Audio Editing for Sound Design

A podcast is much more than just our voices. Music, sound effects, and generated tones can add (or ruin) a listener’s experience. Featuring the digital audio editor Audacity, this workshop will help attendees learn how to use music, loops, ambient sounds, sound effects, and other sound design techniques to create a rich soundscape for their podcasts.
