Back when I started my career as a web developer video on the web was pretty much non-existant considering we were using 56kb dial up, but once we managed to overcome the limiting bandwidth speeds video tutorials suddenly started to pop up on various sites, one of which was Lynda.com. I used to visit this site quite a lot for Flash development tutorials in the early days but it dropped off my radar until recently. I re-visited Lynda.com to find that the site has evolved considerably since I last saw it and now includes an Audio tutorials category including, as you will see in the video above, topics such as how to record music on an iPad. The videos are really high quality and a lot of work has gone into the production, what you see above is just a wee snippet this actual course includes videos about input devices, microphones, MIDI and importing and exporting for instance.

Here’s another video I thought was cool which explains what Delay is (as well as Modulation) and how to use it:
You can view this course here which includes how to use the various parameters of Delay effects (time, feedback, tempo) as well as the different type of delay effects (slapback, medium, long). In part 3 – Modulation, Chorus and Doubling Effects you will learn about LFO’s, rate and depth, modulation shape, double tracking and spreaders and thickeners. The final part of the course covers Spectral Effects from Delay such as Flanger and Phaser effects.
I should point out that because I think these courses look so great I have become an affiliate partner (I don’t have any other affiliate partnerships currently which I think speaks volumes) and clicking on any of the links above does include my affiliate ID so that if you do happen to sign up I will receive a small commission. I will personally be using Lynda.com to learn more about video editing to help improve my demo videos.
