Working with sound.

  1. Audio Frequency Trainer

    I'd like to show you a new feature I've just finished working on. It's a simple online game that helps you learn to recognize different audio frequencies. This is an important skill for anyone dealing with audio.

    The game uses test tones which is possibly the easiest way to differentiate between frequencies. In the future I hope to do more advanced versions that use "real" audio clips such as speech and music. But for now I think this is a good way to get started. In any case, test ...

  5. How to work with a click-track

    Here's one for the musos out there. It's a subject that I recall well from my own days in the music industry - how to work with a metronome or "click track" when recording your material. It's not an easy thing to get used to but it's quite an important skill if you want a professional production (unless you're sure that your music doesn't need a consistent tempo).
