In this weeks episode, I am joined by Paul Shimmons (band director, music tech in education blogger, and podcaster). We have a great time talking about our various workflows for reading, editing, annotating, and organizing our PDFs. This episode was recorded shortly after the announcement of iOS 11 which will bring a lot of new productivity features to the iPad. Naturally, we had to discuss these announcements and how they might reshape our PDF workflows next fall.

Digital Organization Tips for Music Teachers, Chapter 5 - Scanning, with Guest Chris Russell (Season 2, Episode 5)

In place of a formal introduction, Chris and I launched straight into a discussion about our recording setups and how to successfully record using iOS devices*. Then we jump into over an hour of action packed information on scanning. Scanning documents. Scanning music. Scanning with scanners. Scanning with phones. OCRing text. Automatic handwriting recognition. Automatic music notation recognition. Doing it all on PCs, tablets, phones, you name it.

 *This discussion was eye opening for me and I am glad I tried recording into my iPad for this episode but I would like to note that ...

1) Ferrite's touch editing interface was cumbersome enough for me that I ended up just doing it all in Logic Pro

and

2) Something about this setup resulted in a bit of a distorted sound on my voice which I did my best to clean up but apologize for.
