Home Production with McKinley
October 28, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 18, 2020
This interactive 4-week class will introduce DIY musicians and stay-at-home songwriters to the endless possibilities of home recording and sound production. The classes will cover several important topics, such as maximizing a recording space to improve sound quality exploring advanced sound editing techniques experimenting with instrument EQs, MIDI inputs, and the Garageband loop library.
This class is geared towards musicians who are already familiar with the basics of multitrack recording. Participants are not required to attend the workshop with any pre-prepared musical materials—however, participants must have Garageband version 10 or later and be confident using Zoom. Workshop capacity will be limited to 15 people.
