What people are saying

music production

This course did a good job of realizing the theoretical concepts introduced in Technology of Music Production, walking through how to do the different things discussed earlier.

I have wanted to know how music production is done in the all-digital domain with a DAW for years.

Especially nice to take right after the Technology of Music Production, which was very theoretical.

It's a great DAW For a course with the name "Pro Tool Basics", I was expecting some specific knowledge about this particular software but what the course really teaches is basic music production things (samples, synthesizers, how to create tracks, how to record audio, compressors, EQs, etc).As I am already a music producer using Logic Pro, I was hoping to learn more about the software itself and its differences in comparison with other DAWs in the market, so I was a little bit disappointed in the end!

This course is very similar to music production but using only pro tools.If you are looking to learn more about music production using pro tools, then this is an awesome course but if you already have some background in music production and you just want to learn pro tools basics, then I don't think this is an appropriate course (in my opinion).

Excelent.The basics of Pro Tools; but also the basics of elementary concepts of audio and music production.

This course is a good shortcut to start Music Production using Pro Tools.

This prevented me from completing this course and then being able to enroll in the capstone course for the Music Production certificate, which I would have liked to have gotten.

after the 2nd week, I'm very excited to continue learning more and more in an audio engineering and music production fields.Very clear presenting carefully arranged topicsvery helpful course Excellent!

I was also able to learn a lot of about electronic music production.

pro tools first

On the other side, I was a bit limited at the moment of doing assignments since I used Pro Tools First.

I had many issue with pro Tools first, be sure to get a full vertion and an iLok key from avid before enrolling, will save much stress and trouble.

Specially in the last week's peer graded assignment there's one point for using synthesizers which aren't available in Pro Tools First, which I felt was very unjust given that at the start of the course they claim that this course is compatible with Pro Tools First.

Wonderful session , it helps me a lot , very creative and helpful The Pro Tools First application did not work on my PC.

learn more

I was waiting to learn more things on these topics and not on EDM...P.S.I really like EDM but this shouldn't be the main focus of the course!

The information is presented and demonstrated with such clarity it keeps you wanting to learn more .

I was hoping to learn more on mastering and here I heard only that "mastering is basically to make the track louder".

much more

Difficult things have become much more simplier, no matter what DAW you have.

I believe that instead of learning how to handle PRO TOOLS from scratch you should change the course to something more creative like recording different instruments, measuring the studio space, monitors and much more helpful things than advertise and make AVID richer.

My main goal here was to make my workflow much more organized, smooth, and structured while also becoming much more confident in my mixing abilities.

This class not only reinforced my understanding of the fundamentals, but it filled in several of those gaps and made mixing, mastering, and using certain effects much more approachable.
