A two-day workshop for producers and podcasters who want to expand their editing skills beyond the basics and add some magic to their mixes.
EQ, delay, reverb, pitch-shift, automation... come and learn how to use technical tricks to support your audio storytelling and create more atmospheric scenes. This course will focus on the practical creative applications of tools, rather than theory. There'll also be lots of inspiring listening and time to play, as well as a visit from a special guest:

Participants will need to bring a laptop pre-loaded with Reaper editing software.
