I had used to be a desk engineer through the 70s and 80s. I am now returning to recording with various DAWs and editors and plugins - with facilities that I would have sacrificed to dodgy gods for, back then. This course is excellent in its emphasis on 'doing things right' and in my particular case has effectively bridged my existing analogue desk/tape background skills into the DAW in front of me: I now know precisely how to proceed with it. Thanks!
Excellent presentation: succinctly covers the details with precision and authority.
