    Students will explore how to design a compelling audio production, make clean recordings, and shape their creations in the editing stage using  Adobe Audition . Student projects will range from interviews and conversations to audio fictions, essays and “soundscapes”—rich, multi-layered audio experiences. Students will leave with a polished sound production published to hosting site, Podbean.

    All classes will be held on campus at Point Park University in the Center for Media Innovation.

    This course provides the use of portable recorders, laptops, and a Radio Studio for recording sessions. Students are welcome to bring their own laptops and must bring their own WIRED, over-ear headphones. If you do not have a laptop or the correct headphones, we are happy to supply lenders.
