A crucial part of creating music is having an understanding of the equipment and software. This workshop is an opportunity to gain a clear and concise understanding of the different digital audio workstations available. 

Producer Nate Smith will instruct participants on how to make use of softwares like Pro Tool, Logic Pro and Ableton. In the session, musicians will work to find the right DAW for your needs, and gain a basic understanding of what it takes to record from home.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is for emerging (early in career) Black artists who are looking to develop their technical skills, grow their talent and better understand the process of studio recording and production.
