By Guest |
Disc Makers, the nation's leading independent media manufacturer, is teaming up with Mix Magazine to present a new seminar on audio mastering entitled: "Sounding Your Best: Mastering Tips and Techniques from the Pros."
The free seminars, targeted towards indie musicians and studio professionals seeking help in creating a great master, will take place in April in seven Disc Makers locations - New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Berkeley (CA), Seattle and the company headquarters in Pennsauken, NJ/Philadelphia area. The seminar in Puerto Rico will be held on May 2, 2007.
The seminars will begin at 6:30pm local time. Space is limited and early signup is encouraged. To register for a seminar, or to get seminar location addresses, visit www.discmakers.com/engseminar or call 1-866-534-3610.
Disc Makers and Mix Magazine developed this instructional seminar to give musicians an 'insider's view' on mastering. Each seminar will be presented by one of Disc Makers' SoundLab™ mastering engineers, who will be sharing dozens of tips and useful ideas. Participants will have a chance to meet and greet the SoundLab professionals, and participate in a post-seminar Q&A session.
"Sometimes mastering is viewed as a 'cure-all' to an improperly mixed or engineered album," said Paul Elliot, Disc Makers' Chief Mastering Engineer. "This seminar is a great chance for both the indie musician, and professional recording engineer, to learn what we need from them to produce a phenomenal final product."
The local seminar dates and locations are as follows:
April 11th - New York City and Berkeley (CA)
April 12th - Pennsauken, NJ/(Philadephia area) and Los Angeles
