With the proliferation of small digital recorders, cell phones, and video cameras that capture audio data, it is no wonder that audio evidence is an increasingly important part of today's investigations. Unfortunately there is no shortage of noisy, muffled, unintelligible audio that limits its usefulness. Do you have the knowledge and expertise to enhance audio evidence and present it in court?
Introduction to Forensic Audio Analysis will introduce the fundamentals of audio, and the processing techniques for forensic audio clarification. This three-day hands-on workshop will cover sound fundamentals, forensic audio "Best practices," common audio problems, and basic audio enhancement principles. Students will learn how to improve audio recording issues with software tools like Audacity, iZotope RX 4, Sound Forge 11, and Pro Tools. Attendees will also receive information on forensic audio reference resources as well as an overview of other enhancement tools currently available.
