Audacity is a free open-source program/ software for recording, editing and generating sound. It has developed from a small burning program into a practical editing tool used by serious radio stations.
You can download the program and its plugins free of charge on this address: https://www.audacityteam.org/ or we can do it together during the workshop.
In the first part of the workshop, we will present the program interface and explain basic commands and tools for sound editing: record, import-export, cut-paste, increase-decrease volume, fade in-fade out etc. In the second part of the workshop, we will tackle specific sound editing tasks.
By the end of the workshop, the attendees should be able to record, process and edit sound- from a simple audio format, such as an interview, to more complex sound structures , such as a radio coverage which could include music/background music, sound effects, etc. in addition to voices.
Features of the Audacity software are not only interesting to radio workers, but also to the creators of (electronic) music, videos and to everyone who wants to gain experience in digital sound processing.
You don't need any prior knowledge, basic computer literacy is sufficient.
