Newbies Guide To Audio Recording Awesomeness 1: The Free Home Recording Studio

This 10-lesson (17 total short but powerful videos) course teaches you the basics of audio recording even if (especially if) you've never done any recording before.  We'll show you how to do such awesome audio feats as overdubbing for lush voices and vocal harmony, how to use and create loops, basic multi-track production and audio editing. And the best part - You can do it all without having to spend more than $0-$5 in software or equipment (the $5 is if you don't already have a mic - even a cheap plastic PC mic). All you need is a computer and access to the internet. We teach you how to do everything with the free software program called "Audacity."

Newbies Guide To Audio Recording Awesomeness 2: Pro Recording With Reaper Software

Upgrade your audio and raise the level of your voice-overs, podcasts, videos and music into the realm of professional audio using using the incredible software called Reaper (which is also incredibly inexpensive). Lessons cover the basics like recording and editing in Reaper, as well as some cool time-saving automation tricks for the voice-over folks, like splitting one file into lots of little ones and saving each one with its own file name, plus producing dialogue files with multiple character voices, and lot more.  For musicians there is more multi-track recording stuff for singing harmony with yourself, being a 1-man band, creating and working with loops, and a 3-part intro to MIDI for music recording, which shows you how to use virtual instruments such as the synthesizer that comes free with Reaper (ReaSynth), a free piano instrument we download and install together, and drums - using Reaper's ReaDrums.  Plus you'll learn how to use an external MIDI keyboard with Reaper, or if you don't have one yet, Reaper's Virtual Keyboard, to play music with your virtual instruments.
