A friend with a lot of experience in professional audio sent me a link to register for a free course in digital audio - no textbooks or hardware needed, other than a computer with a built in microphone and an internet connection. The instructor is a professor at Emory University who knows his stuff - looks like a great resource.

About the course:


This course will provide an overview of the fundamental principles of sound and the factors that determine our audio perception. It will explore techniques of recording, mixing, processing, synthesis, sampling, analysis, and editing of digital audio using freely distributed audio production software for both PC and Mac. Students will also learn an array of sound design and editing techniques for use in film and web-based media, art installations, soundscape creations, or live and internet music performances.


Starts on Jan. 28th, but registration is still open.

Here's the link:

It turns out I have a preference for a high degree of roughness. Now I know what to call it!

There is another course starting on March 1 that covers working with Digital Audio Workstations such as Garage Band, Pro Tools, Logic, SONAR, etc. It covers recording chains (mics, pre-amps, AD/DA converters, monitors, etc.) and recording, editing, mixing, adding MIDI sequences, etc. It also covers using compressors, noise gates, filters, routing sends and returns, etc.

It's taught by someone from the Berklee College of Music, a top notch music school.
