The METAlliance (Music Engineering and Technical Alliance) is presenting this year's educational event October 21 & 22, following AES in NYC.  "In Session with The Guys" attendees will participate and interact with the METAlliance founders in live recording and mixing sessions.  By special arrangement, The METAlliance will occupy the historic studios formerly known as Avatar and Power Station for the entire weekend.

Previous METAlliance Academy(r) events in Hollywood and New York City have been memorable. Participants got a close-up look at basic tracking and mic techniques; in the separate mixing sessions they were engaged in the processes in significant detail and participated in critical listening. "This was simply a great experience for all of us," commented co-founder George Massenburg.  "Working hard with a very diverse group of students, pros, educators and recording beginners."

The METAlliance offers a unique opportunity to experience living history while learning invaluable techniques with the legendary master craftsmen who founded the METAlliance. Every attendee will participate in four sessions, each designed to provide different experiences in the recording process and led by the founding members. Space is very limited.
