sound design animation course

What is this course about?

Get started with Cubase 9.5. In the course, you will master one of the most convenient tools for working with sound design, as well as step by step study the process of creating all the elements of sound effects. We’ll concentrate on the niche side of sound production, which is work with animation videos. No matter if it is an explainer video telling the story of a company and its products or a visual essay (an author’s statement on a certain topic), the approach studied at the course works equally well for creating sound design in any sphere of visual media.
