Vera Recording Studio Workshop Series
A six part series consisting of sequential five hour classes. Vera’s recording workshop series covers a recording session from start to finished product. Beginning with the basics, our professional studio engineers will explain Vera Studio’s mixing board, signal flow, and standard microphone techniques as well as studio etiquette, organization and maintenance. Students with experience will especially enjoy discussions about our recording equipment such as our microphones, preamps and ProTools HD set up.
Then expand on what you learned in the intro class by taking part a full recording session. This workshop will teach you the process of setting up and tracking a full band in Vera’s Studio! Subjects will include a deeper look at all of the topics covered in the intro class with an emphasis on microphone techniques, signal flow, and critical listening.
A series of classes to get started, a lifetime to master! Getting a good balanced mix in the DAW environment is one of the most rewarding parts of recording. One of Vera’s experienced Audio Engineers will walk you through the basic setup of a mix and discuss the many ways you can reach your desired goal. Discover how critical listening for the music’s genre, EQ and compression techniques, bussing/aux sends and special effect plugins all combine to create a “master ready” mixdown.
