Audio 2


Audio 1 or an understanding of the concepts covered in Audio 1.

Location: Library B20
Week 2: Tuesday, June 24-Friday, June 27
Period 1: 8:30-10:00 am

Attention! If you have audio recorders, mics, etc, please bring them with you as only a limited number of recording devices will be available on-site.

This is a specialized workshop intended for people who have projects that require advanced techniques in audio recording, processing, and archiving. (Material covered in Audio 1 should prepare you for basic documentation.) The following is a list of possible topics to be covered in this workshop:
· Audio recording device specifications (recorders, microphones, and peripherals)
· Microphone placement under a variety of recording conditions
· Internet-based transcription techniques
· Digitization of legacy analog recordings
· Shopping for audio equipment for full documentation projects
The organization of the workshop is kept flexible so that we can respond to the needs of the participants. Depending on the size of the enrollment, we might organize consultation sessions targeted at individual projects. Given the needs-driven format of this workshop, it would be most useful for the participants to bring well-defined projects or project ideas involving audio materials, and/or specific needs involving audio data. Please email if you plan on taking this workshop.
