I’ve received the “Introduction to Music Production” Statement!

I have finally finished the course Introduction to Music Production by Berklee College of Music at Coursera.org.

I was actually tough, but fun at the same time. For those who have enjoyed the assignments I did as infographics, I will be releasing the rest soon.

Btw, below is a Statement of Accomplishment I received!

Dissecting the Sound Mixing Board: The Channel Strip Infographic

For this week’s (third) assignment in Introduction to Music Production course, I did an infographic that visualizes and briefly explains the main part of the Mixing board, or the Mixer, which is the Channel strip.

For those of you who are not familiar with a Mixing Board, it is the piece of equipment that allows you to mix different tracks of music and vocals, add different audio effects, manipulate the volume of different instruments, and output a stereo track from them.

I hope you enjoy it and share if you like.

Music Preproduction DAW Checklist: An Infographic

For my second assignment in Introduction to Music Production course which I’m taking, I worked on another infographic. This time it visualizes a checklist of the steps and configurations needed to be taken in preproduction before starting to work in the Digital Audio Workstation (D.A.W.).

For those of you who are not familiar with DAWs, a DAW is a software that plays a major part in the current music production process through Recording, Editing, Mixing, to Mastering a music track. Some examples of a DAW are Apple Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, Ableton Live, Adobe Audition, and the simpler, lower-end Garageband (for iOS, for Mac), among many others.

I hope you enjoy it too.
You can share if you like it especially inf you know someone who could benefit from it!

In my latest venture, I’ve been studying a pretty interesting online course on Introduction to Music Production at Coursera.org, and one of the lessons was related to Propagation, one of the main properties of sound. As part of my first assignment, I had the idea of making this infographic.

I have the intention of expanding and refining it later, but until that time comes, I wanted to share it with everyone.

While I got some pretty good positive feedback from my peers in my music class, more feedback is always appreciated!

Enjoy & Share!

How to continue browsing from desktop to mobile.

Have you ever been reading or viewing something on the web and wanted to read it to someone in the other room, or had to open it on your mobile or iPad and leave your desk quickly?

There’s a very easy way to do so on the spot, without having to bookmark it and then sync with iCloud, or even copying the URL and emailing it to yourself.

Tab transmit is a pretty handy way to continue browsing on your mobile.

Ingredients needed:

  • Safari Browser
  • Tab Transmit – Safari Extension (This is the trick)
  • iPhone, or any smartphone
  • A QR code scanning app

Preparation:

  1. While using Safari, just press the Tab Transmit button in your Safari toolbar, and a QR code is directly generated for the tab you’re viewing and is shown in a lightbox on top of your web page.
  2. Scan it with your QR scanning app, et voilà, it opens on your phone.
