Tools for Creativity workshop with Matthew Gray
This workshop is an ‘add-on’ for those already using basic audio software for live performance such as QLab, ProTools, and StudioOne. The aim of the workshop is to increase design knowledge and problem solving by working through 10 cues of ever-increasing complexity. The workshop covers layering audio cues using workstation and performance software, editing the tops and tails of cues, creating looping musical phrases within cue sequences, and triggering cues with a keyboard key or another cue within a sequence. There will be 5 Teaching Assistants on hand to answer specific questions, and participants are encouraged to bring in projects they are working on or have worked on in the past
