San Antonio, TX (June 8, 2012)—The Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing and Texas Chapter will host engineer Chuck Ainlay speaking on the topic of “Quality Audio – The Future Is Now,” as part of its GRAMMY GPS: Texas Summer Speaker Series in San Antonio, TX on June 16.
The event will take place on Saturday, June 16 from 2 – 5 p.m. at the Studio CBC (located behind the Community Church, 2477 North Loop 1604 East in San Antonio, TX). Currently a member of The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing Steering Committee, Ainlay has recorded and mixed more than 200 albums, including work with country music artists Chet Atkins, the Dixie Chicks, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Miranda Lambert, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, George Strait, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, and Lee Ann Womack. In addition, Ainlay has placed his production and engineering stamp on projects with mainstream pop artists such as Mark Knopfler, James Taylor, Peter Frampton, Lionel Richie, Melissa Etheridge, Everclear, Chuck Leavell and Sheryl Crow. His work in 5.1 mixing has resulted in projects such as the 25th anniversary surround remix of Peter Frampton’s Frampton Comes Alive and the Grammy-winning 20th anniversary surround remix of Dire Straits’ Brothers In Arms.
“We strive to provide our membership the most up-to-date information on the current state of recording technology,” stated Maureen Droney, Sr. Executive Director of the P&E Wing. “Our session with Chuck Ainlay reinforces the Wing’s position to advocate and educate on how important the role of sound quality is in communicating the artist’s vision in recorded music. Chuck’s passion for this subject along with his extensive and ever-growing discography puts him in the perfect position to share a unique insight on these topics.”
The program will be followed by a catered networking reception, providing members the opportunity to continue the conversation. Admission is free for Recording Academy members. RSVP at [email protected].
