The training weekend for engineers, producers and all other creative audio enthusiasts will take place at Deep Blue Sound in Plymouth on May 7/8. The result of a joint initiative organised by Prism Sound/SADiE, MPG education arm JAMES, the APRS and the UK Screen Association, Mic to Master’s first course will feature guest lecturers Tony Platt, Al Stone, Simon Heyworth and Alan O’Connell. Components will include a lecture by Platt on the music business tendency to search for the “next big thing” and a presentation by Stone about microphone techniques. O’Connell will explore the editing features and applications of Logic Flextime, while Heyworth will discuss the development and future of surround sound with reference to some of his own multi-channel projects. The programme will also include the opportunity to attend manufacturer sessions hosted by Prism Sound, SADiE, Focusrite, ATC and sE Electronics. Phil Harding, chairman of JAMES, commented: “This is a great opportunity for those who are passionate about music recording, mixing and mastering and want to learn more. These events give music-makers an opportunity to learn from professionals who are willing to share their expertise and impart some useful tricks of the trade. By holding them in JAMES-accredited Universities and colleges we are also able to fulfil JAMES’ remit of furthering links between Education and the Media Industries and make sure that many years of professional experience are not lost to future generations.” The cost to attend the event £150 for the two days. A limited number of free places will be available to students from participating universities and local colleges. Further courses will take place in October and November.
