some of you may be interested in this free online course about music production by Berklee college, it's fairly basic stuff but presented in a rational and engaging way. The course will last 6 weeks, you'll have to fill some assignments and you'll get a frequency certification at end if you pass the various tests. It's not too much time consuming, I've gone trough the first lesson videos and filled the quizzes in less than 2 hours.


Here's the syllabus of the whole course:
