In this course, author Josh Harris demonstrates time-stretching techniques in four of the major digital audio workstations: Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Reason, and Ableton Live. Josh covers the basic time-stretching treatments, where minimal tempo adjustment is needed, and then moves into more difficult territory—remixing at a much slower or faster tempo than what the original tracks were recorded at—where time stretching is pushed to the extreme. Another technique shows how to create a composite vocal from multiple time-stretched tracks. Each lesson employs real-world musical examples to clearly show where each time-stretching technique is useful and how the results of time stretching affect the sound of a song.
Throughout this course, I'm going to assume you have a solid understanding of at least one digital audio workstation such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Reason, or Ableton Live, and at least a basic understanding of time stretching audio. If you need a refresher on your DAW choice, please seek out the Essential Training title for that DAW on the online training library here at lynda.com. Also, I recommend you watch my previous course, Remixing a Song in Logic Pro.
The course is geared toward Logic Pro users, but will benefit users of any DAW wishing to gain a better understanding of the remixing process and provide a glimpse into the craft that goes into creating a successful remix.
