This new edition goes further into depth on several topics, and also addresses new features and graphical changes which were introduced in versions 10.0.6 and 10.0.7 of the application.
You can read about the product further here:

The F&DM Dept. is pleased to announce the launch of a second Voice-Over Room for production students to record high-quality audio. It can be found in Communications, Room 134B, right across from the existing Voice-Over Room, and may be reserved online via Slugfilm’s Room Reservation System.
Like the current Voice-Over Room, this new Voice-Over Room also contains a studio-quality large-diaphragm microphone — ideal for recording voice-over audio — and powered speakers for playing back recordings.
However, this Voice-Room’s configuration is different from its older counterpart, as production students will need to bring their own audio recording device, compatible with balanced XLR connections and capable of providing 48V Phantom Power to the microphone.
For more information about the Voice-Over Room Equipment, the manufacturer’s webpage can be found here:
Students are encouraged to share any feedback on the space with Operations staff.
