As needed, I recommend the free video editor, MPEGStreamClip, for basic video editing and sound sync/de-muxing.
UPDATE: Windows-friendly video format for the Wizard here:

Here is the concert order for Monday and Wednesday this week.
NOTE: because of problems on one of my studio laptops, We will be using the computers from B25C and B25D in our performances (I will move them over at around 2pm). Since we will be alternating back and forth between the two systems during the performance (while one person is performing, the other can be setting up), I have assigned, below, which machine you will perform from (B25C = C; B25D = D). It shouldn't make much difference practically, but if you want to visit the machine for your performance tomorrow in advance of class, either to dump your project or test, you have that option. Let me know immediately if you have a conflict with this.
If you will be using your own computer (two have let me know this), there will be a separate audio connection available for this purpose.
Performance I (Monday):
Lai, Benjamin C
DeCorato, John D
Hachey, Adam C
Huang, Jeffrey D
Asiama, Obiora C
Moon, Seok Min D
Nilsson-Cole, Daniel C
Performance II (Wednesday):
Hwang, Paul C
Rego, Erik D
Nason, Robyn C
Lee, Jae Dong D
Cheng, Chelsea C
Hendler, Douglas D
Lai, Miasarah C
Choi, Hojin D
As discussed in class, here is a brief video showing the use of MIDI dummy clips in Live to store envelopes to automate parameters in another track. Here, as in class, I am automating a "fade out" of the master volume.
Here, too, is a more advanced look at the idea including the effects rack situation I mentioned today in answer to a question and, notably, the use of dummy audio clips.
And still more...

Since there has been both technical trouble and confusion about local and networked storage on the studio computers, particularly finding the location to hand in your assignments, I updated the login so it does not require a password, only that you login as "Guest". See the updated and accurate FAQ for details.
And for clarity, below is a screenshot of the currect Desktops, showing 1) The local Sound disk where you can create a working folder for yourself for ongoing work and 2) The Network Drive where you can hand in assignments. I will be keeping a close eye on things between now and Monday to be sure any technical problems have been corrected.
1. Ableton Live and dummy clips:
"Dummy clips, four different methods"
"Dummy clips tutorial"
"MIDI dummy clips over the IAC bus"
2. Subversion tools, three audio applications (Auto DJ, Scrambed Hacks, and Soundspotter)
