This course provides all the necessary foundational skills to create and manage sessions efficiently, record and edit audio and MIDI, understand the basics of signal flow and effects processing, navigate all of Pro Tools’ windows, record and edit automation, and produce finished works ready for iTunes, SoundCloud, a burned CD, or any other means of sharing your work!

I love how you make time for the students who are hungry to learn and absorb, office hours and studio time, and the personability and friendliness of your staff were some of my favorite things about Pyramind and essential to making the most of my learning time with you guys.
