The first time you open a Digital Audio Workspace (basically an audio editing program) it can seem daunting.
Watching video tutorials and reading manuals are all well and good, but before you start out, wouldn’t you like someone to go through all the basics with you?
– Where should I start?
– What are the steps I need to go to record and edit a podcast?
– How do I make it sound good?
– What are levels?
– What are best practices for editing your podcast so it sounds good?
– What is that little button on the far right for???
This hands-on workshop will give you an understanding of how to approach making a podcast without being a sound engineer and leave you with the confidence to try on your own.
