Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Producing Music for Advertisements.
If you're a premium member of the Lynda.com Online Training Library, you also have access to the raw audio material used to create the exercise content, as well as, all other audio and video examples featured throughout the course. In the exercise folder, you'll find a series of subfolders including PDF's of the creative brief that we'll go over. I also have full stems of the music. I'll be using Pro Tools, but you can use these WAV file stems to bring into any DA or workstation you might be using. We also have the temp music example, the video we'll use in the course, as well as, the voice over.
If you're a monthly member or annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the raw audio files but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
Note: While the composition of the music for this course takes place in Pro Tools, a majority of the content will be about the creative process and translates to almost any DAW.
