Focusrite Audio Engineering has announced a recording competition to coincide with the company’s 25th Anniversary and 29 years since the creation of the Focusrite brand.
The winners of this once-in-a-life time recording opportunity will record a track with Grammy award-winning producer Guy Massey at the world-renowned Air Studios in London.
Massey has worked with stars ranging from The Beatles to the Manic Street Preachers and Ed Sheeran and will help the lucky winners create their perfect track before it is recorded and mixed. The completed song will then be sent to one of London’s leading mastering engineers.
The prize includes an all-expenses-paid weekend at Air Studios for the winner and three band mates. Air Studios is home to Focusrite’s original Rupert Neve designed recording consoles.
Focusrite has also released a new documentary about its history featuring the company’s first recording console, the Focusrite Forté, the predecessor to the streamlined Studio Console. Only ten Studio Console’s were ever made and six remain in operation to this day.
