Best Review

I thoroughly enjoyed this course - the music technology timeline was an eye opener as to how much innovation has been done in the world of music technology, certainly since the 19th century (ever heard of Leon Theremin, Wendy Carlos? plus so many other ground-breaking characters). I learned vital skills working with Audacity as well, plus understanding synthesis using virtual instruments. The most surprising of all was how one could use Audacity effect plug ins to turn household sounds into the building blocks of something that could resemble a musical track. Could be completed using using free tools only (so no extra cost to the student). The only issue I had was with the softsynth, that required the Chrome browser, which I didn't want to install, so I opted to use a synthesiser VST plug-in, which I already owned.
