The basics of audio editing using Hindenburg

6:00pm - 8:00pm EST
Online Workshop
Registration Closed

Let’s face it, the first time you open any audio editing program can seem daunting. What if it didn’t have to be? In this hands-on workshop, Senior Hindenburg Trainer Melissa Cáceres will walk you through how to approach editing a podcast without being a sound engineer. You’ll learn the basic technical skills you need to produce a high-quality audio story, including setting up a multitrack session, editing a raw interview or narration file, layering ambient sounds and some simple buff-and-shine techniques. Registration comes with a free, three-month license for Hindenburg audio editing software.

*This class is capped at 12.

Key Takeaways:

  • Importing audio from different sources and formats
  • Organizing your raw material
  • Basic (duck, sound bed, fades etc) and advanced automations and montage (multitrack editing)
  • Setting levels correctly for different formats, using plugins (EQ, noise reduction)
  • Exporting and uploading your final product
Note: Attendees are welcome to bring along an audio interview file of their own to work on alongside the tutorial. If not, practice audio files will be provided.
