Workshop: Mastering the Recording


Workshop: Mastering the Recording

from 160.00

Presented by Oral History NSW and Royal Australian Historical Society, Mastering The Recording is a hands-on training day to help you become confident with the technical side of oral history.

In this full day training workshop, you will learn

  • the recommended ways to set up your digital recorder

  • microphone placement

  • editing and processing audio using Audacity

  • backing up and archiving

You will NOT just be watching how it's done. You will be actively involved in each stage.

As this is very hands-on, it is recommended that you bring with you any digital recorder and laptop computer you already own.

If you do not currently have any equipment, you will be able to share the equipment we will be providing.

Bookings are essential.

Places are strictly limited to 10 participants.
