Comprehensive Course on Soundminer V5 Pro
Please note that this course does NOT cover the sampler, Radium, that is built into Soundminer. That may be the topic of an additional course at a later time.
My intention is to continue to post update videos as new features are added to Soundminer. If you decide to purchase, please make sure to subscribe to the newsletter on checkout to receive updates of additional videos being posted.
The download for this tutorial is a 14gb .RAR file. The site incorrectly lists the size above the 'Add to Cart' button.
The user license for this course covers only a single user to download and view these materials. If you represent a company or educational institution and are interested in a site license, please contact me through this site, I'm happy to try to work out some arrangement.
This course, months in the planning and making, covers nearly everything in Soundminer V5 Pro for Mac (and most of the topics will also apply to many other versions of Soundminer and the PC versions as well).
You may download the first set of chapters (00 and 01) for free from the following link to evaluate. The remaining chapters and bonus files are only available for purchase through this website.
This course contains over 50 videos, totaling over 15 hours of instruction.
From beginner to expert, this course will teach you all you need to know about this powerful audio asset program. From scanning sounds, editing metadata, spotting files to your DAW, we cover it all. As I add videos in the future as Soundminer continues to evolve, I will send out links to the new videos, please subscribe during checkout to receive these updates.
Each video is relatively self-contained and contains both chapter markers and English captions (which aren't perfect but mostly pretty solid).
