    Avid Pro Tools

    Hey, it looks like I'm going to be taking over from someone the post-production of audio files before publishing them on the internet. I asked him what he used on the .wav files (sound is captured using Audacity) and he commented: "I worked within Pro Tools 11, where I would use the Channel Strip plugin on the audio track. I think the preset I used was 'vocal leveler'. I'd then put a Maxim plugin (which is a limiter) the master channel. Again I think the preset was 'radio limiter' or something. I didn't try to make it as loud as possible (I may have played with the wet/dry signal in the plugins to tone it down), but I was trying to get the level to be in the ball park of any other published audio. I was aiming for having the master level bouncing nicely away between -15 and 0dB" Just sort of feeling my way as I read various things on the net and wondered if anyone here had any comments? * should I get Pro Tools for a Mac instead of a PC? * I really know very little about published audio - where is best to start to learn about this? Reading on the Pro Tools site they suggest online courses - does anyone have recommendations? * I asked whether just using audacity plugins was enough and was told that a high quality approach was required I've mucked around with a sound desk before and have a little bit of an ear for EQ but this is the whole post production thing... Helpful comments appreciated.
