Brighton Electric has announced plans for a series of masterclasses grouped together under the banner ‘Learn How the Professionals Really Do It’.
The classes will take the form of week-long modules featuring daily theory and practical sessions led by producers, pro-audio engineers, session musicians and technicians. Running from 9:30am to 5.30pm, the courses will include lunch and refreshments.
The schedule is as follows: Drums in the Studio (25-29 July), detailing all the pro drummer/engineer needs to know about drums in the studio; Studio Engineering (1-5 August), in which a live band will help participants to find out more about mic placement, creative EQ, acoustics and more; Live Engineering (8-12 August), examining how to achieve a great live sound; Record Production (15-19 August), offering a masterclass in fast mixing, guiding and running a studio session; and How to Make Your Own Album (5-9 September), exploring how to get the best results from a home studio set-up.
“The courses are aimed at people who have been to college, completed a course or worked in project studios, and now want to move on – to learn how it’s really done,” said studio manager James Stringfellow. “There are lots of short-cuts and techniques that engineers employ that you will never learn unless you see them ‘hands-on’. You can read so much, hear about it via word of mouth, in a book, but there’s no substitute for actually getting your hands on the gear and hearing the difference in the results achieved.
“Our presenters/tutors will be top names in their specialities. We will be bringing in some great names. They are the best people in their respective fields and are genuinely excited at the prospect of passing on their knowledge and experience.”
