I think this is the course we were expecting to get last month. Here's the syllabus

https://www.coursera.org/course/musicproduction

Lesson 2: DAW (Editing)

Lesson 4: Dynamics Processing

A digression (but not by much).

Kevin (16) is in pre-calc this year and now they are discussing sine, cosine, amplitude, frequency, etc.
The teacher believes in using demonstrations whenever possible, so he was showing how the sound of a tuning fork looks on an oscilloscope, what happens if you strike two tuning forks with different frequencies at the same time, etc. Every time the teacher did this he would strike the tuning fork sharply against his own knee. The cute girl sitting next to Kevin kept wincing sympathetically. Finally Kevin looked over to her and said "I know. Hertz."

Ha! Nice. I like to say "That's 2.5 Hertz on the OuchDammit-O-Meter".
