PySIG WILL BE IN PEPPERELL THIS THURSDAY. NOT MANCHESTER.
Can't be in two places at once! With considerable reluctance
we admit that the sometimes conflict between the wonderful things
which tend to happen on fourth Thursdays/last Thursdays is too
tough to handle this month. Because this month's Tech Talk(*)
will be Bill Hewett's swan song at Pepperell's Lawrence Library.
Bill makes the trip up from Newton to do his presentations, which
have always been great, and this month's presentation will be his
last as this summer he and his family pack up for Stanford, where
his wife will be entering her residency.
That's cause for both celebration and sadness. And because we
know that more than a few PySIG enthusiasts are also Audacity
enthusiasts, Mark and I have decided to offer this month's PySIG
meeting as a "field trip", to take in Bill's program on Audacity.
And, oh yes, enjoy our requisite milk and Janet's cookies.
(Actually, Janet has made cupcakes this time :). Mark is bringing
the milk. Thanks, Mark!
So. PySIG WILL BE IN PEPPERELL THIS THURSDAY. NOT MANCHESTER.
Please join Mark and Deb and Bill Hewett for a special evening.
And thanks to the Lawrence Library for hosting this continuing
series on Free software.

(*) "Tech Talks" are a several-years-running sequence of
regular programs about Free software given for the benefit of
the public at the Pepperell Lawrence (free public) Library.
Not so much a LUG, more of a community outreach. Well received
and well attended. Kudos to our own Mark Boyajian!

Digital Audio Editing with Audacity
When: Thursday, April 26th, 6:30pm
Where: Pepperell's Lawrence Library
15 Main Street
Pepperell, MA 01463
Please join us in welcoming back Bill Hewett for another great session
working with Open Source Audio software. Audacity is a free, open source,
cross-platform digital multi-track audio editor for Linux/Unix, MacOS and
Windows. It is designed for easy recording, playing and editing of digital
audio. Editing is very fast and provides unlimited undo/redo. Bill will
provide an overview of audio formats and transcoding and review the use
of "tracks", audio input sources, track manipulation, and final mixing.
Sound cool? Check this out:
> Tracks: Learn about Mono and Stereo tracks and multi-track recording.
> Input Sources: Explore how to select input sources such as an
internal microphone, USB devices, and your internal
> Track Magic: Manipulate tracks by adjusting gain/volume, left/right
pan, fading, and splicing/splitting.
> Mixing: Perform mixing for your final master and export to
target file format(s).
Don't miss this very special presentation on this fantastic application!
Whether you want to record audio from the web, your own performances, or
make your own custom "mixes" of recorded music, this is a great tool, and
Bill is a great teacher on the subject with lots or real-world experience!
So mark your calendars, spread the word, and have your questions ready for Bill.
