Audio Design Desk with Gabe Cowan

Exploring the Creative Power of Audio Design Desk, with Gabe Cowan and Creative COW

Gabe Cowan, Jared Otto, and Will Heyman work on a sound design project beginning with silent footage. Within minutes, the team places foley sound effects and creates a music score, even though they are 3000 miles away from one another. Gabe then answers questions for the Creative COW audience on the features of Audio Design Desk, as well as what is in store for this DAW.
