Well done and good information. Showing definitions for new terms was particularly helpful, especially when paired with the visuals on the screen. One recommendation would be showing how to do the same things in audio or video software that is more widely used by the typical prosumer.
Brief and legit overview of the steps in sound design. Pointers on the little bits of detail to pay attention to, and what makes a great design. Thank you for the great insight!
