Sounds and music are embedded in almost every aspect of daily life. This course will provide an overview of the fundamental principles of sound and the factors that determine our audio perception. It will also explore techniques of recording, mixing, processing, synthesis, sampling, analysis, and editing of digital audio.
Great class. I completed it with a better understanding of the physics of sound, the mechanics of sound, and operational familiarity with programs like Audacity, Soundcloud, and Borderlands. It also helped my poetry writing (words are sounds, after all).
