Ed Cherney spoke at the conclusion of the weekend, "This was truly a special and memorable event. The way much of our music is created today, not many people get the opportunity to work in a large, great sounding professional studio, with the whole band playing at the same time. We had a spectacular weekend of music, learning and fun. Everyone left with new tools, experience and enthusiasm."
"In Session with The Guys" attendees participated and interacted with the METAlliance founders in live recording and mixing sessions. The Academy provided a unique opportunity to experience living history while learning techniques with the legendary master craftsmen who founded the METAlliance. Every attendee participated in four sessions, each designed to provide different experiences in the recording process.
"The METAlliance Academy is simply a great experience for all of us," commented George Massenburg. "Working hard with a very diverse group of students, pros, educators and recording beginners."
