About Tools
Transom Tools provides technical help for producing programs, from collecting sound in the field, through editing and mixing on Digital Workstations, up to preparing your program for uplink or upload. The columns and discussion boards can help experienced producers negotiate the conceptual shift from analog production and make best use of their tools, as well as folks just starting out with their first projects. We will focus on affordable and practical strategies of digital production that apply to many types of projects, from tape-syncs to long-form documentaries.
