Course Offers State of the Art Recording Software Instruction

OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University's Continuing Education program will offer two workshops on using Digidesign's Pro Tools software, the premiere audio recording and editing software tool. WSU is the only Digidesign-sponsored school in Utah.

Two sessions of Pro Tools 101 will be taught by adjunct professor Mark Maxson. The first will run June 19-23 from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily. The deadline to register for this class is June 16.

A second session will be offered July 20-22, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The registration deadline for that section is July 18. Each session costs $450 per person and will be held in room 322 of the Val A. Browning Center for the Performing Arts on WSU’s Ogden campus. Maxson says the class is accessible for anyone with basic computer skills.

The workshop will offer insights into system capabilities, introduction to the software and its navigation, and techniques for recording, editing, importing and managing audio files. Students also will learn about loop recording, using fades, basic mixing and AudioSuite plug-ins.

Maxson has been an adjunct music faculty member at WSU since 1992 and full-time professional staff since 2000. He has designed and developed the Department of Performing Arts Technology Lab and an Introduction to Music Technology course, which is currently in its seventh year. He is a graduate of WSU and an alumnus of the Berklee College of Music.
