You’ll learn how to:
–Record podcasts, interviews, and live performances
–Be your own backing band or chorus
–Edit, splice, mix, and master multitrack recordings
–Create super high-fidelity and surround-sound recordings
–Digitize your vinyl or tape collection and clean up noise, hisses, and clicks
–Create custom ringtones and sweet special effects

In addition, you’ll learn how to choose and use digital audio hardware like mics and preamps, and tune your computer for flawless audio performance. You’ll also find out how to package your work for digital distribution, whether you want to share a podcast through iTunes or sell your own CDs. Become your own producer with The Book of Audacity. The fun starts now.
