About the Nashville Recording Workshop
The AES Nashville Section has developed a compelling two-day recording workshop and gear expo focused on getting the most from your studio environment. With thirteen-time GRAMMY Award winner, musician and studio owner Ricky Skaggs as the keynote address speaker, the AES Nashville section, in conjunction with Audio Engineering Society, Inc. is offering this two-day program on February 20 & 21, 2009 at the Musicianâ€™s Hall of Fame and Museum, www.musicianshalloffame.com. 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 todayâ€™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 â€œnetworkâ€? with their peers.
Subjects planned for the two-day event include: vocal and acoustic instrument miking, a singer/songwriter production roundtable, producing a dynamite demo, arrangement 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, when to call in a pro, a beats and loops workshop, and many more.
