Veterans, novices and academics alike will find the segments titled Script Analysis & Production Development, Cue Plot, Creation & Procurement and Implementation to be engaging and enriching, while they learn in a fully-interactive environment. Categorized as Special Features, sections on Projects and Additional Resources will fill in any remaining gaps while rounding out the program. “This is simply a nice educational tool for anyone interested in sound and TSDI also includes training sections on our Audio Playback & Show Control software SFX.
