Subject: PySIG. Audacity. (!) Schedule change. NOT IN MANCHESTER THIS MONTH
Date: Monday 23rd April 2012 17:00:41 UTC (over 6 years ago)
SPECIAL OCCASION. PySIG WILL BE IN PEPPERELL THIS THURSDAY. NOT MANCHESTER. Program: Audacity Location: Pepperell NOT MANCHESTER. Can't be in two places at once! With considerable reluctance we admit that the sometimes conflict between the wonderful things which tend to happen on fourth Thursdays/last Thursdays is too tough to handle this month. Because this month's Tech Talk(*) will be Bill Hewett's swan song at Pepperell's Lawrence Library. Bill makes the trip up from Newton to do his presentations, which have always been great, and this month's presentation will be his last as this summer he and his family pack up for Stanford, where his wife will be entering her residency. That's cause for both celebration and sadness. And because we know that more than a few PySIG enthusiasts are also Audacity enthusiasts, Mark and I have decided to offer this month's PySIG meeting as a "field trip", to take in Bill's program on Audacity. And, oh yes, enjoy our requisite milk and Janet's cookies. (Actually, Janet has made cupcakes this time :). Mark is bringing the milk. Thanks, Mark! So. PySIG WILL BE IN PEPPERELL THIS THURSDAY. NOT MANCHESTER. SPECIAL OCCASION. Please join Mark and Deb and Bill Hewett for a special evening. And thanks to the Lawrence Library for hosting this continuing series on Free software. Field_trip'ly yrs, Bill _______ Sent from my virusproofed Linux PC (*) "Tech Talks" are a several-years-running sequence of regular programs about Free software given for the benefit of the public at the Pepperell Lawrence (free public) Library. Not so much a LUG, more of a community outreach. Well received and well attended. Kudos to our own Mark Boyajian! ______________________________________________________________ >From Mark's PDF announcement sent out to the "Tech Talk" list Digital Audio Editing with Audacity When: Thursday, April 26th, 6:30pm Where: Pepperell's Lawrence Library 15 Main Street Pepperell, MA 01463 978 433-0330 http://www.lawrencelibrary.org/ Please join us in welcoming back Bill Hewett for another great session working with Open Source Audio software. Audacity is a free, open source, cross-platform digital multi-track audio editor for Linux/Unix, MacOS and Windows. It is designed for easy recording, playing and editing of digital audio. Editing is very fast and provides unlimited undo/redo. Bill will provide an overview of audio formats and transcoding and review the use of "tracks", audio input sources, track manipulation, and final mixing. Sound cool? Check this out: > Tracks: Learn about Mono and Stereo tracks and multi-track recording. > Input Sources: Explore how to select input sources such as an internal microphone, USB devices, and your internal sound card. > Track Magic: Manipulate tracks by adjusting gain/volume, left/right pan, fading, and splicing/splitting. > Mixing: Perform mixing for your final master and export to target file format(s). Don't miss this very special presentation on this fantastic application! Whether you want to record audio from the web, your own performances, or make your own custom "mixes" of recorded music, this is a great tool, and Bill is a great teacher on the subject with lots or real-world experience! So mark your calendars, spread the word, and have your questions ready for Bill.
