SWEDEN: Hamburg, Copenhagen, Rome, Nottingham, London, Paris and Tokyo are all on the itinerary for the latest batch of Propellerhead Software-instigated Producers Conferences this June. In addition to offering networking opportunities, the sessions feature in-depth seminars and discussions "to help music producers take their music to the next level", reports PSN-e.

Produced locally by Propellerhead's exclusive distributors, the conferences - which follow a recent successful instalment at Los Angeles' King King club (pictured) - typically address issues including principles of mixing and how to get the most out of music software.

"Propellerhead and our partners are presenting these clinics to provide musicians with the knowledge they need to make music professionally," said Timothy Self, the software manufacturer's senior vice-president of sales and marketing. "The Producers Conference expounds on this mission by providing the opportunity for musicians to network, collaborate with other musicians, and learn tips and tricks from the pros, helping them to further realise their musical aspirations. We see these conferences becoming a regular part of ongoing outreach to our users."

The UK events - to be held at Nottingham's Confetti Studios (June 12th) and London's Access to Music (June 13th) - will benefit from the input of breakbeat pioneer Danny McMillan, techno artist/producer/DJ Paula Temple and Propellerhead product specialist James Bernard. Creative clinics will be paired with interactive classes for musicians using Propellerhead's Reason package, registered users of which can gain reduced entry on presentation of their Reason license card (_6 versus the full fee of _10).

The other Producer Conferences will take place in Hamburg and Copenhagen (both June 6th), Rome (8th), and Paris and Tokyo (both 16th).
