This is the June 2011 program presented by Will Cheshier. The title is "Making Joyful Noise With Your Computer For Fun and Profit."
Sure, music has charms to "soothe the savage breast", but it also has been known to help out in movies (can you imagine "2001" without daaaaaaaaaa, daaaaaaaaaa, daaaaaaaaaa, DA DAAAAAAAA, boom boom boom boom, etc? Me neither). It's also good for podcasts, home videos and it's just plain fun. Computer music and sound has come to the point where anyone can produce professional-quality recordings on a laptop for not a lot of money. At the July CDPUG meeting we'll be talking about the equipment and techniques needed to get sound into and out of your computer so you can join the fun.
Will Cheshier is a graphic designer and regionally active singer/songwriter and guitarist. He also suffers from Musical G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome). He has been recording in professional studios and at home since the 80s with an excessive amount of acquired gear, so he knows a thing or two about what works and a lot about what doesn't when it comes to computer sound
