not just a voiceover talent... You’re also a recording engineer... And often you are your own director.

Today, it’s more important than ever that you have the skills to record high-quality audio from your home studio - and that you have competent engineering skills and knowledge of exactly how your recording software and equipment works. This is what our “Mastering Audacity & Your Home Studio” full-day workshop is all about:

Part 1: Mastering Audacity
Guest Instructor: Barry Trussell
Saturday - 9am - 1pm

In the first section of this two-part workshop, you’ll begin by learning everything you need to know about how to use the free Audacity recording software. You’ll leave the class knowing how to:

  • download Audacity and the L.A.M.E. plug-in
  • set the software to recognize your equipment
  • connect your equipment to record your voice
  • record basic voice tracks
  • adjust your recording levels
  • edit your recordings
  • use essential effects and tools to optimize your recordings
  • save your recordings as MP3 files
  • deliver your audition or project recordings to their final destination.

Bring your laptop to get the most from this workshop!

If you have a laptop computer... bring it. We’ll have plenty of power outlets and Internet access for all who attend. Note: This workshop is presented with a video projection of Audacity, so everyone can see how it works. You do not need a laptop to benefit from this class and learn how to use Audacity.

1-hour lunch break from 1pm-2pm
