Upon successful completion of Audio Production for Content Creators: Signal Flow & Introduction to Looping and Audio Production for Content Creators: Advanced Loop Creation and Underscoring, you will have the knowledge and skills to create professional audio:

  • Uncover how sound is recorded via microphones or imported via existing audio files, how it is mixed within a digital audio workstation, and how it can be edited and refined.
  • Learn how to render recordings to file formats recognized by other media, and then optimize to be played back on different types of sound systems.
