Lynda.com Audio Recording Techniques
Video training site lynda.com has added a recording course to its audio curriculum, and is offering about an hour of free training.
Audio Recording Techniques is a five-hour program hosted and written by audio recording educator Bobby Owsinski, coauthor of Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust. Owsinski shows how to capture recordings of drums, acoustic and electric guitars, upright and electric bass, keyboards, horns, strings, vocals, and more. Using 3D graphics combined with practical examples, the course demonstrates various microphone types, placements, and response patterns.
Audio Recording Techniques combines live action with computer animation to visualize microphone polar patterns—meaning a microphone’s sensitivity to sounds coming from different directions, which is an important consideration in choosing and placing microphones.
Audio Recording Techniques joins a library of audio courses covering editing, mixing, mastering, remixing to DAW training in Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton Live, and more. Other recent additions include iPad Music Production: GarageBand, Remixing Techniques: Time Stretching, Mixing a Rock Song in Pro Tools, Melodyne Studio Essential Training, and Audio Post Workflow with Final Cut Pro X and Pro Tools.
