This is the Wikiversity workspace for the UNIT-E community.

From UNIT-E.CC: "We are a small, artist-owned record label with a goal of promoting artists which use Free Software or licence their music in such a way that creative use of the work is still possible after is out of the artists hands. Our goal is also to educate artists to use tools that allow this freedom and which are not locked down with restrictive user agreements. In addition, we also build tools which empower artists to do this."

UNIT-E as a learning/teaching community edit

The UNIT-E community is focused on several music genres and the use of Free Audio Software in its productions. All of the music is licenced using Creative Commons licensing and free production tools such as Audacity and Hydrogen drums. This educational unit is here to provide resources and a knowledge-base for Audio Engineering and to provide leadership in the area of Music Production and to explore the possibility of Jamming Online.
