The Music Production Expo will feature educational seminars for budding producers and engineers at the MK Arena in Milton Keynes from 18-19 November.
The free-to-attend sessions will be hosted by Yamaha, Focusrite, Moog and Steinberg and other companies are set to deliver workshops and masterclasses throughout the show.
Among these, Source Distribution’s ‘How To Program A Synth’ seminars will show beginners how to start shaping sounds with a Moog Minimoog Model D, while leading software developer Bitwig Studio will host a masterclass, ‘Dissecting The Prodigy’, re-creating the band’s classic dance track ‘No Good’ with Bitwig’s stock sounds and virtual instruments.
Nektar will be showing its new Impact LX+ controller range at MPX and is to run sessions demonstrating how to integrate the new series with DAWs to unlock creative, hands-on music production.
For those serious about pursuing a career in the recording industry, JAMES (Joint Audio Media Education Support) will be running a seminar aimed specifically at career development, called ‘Striking The Right Chord With Employers’
Among the other highlights of this year’s show will also be a very special appearance by two legendary UK producers. Between them Tony Platt and Phill Brown have worked with everyone from AC/DC, The Rolling Stones and Bob Marley to Soweto Kinch, Bombay Bicycle Club and Maxi Jazz. MPX presents a rare opportunity to see the pair in conversation, covering topics including working with rock legends to modern production techniques.
