TLDR: The 2021 Premium Audio Production Bundle explores the equipment, tools, and tips for capturing perfect voice recordings in several of the most popular free and paid audio apps.
Here’s a little tidbit for all you podcasters and wannabe podcasters out there: invest in knowing how to record good audio. While quality audio certainly does wonders for the professionalism of a recording, it even plays a surprisingly large role in whether listeners even take the whole project seriously.
A USC study found when subjects were asked to rate two versions of the same YouTube talk — one with crystal clear audio and another with poor sound quality — there was a marked difference. Researchers found viewers of the hard-to-hear the video deemed the talk worse, the speaker less intelligent and less likeable, and even that the research itself was less important.
Audio matters — and with the training in The 2021 Premium Audio Production Bundle ($29.99, over 90 percent off, from TNW Deals), students get a full overview on the tools the professionals use to present absolutely pristine audio for a YouTube video, a podcast, voice-over work, or even multi-track music production.
This collection is a motherlode of recording knowledge, five courses covering the full spectrum of audio capture from the most popular apps to the engineering tricks that can give a recording the full rich presentation the work demands.
Students get started with Audio Recording 101: Record Voice Audio for Video Production and Audacity Essentials for Voiceover: Record, Edit and Process Audio, a pair of courses based around using Audacity, an absolutely free audio editing platform. This training explains how to outfit yourself with the right microphone, record high quality voice audio at home, then edit and process that video whether it’s part of a digital video or film, a podcast, or even professional voiceovers for advertising, audiobooks, and more.
The Audio Production Course: Record and Mix Better Audio advances that training, getting into specific tactics for tackling tough audio setups from using windscreens and audio interfaces to full explainers on some of the most important audio manipulation effects like gain, noise gate, de-essing, EQ, compression, limiting and more.
For Adobe fans, the Audio Mixing and Processing Voice in Adobe Premiere Pro CC course gets into the often neglected audio mixing and production demands when using one of the web’s most popular and most powerful video editing apps.
Finally, there’s even training in the Music Production in Logic Pro X : Audio Mixing for Podcasts course in using Logic Pro X, Apple’s own professional-grade audio editing software.
The coursework in The 2021 Premium Audio Production Bundle is a $1,000 value, but with the current deal, it’s all available for about $6 per course at $29.99.
