Description

Digital Audio Workstations bring the marvels of the recording studio into the domestic environment.

With the advances in technology, musicians (whether pro or hobbyist) have at their fingertips the means to hear their music as it is intended- clear, in ensemble and polished.

For some, DAWs offer an opportunity to piece together the complete elements of a composition while for others, digital effects (that make the music shimmer) offer the allure.

All that is required is some familiarity with the necessary, operational procedures.

And that is were this course plays a roll (although some previous exposure to the DAW is recommended).

You'll be able 'visualise' music, manage tracks, create sounds and unlock the secret to how effects work!

The course also features an original track for the purposes of enjoyment or playing along to.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone with a passion for creating music.
  • Songwriters wishing to improve song construction.
  • Recording technicians requiring technical clarity.

I'm Dan Treger and I've always had a keen interest in the recording studio environment. Like the painter's palette, it is in the music studio that musical forms are mixed, blended and take shape...And I'm often to be found in my own studio.

I've been in pop bands since the 1980s and have seen and been bewitched by the process of writing, then performing, then recording songs...It is a process of constructing, refining and distilling an artefact (the song) that then, hopefully, leaves a lasting impression on those who hear it.

In this course my hope is that you will increase your familiarity with the tool that many of us have at our disposal these days, the DAW...And just for the sake of further familiarity, like the way in which one learns an instrument, the ultimate goal of clean, masterful recordings is made easier!
