What you will learn
How to edit audio from recorded speech, interviews and music.
A working knowledge of a great program called 'Reaper' for all your sound work.
Insight into tips and techniques to stand out from the crowd.
Produce a final mixed down audio file ready for distribution and sharing.
The nuts and bolts of editing audio using a fantastic software programme called 'Reaper'*.
We'll be covering everything from downloading and setting up the programme, getting sound files in, editing out sections, how to make that sound good, saving everything, and then exporting your work to produce a final audio file to use.
While there are many courses on the concepts, marketing and logistics of podcasts - this course is specifically focused on sound. Mission simple: make you, and your content sound as on point as possible.
With the whole world seeming to be jumping into podcasts and sharing audio - these essential lessons will be an important step in standing out. Why invest so hard in your time and brand only to be let down by substandard sound?
Please note: for speed and efficiency - these lessons don't cover recording of audio into Reaper; that's set for a future course. Also, you will be given a fully working template with settings that are bespoke. Designed with radio/podcast work in mind, less so for music composition based projects. This is a very basic, short, complete beginner's course to get you up and running fast.
Taught by Chris Bailey (The Boy in the Corner) who has over 25 years of professional radio and podcast production to bring to your table.

*A 60 day free trial of the software which works across Mac/PC. The trial comes as standard with or without this course (plus you'll receive a template that is bespoke and set up by Chris). After 60 days, there is an option to keep trialling or a very reasonable $60 starting licence at the time of writing this, no monthly or yearly subscriptions.
