Welcome to the Audacity Bootcamp

The Audacity Bootcamp is a training ground for podcasters, podcast editors, and podcast producers who use Audacity as their podcast recording and editing software. In addition to posts I make here, I offer on-line courses for Audacity podcasters, podcast editors, and producers. These courses consist of on-demand video lectures, hosted at Udemy.

Audacity Bootcamp: Beginner to Advanced is for Audacity users at any skill level. As the title suggests, it takes students from beginner topics to advanced editing skills through how-to videos with plenty of examples. What students are saying:

  • “This course was useful from start to finish. I had watched a lot of videos and read a lot of forums on how to use Audacity, but this course blew everything else out of the water. Mike makes everything very clear and easy to understand. I thought that I would work on editing my podcast while I was taking this class, but I quickly realized that I would have a much higher quality product if I waited until I was finished. I didn’t feel like any of the lessons were fluff or difficult to understand. AND I think that I will be a much better editor, which is ultimately the goal.” -SS

  • “This course was fantastic! This is the best course on Audacity that I have taken on Udemy. Mike has very clear and easy-going style. The lessons are short and to-the-point, no fluff, and full of content.” -SJ

  • “One of the best teachers I have had on Udemy. Thank you” -KC

  • “This has many useful lessons. We have already solved the problems I was running into. My recordings already sound better!” -DM

  • “First Class presentation. Each lesson clearly explained and accompanied by excellent video and audio content. I have learned a lot about Audacity and would recommend this course to anyone wishing to know more about the Audacity program.” -JM

Zoom H6 Audio Recording Essentials is for those who record using the Zoom H6 recorder and then edit that recorded audio in Audacity or a similar program. What students are saying:

  • “Great resource for Podcasting with the Zoom H6. Detailed and informative class. Saved me time learning about this incredible machine.” -JA
  • “Explained details from a very fundamental level and good for entrance level users to follow, or an experienced user who hasn’t used this equipment for a while to pick up.” -AD
