Prerequisite: General computer literacy (e.g., saving files, facility with a mouse and keyboard) is required.

This beginner workshop is designed for burlesque or variety performers who want to improve their audio files for playback during their live shows. This is a practical workshop which will present an effective workflow for customizing your act’s audio, smoothing transitions between songs, and even setting up a show control system to automate an entire set list.

Over 3 sessions, you will:

  • explore the functionality of cheap/free Digital Audio Workstations and editing software (Qlab, Garageband, and Audacity)
  • learn the basic principles of editing audio files
  • demonstrate the ability to edit audio files (cut, fade, loop, merge songs etc.) and output their track as a new single file.
  • create an automated setlist of 3 songs in Qlab
  • work through your challenges with other participants

Bring your own audio. Come prepared with 5 songs, any file type, and you will leave with a killer audio track ready for live performance.

All equipment and software provided. However, participants may bring their own headphones if they wish.
