Coinciding with the AES convention in Vienna, Austria, respected producer/engineer George Massenburg hosted a recording workshop at MG Sound Studios, the largest independent audio recording complex in Austria. Massenburg concluded a series of workshops that were held in Rome, Milan, Munich and Vienna.
"It's all about the performance," Massenburg said after presenting his procedures for recording live with groups of musicians playing together in traditional fashion, while employing digital formats and processing with optimum resolution. In the course of the workshop, Massenburg delved into recent changes in the music industry, the decline of the established record label model, and new opportunities for innovative producers and engineers.
On tour with Massenburg were Bernard Frings of BEE Distribution, the European distributor of George Massenburg Labs (GML) products, and Thomas Riedmeier of CML Studio, the distributor of GML products in Germany.
