Sit in the Console Sweetspot "In Session with The Guys"

The METAlliance (Music Engineering and Technical Alliance) is presenting the second In Session event, February 19-20, 2011 in NYC at famed Avatar Studios. "In Session with The Guys" attendees will participate and interact with the METAlliance founders in live recording and mixing sessions. By special arrangement, The METAlliance will occupy the historic Avatar Studios for the entire weekend.

The inaugural 2010 METAlliance event in Hollywood at the historic studios in the Capitol Records tower was a resounding success. Participants got a close-up look at basic tracking and mic techniques; in the separate mixing sessions they were engaged in the processes in significant detail and participated in critical listening. "This was simply a great experience for all of us," commented Phil Ramone. "Working hard with a very

diverse group of students, pros, educators and recording beginners."

The METAlliance offers a unique opportunity to experience living history while learning invaluable techniques with the legendary master craftsmen who founded the METAlliance. Every attendee will participate in four sessions, each designed to provide different experiences in the recording process and led by the founding members. Space is very limited.

Recording:
• Session One: Phil Ramone and Al Schmitt
• Session Two: Elliot Scheiner and Ed Cherney

Mixing:
• Session Three: Chuck Ainlay
• Session Four: "In the Box" home studio mixing with Frank Filipetti and George Massenburg in a home studio environment

Amenities include catered food and a special private gathering February 18th for those who register by January 18, 2011.
