Everyday, more of the recording and post production studio infrastructure collapses into the frame of a computer. This two-part event will focus on technical concerns unique to DAW based recording, as well as present power user application techniques.
Bits and bytes and bottlenecks:
Inside a DAW, music exists as data, but a special kind of data that is sensitive to issues like word length, processor resolution, headroom and delay compensation. These aren’t the sexy parts of the feature set, to be sure, but attention to the details can noticeably and measurably improve the final product. Our presentations will focus on some of the core issues that
require attention.
Beyond the basics:
While a DAW can function as a simple recorder or editor, with plug-ins and other DSP tricks at their disposal, a DAW can also manipulate audio in sophisticated ways that were hitherto impossible. Power users will present advanced, cross platform techniques for the DAW user.
