations and templates, automation, printing/bouncing your mixes, file and data management, and much more. The best training is still hands-on with a professional at your side. Everything makes more sense this way. The satisfaction of getting immediate answers to your questions and having a professional to contact for support is invaluable.
You may bring your own laptop and interface if you need help learning to configure your hardware and software. After this course, you will have all the knowledge you need to record, edit and mix fantastic home recordings, podcasts, YouTube video soundtracks and more.
