Scott Hirsch working on his upcoming title in a lynda.com recording booth.
Last week we had the pleasure of Scott Hirsch joining us in the lynda.com studio to record a Logic Pro 9 course. Scott is a sound designer, editor and mixer for film and video, musician, and audio engineer. His credits include audio post production work on films like the Sundance Film Festival 2010 short The Visitors, and recording, mixing, composing, and playing with bands such as The Family Band, Hiss Golden Messanger, and The Amateurs. In addition, he’s taught at audio engineering schools and is a certified Digidesign and Apple audio instructor and authored the book, Pro Tools 7 Session Secrets: Professional Recipes for High-Octane Results (Wiley), Scott truly has passion for audio/music and that clearly came across when I sat down and talked to him about his work.
Scott and I shared about that moment in our history when we knew first realized what we wanted to do in life.
“The moment I overdubbed my first track, I knew I was hooked,” said Scott. For me it was very similar: It was the first time I tracked in the studio. Scott and I both cut our teeth on tape. It’s wild to think how different it would have been, had we access to the power of tools like Logic, as we do today. Not only is Logic a powerful DAW (digital audio workstation) but it is an amazing song creation tool.
Scott is a very talented instructor and I anticipate that there will be quite a number of those moments from members watching this upcoming tutorial, in addition to a few potential ah-ha! moments from those already familiar with Logic. His nine-plus years of teaching digital audio have brought indispensable knowledge and boundless creativity to his students. I found his enthusiasm and knowledge infectious. When I got home after our talk, I couldn’t help but fire up Logic and take a look at some of topics he had been recording that day in the studio.
Keep an eye open for Scott’s new titles coming out soon.
