We are pleased to announce two new half-day courses, for the morning and afternoon of 23 January 2020

Morning: 'Down the Line - recording remote interviewees' 

It’s often too expensive or physically impossible to meet up with the contributors you need. For quality productions the next step has been to book often costly studios in two locations. But there are other possibilities. With a look at using simple software like Skype or WhatsApp, traditional but effective techniques such as ‘simulrec’, and new professional systems like Source Connect, this ½ day course enables content creators and production teams to get broadcast quality interviews with remote contributors without the expense of booking a studio and SM. Clear illustrations and practical examples take attendees from first principles – who needs to hear what, what audio do we want to finish with – through to issues of quality and reliability.  Find full details of this course by clicking here.

Afternoon: 'Choosing and Using Music' - adding musical sparkle to speech-based radio and podcasts

Music has a unique power to lift and enhance audio content. But how to find that perfect track? Is it OK to use it? And how to mix it for the best effect? This short course aims to de-mystifying music for producers and production teams, so they can fully release its potential.  From branding to punctuation, establishing a mood or binding together a package, music has many uses in radio and podcasts. With plenty of audio examples and the chance to try out newly-learned skills, Choosing and Using Music aims to give attendees the skills and confidence needed to add musical magic to their productions.  Find full details of this course by clicking here.
