Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) — like Ableton Live or Logic Pro — are computer programs that allow us to record and tweak the sounds of synthesizers and drum machines, as well as to control software instruments. These powerful tools can translate your hardware-bound sounds to the digital realm, and even expand your music-making beyond the boundaries of physical devices. They help you not only polish, but have complete, fine-grained control, over the music you want to produce.
This is a hands-on introduction to using DAWs to make and record music. Through discussion, skill-sharing and experimentation with equipment we will provide, you will learn how two popular DAWs (Ableton Live and Logic Pro) are used to record instruments and control software instruments, and how you can employ these programs to fine tune your sound.
This event is for all (trans & cis) women and non-binary folx, especially those who are femme-identified. We ask that our cis male allies and friends respectfully do not attend, as we recognize that electronic music is very much dominated by cis men.
We hope to create an inclusive space for exploring an introduction to DAWs. Absolutely no experience is necessary!
