Digital Audio with Audacity (271)
Audacity is one of the best choices for audio recording, editing, and mixing. It has a clean interface, excellent up-to-date features, and supports 32-bit floating-point audio. Audacity can record live sound, digitize old media, and work with most common digital music formats (AIFF, WAV, AU, IRCAM, MP3, WAV, OGG). Audacity includes a full set of basic effects such as reverb, delay, and compression. Additional formats and features are available through plug-ins. It is multi-platform (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and is available to everyone at no cost as a well-supported, award-winning open-source project.
In this class you will learn how to set up projects, record sounds, and import audio. We will show you how to select, trim, duplicate, split, align, copy, and time shift audio clips. You will adjust sound levels and create fades. You will work with multiple tracks. Learn to clean up audio and remove or suppress unwanted sounds. Combine, remix, and export audio to various formats.
You will also learn audio terminology, about various audio file formats, and how to select the right audio format for your application. You will learn about creating podcasts and posting audio files on the Web. The class includes several mini-projects for you to practice common editing tasks.
TJP&A has chosen Audacity for this class because it is feature rich, accessible, and shares many features in common with other audio editors. The skills you learn in this class will be readily transferrable to other stand-alone audio programs and the audio editing portions of video non-linear-editing systems.
