NUAGE Courseware

This courseware will teach you how to produce audio for post-production, music, game sound and any other type of multimedia using the Nuage system and its components. It will take you through the process of setting up a system, recording various types of projects, editing those projects into a final form and then mixing the projects in preparation for delivery in the final format. We will use real-world examples including lab material just for this course which can be interactively used with texts and tutorial videos. Hopefully you will find this experience rewarding and come out of it with a strong skill set that will allow you to pursue a career in audio production.
