Berkleemusic.com, the online school of Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music, is debuting the new course “Pro Tools: Virtual Instruments and Effects” for their upcoming spring term, beginning April 5th, 2010. The course is designed to teach students to play the new virtual instruments and effects found in Pro Tools 8 and beyond, and improve their overall musical productions, whether for TV, film, commercials, Web sites, video games, or the productions of artists they may be working with.

The course focuses on creating music with all of the new A.I.R. instruments and effects in Pro Tools 8, including the six free instruments and 20 new effects. “The first six weeks of the course are devoted to covering one instrument per week (Boom, Vacuum, DB-33, Xpand!2, Structure Free, and Mini Grand) where we'll go through what every single control on each instrument does and use them to create our own sounds and music,” says course author and Pro Tools expert David Franz. “In the following six weeks, we'll concentrate on the variety of new A.I.R. effects that are included with Pro Tools 8, with lessons on EQ, Dynamics (compression, etc), Delay & Modulation, Reverb, Harmonic/Distortion, and all more.”

Students will also learn important background information about each instrument and effect, and listen to examples of how they are properly used. The course features a wide array of artist examples, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans and many more.

By the end of this music production course, students will be able to utilize automation and MIDI Learn functions, create, edit, and arrange drum beats in Boom, adjust VTOs, Filters, Envelopes, Modulation, and Arpeggiators to create new sounds using Vacuum and much more.
