It will take in both the editorial considerations of editing, and the principles of good practice, as well as the technical skills involved. The system you’ll be using is SADiE version 6, and the course will include basic operation, a software overview, speech editing, levels and fades, feature mixing basics, mastering levels for web and radio, bouncing and transfer, file management.

You will be using a PC based SADiE at Whistledown. However, you may prefer to bring your own laptop loaded with SADiE.
