Maybe some background on what I’m involved in would be helpful.
The short description is we have a room in a room with some gear that we can approximate a studio with. I’ve a computer with Ardour that I can USB into the X32. I think for now we can do any return monitoring with the mixer, so latency issues might be sidestepped (at least initially).
And we have teens that want to learn how to record, mix, and edit.
We plan to start with a couple motivated high schoolers.
So, what I need to do is come up with some sort of curriculum that introduces the basics (and this case will probably include mic choices and placement to how to provide a monitor mix, etc.).
I’m guessing I’ll need to focus on the “how” of a recording session initially. (So, intro to multi track recording with Ardour, I guess. And all the virtual cabling…) Then progress into what to do with the tracks once the tracks are in Ardour.
So, some sort of course structure for the above is my goal. (I’m just WAGin here so I’m open to any way that makes sense.)
Source material for a variety of session types should be easy to come by, since the theatrical program provides lots of talent, in addition, the two music directors teach at local high schools and are private instructors as well. In addition, the organization wants to do voice overs, adds, etc.
