Audio Masterclass Digital Audio Workstation Course

Enrolling now. Course opens Monday November 19.

This course covers operations that are commonly performed in all digital audio workstation (DAW) softwares. The course is not DAW-specific - the techniques covered can be applied to any DAW.

IMPORTANT: This course is not a substitute for the manual that came with your DAW or is available from the developer online. You must have access to this material to benefit from this course.

The course includes full access to the course materials of Module 6 of the Audio Masterclass Music Production and Sound Engineering Course on Recording Software, which provide a firm foundation for further progress.

The course then adds twelve practical assignment projects covering topics from simple editing, fading and crossfading, all the way through to professional-standard speech and music editing and vocal compiling.

The techniques covered are essential for anyone wishing to work to a professional standard in their own home or project studio.

Focus on the DAW

This course focuses on the operations of the digital audio workstation itself. It does not cover plug-ins, although the use of plug-ins as insert and bus processes is included.

Commitment required

This is not a course for anyone who is not fully committed to their craft. The practical assignment projects are not excessively difficult, but they are detailed and require painstaking attention to detail, and the persistence to carry out repetitive tasks all the way through to the end to a high level of quality. This is similar to professional work which is carefully paced, methodical, with a careful eye for detail and precision.

Assignment content

The course contains the following topics as practical assignment projects, of which there are twelve in total (as all of our courses are subject to continuous improvement we reserve the right to change, substitute or modify assignments):

  • Precision editing
  • Speech editing
  • Precision fades and crossfades
  • Subgrouping
  • Insert and bus processes
  • Vocal comping
  • Pan law
  • MS (mid-side)
  • Gain structure
  • MIDI tracks
  • Instrument tracks

Requirements

Equipment and software:

  • Modern digital audio workstation software such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic Pro, Studio One, Digital Performer, Reaper, Ableton Live, or similar.
  • Audio interface with two or more microphone inputs and phantom power (microphones are not necessary for this course but we have found through experience with our students that this is the minimum effective specification)
  • Headphone or loudspeaker monitoring
  • At least one plug-in (those that are supplied with the DAW will be fine)
  • A software instrument (can be very simple and basic)

IMPORTANT

This course is staged, meaning that each module must be completed before access to the next is available. Modules can be taken at one per week, or at any pace slower than that within the two-year enrollment period.

Please read the above paragraph carefully. We cannot allow any exceptions.
