Frank Gryner shows Pyramind students how it’s done

Pyramind: The Institute for Advanced Digital Audio Training (S.F.) held its first class session with new instructor/engineer Frank Gryner (Rob Zombie, Crystal Method, Methods of Mayhem), who showed the students miking and tracking techniques at Hibiki Studios (Mountain View, Calif.). Gryner recently flew up from L.A. with rap-metal band AWS to record a track for the band's upcoming Peace of Mind EP. “The recording session with Frank Gryner went great,” said Greg Gordon, Pyramind founder/president. “Having a high-caliber engineer and producer and AWS at the studio was perfect for the students. They really got a lesson in the real world of making a record.”

The majority of Pyramind's classes are held at the company's four-studio complex, with the exception of the upper-level class led by Gryner at Hibiki Studios. The multi-studio, state-of-the-art facility offers numerous workstation training labs outfitted with Mac-based digital audio production software and hardware.
