Audio professionals will learn how to produce their best-sounding masters through hands-on mentoring
Cambridge, MA – iZotope, Inc., a leading audio technology company, is now accepting applications for its first-ever Mastering Academy event for audio professionals taking place July 23-25, 2015. Led by iZotope’s Education Director and GRAMMY-nominated mastering expert Jonathan Wyner (David Bowie, Howie Day), with special guest Adam Ayan (Carrie Underwood, Pearl Jam), this intensive workshop combines small-group instruction with hands-on practice. Personalized mentoring from Jonathan will help take students’ mastering abilities to the next level.
The majority of the training takes place in iZotope’s brand-new, fully equipped mastering studio in Cambridge, MA. In this acoustically optimized listening environment, participants will learn advanced mastering techniques and best practices on a full range of state-of-the-art equipment. Students will analyze their own habits and patterns through feedback and insight from world-renowned mastering professionals. They’ll also add new pro audio skills to their arsenal, learn time-tested strategies for dealing with clients, and grow their network of pro audio peers.
“It’s a real thrill to be launching our first major learning initiative of this scale,” says Jonathan Wyner. “Education has always been a personal passion of mine, so I’m looking forward to working with students individually. I’ll be sharing strategies and techniques so they can tackle their next mastering project with greater confidence.”
The event includes tours of iconic musical sites in Boston including Symphony Hall and Berklee College of Music. Mastering Academy is the culminating event of iZotope’s “Mastering Education” month. Throughout July, iZotope will offer events and resources designed to help audio professionals achieve better-sounding mastering results in their studios.
