Description

Learn how to create sound effects for your app using GarageBand. No audio production experience necessary.

Learn from Colin Warn, a sound designer/music composer whose worked on projects ranging from game audio packs to thematic music for games for over five years.  When he’s not writing about himself in the third person for marketing copy, he also ghost produces dance music tracks: Having made 200+ productions as of writing this.

This course is designed for the developer who just wants to equip him/herself with a basic toolbox to create and edit sound effects for their app.

In this course, you’ll learn:

  • How to get sound effect ideas for your app
  • How to record, create, and/or find your sound effect ideas into GarageBand
  • How to do a handful of basic edits such as volume automation and cropping to cleanup your sounds
  • How to harness a handful of built-in GarageBand effects to spice up or soften your sounds
  • How to format and export your sounds for your app

…and much more.

 The first 1/4th of the course is open to preview, so go ahead and try it before you buy it.

Hope to see you in the classroom!

Music Producer, Ghost Producer, Composing 1-2 Tracks a Week

Colin Warn is a dance music producer and a Middle8Studio ghost producer, hailing from Seattle.  For some reason he also enjoys talking about himself in the third person.

Alter ego DJ Veaux. He's been teaching music production on forums from the legendary Laidback Luke production forums to the Max Vangeli "The Lab" forums for over four years.  His productions have received praise from the likes of Studio DMI, recording studio for artists like Diplo and Borgeous. He's made about 200+ tracks as of writing this bio from hip hop to dance music, and he continues to make 1-2 tracks a week.

Currently touring with Jordan Riley, so while he isn't on the road he's sitting down to figure out how he can help his fellow producer become the best artist they can be.
