Hi there, I am Jason, and welcome to Audio Evolutions! I am an audio engineer and I have spent the last 15 years working for a production company that produces live touring family entertainment productions that tour the world. Over those years I have developed editing, mixing, and mastering skills that I have used in all areas of the music and voice production of these shows.
The one tool at the foundation of the development of everyone of these skills has been one essential piece of software, Pro Tools. In this modern digital age, there is an abundance of different DAW’s (Digital Audio Workstations). Each of them bring their own advantages and unique features, but the one to rule them all in my opinion is Pro Tools. It became the standard of the audio production industry as the tape machines collected dust and the hard drives began to pile up. Today, it has it’s worthy competitors, but it still holds the foot as the single piece of audio software that you will find being used on almost every professional project with audio production needs.
One of the most incredible things about the new digital world we live in is that the same digital tools used by professionals are affordable and accessible to anyone with a computer. This puts creative tools in the hands of more people than ever. Whether you are a musician, podcaster, filmmaker, videographer, audio journalist, or any other digital content creator, you know the importance of high quality audio for your project. From the moment your audio is captured, and as it passes though the various stages of post production, it has the potential to be altered and improved upon by someone using the right tools in the right way. Ensuring your project passes through the hands of a experienced audio engineer, can ensure your project achieves the professional quality you are looking for.
This is the mission of Audio Evolutions, to help content creators achieve the audio quality they deserve. Part of that mission is also sharing some of the knowledge and experienced that I have gained using a professional tool like Pro Tools. I want to use this blog to share some the tips and tricks that I use everyday using this powerful piece of software. I’ll be sharing keyboard shortcuts, software features, and audio production techniques geared towards teaching others who may have little or no experience, feel confident picking up a professional tool and creating a beautiful sounding project. So welcome to the Audio Evolutions Blog, come along with me on this ride and lets makes some stuff sound good.
