To truly enhance killer mograph, you need killer audio! This intermediate level course is for anyone interested in learning more about sound design, custom effects creation and mixing -- including voice processing and sweetening. The course is project based and will look at two different projects to arm you with some techniques to help you create some killer audio.

Our first project is a trailer for a video game "Broforce". The voice recording, music and game sounds will be provided and it's our job to fill out the rest with some custom sound effects and then mix the project for web distribution. Sound design is more than just adding some swishes and whooshes; it's looking at the all of the sound for the whole piece and tailoring it to best support the visuals and the story.

For our second project, we'll be creating the sonic signature for a brand identity mograph piece for a fictional tv channel "moote" which was created in our MOG210 course. Different from our first project, there won't be anything provided by the client -- which allows us to create some custom effects and explore some conventional and unconventional sound processing techniques. We'll finish up this project mixing in 5.1 for Broadcast Distribution -- using the LKFS/LUFS metering system.

Plus, in addition to the composite mixes we'll be providing stems for each project.

This course will use the Adobe Audition CC 2014 release, but we'll also look at some additional third party plugins and tools along the way!

This course is taught by Ryan Pribyl, who has 24 years experience manipulating audio and over 12 years experience in post production sound. Ryan still as an immense amount of passion for making the world sound better.
