The METAlliance (Music Engineering and Technical Alliance) will present its second "In Session" event on February 19-20, 2011, in New York City at Avatar Studios. "In Session with The Guys" attendees will be able to interact with the METAlliance founders in live recording and mixing sessions. By special arrangement, the METAlliance will occupy Avatar Studios' facilities for the entire weekend.
Every attendee for "In Session with The Guys" will participate in four sessions, each designed to provide different experiences in the recording process and led by the founding members:
Recording, Session One: Phil Ramone and Al Schmitt; Recording, Session Two: Elliot Scheiner and Ed Cherney; Mixing, Session Three: Chuck Ainlay; Mixing, Session Four: "In the Box" home studio mixing with Frank Filipetti and George Massenburg in a home studio environment.
The inaugural 2010 METAlliance event took place in Hollywood at the historic studios in the Capitol Records tower. Participants got a close-up look at basic tracking, mic techniques and mixing sessions, where they could participate in critical listening. "This was simply a great experience for all of us," says Phil Ramone, "working hard with a very diverse group of students, pros, educators and recording beginners."
Amenities include catered food and, for those who register by January 18, 2011, a special private gathering on February 18.
Space is very limited. For more information and registration forms, visit www.metalliance.com.
