Earlier this year iZotope launched Pro Audio Essentials, a free online course designed to help aspiring music producers hone their audio skills.
They have video tutorials to learn the basics of digital audio, plus how to understand compression and equalization.
What makes it unique is the fact that you can test your skills through game-based challenges.
The idea is to take what you’ve learned and apply it to actual audio tests.
The course covers things such as equalization, compression, bit depth, and sample rate.
Currently the challenge only applies to the equalization category, but the other sections are supposed to be added soon.
The EQ challenge consists of 4 levels. You have to pass each level before moving onto the next. It’s a pretty cool way to learn how EQs work and how to hear the differences between frequencies.
The best thing about the course is that you can learn for free; it doesn’t cost a dime to use and they aren’t trying to bug you to buy something. If you haven’t tried it head over to iZotope’s website to check it out.
