“Helping Creative People Make Better Recordings”
Immerse yourself in the art and technology of music recording – March 2-3, 2012.
NASHVILLE: The AES Nashville Section has developed a compelling two-day recording workshop and gear exposition focused on getting the most from your personal studio recording environment. AES Nashville, in conjunction with Audio Engineering Society, Inc. in New York is offering this two-day program on March 2 & 3, 2012 at a new location, the Rocketown event center at 601 4th Ave. South. Whether you are a recording musician, a songwriter laying down demos, or a professional engineer working in a personal production space, the Nashville Recording Workshop and Expo will provide essential insight and information geared to boost your career and elevate creativity.
Affordable and more powerful technology has made for a burgeoning market in recording equipment as songwriters, musicians and engineers create their own personal production spaces. Nashville has long been touted to have more personal studios per capita than anywhere in the country, and never has this been truer than in today’s DAW-centric recording environment. NRW+E presents a unique opportunity for personal studio owners to learn from the pros who put the Music in Music City, to check out the latest tools of the trade in the exhibition space and to “network” with their peers.
NRW+E presenters will include leading producers, engineers, acousticians, songwriters, and musicians sharing their professional techniques and knowledge in the areas of vocal and instrument miking, songwriters production of demos, arrangements and recording for better mixes, adding rhythm and spice with virtual tracks, collaboration across time and space, work environments that enhance creativity, practical acoustic and room treatment, and technical essentials.
Cosette Collier, Chairman of the Nashville Section of AES states, “We are thrilled to be able to offer the Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo once again. For two days, NRW brings musicians, songwriters, small studio owners, audio production students and home recording enthusiasts together with professional recording engineers and music industry professionals, not for the typical ‘How I Do It’ kind of sessions, but instead, ‘How YOU Can Do It.’ Inspiration is part of the experience, but “take away” information is key.”
Nashville Recording Workshop +Expo featured events and demos will appear in a live, on-stage setting on a regular schedule throughout both days, while exhibitor booths and displays complete AES Nashville’s own convention-type setting, featuring manufacturers representing all aspects of professional audio gear and services.
Collier continues, “Some of the best engineering and production talent will share practical techniques for producing great recordings and enhancing one’s creative production space, as well as how to get your music heard. Along with the workshops and demonstrations, the exhibits area lets attendees check out the latest in audio production hardware and software and explore new ways to enhance the creative process. The 2012 Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo continues to extend the focused content and involvement for all levels of audio production.”
