Week-Long Seminars

Week-Long seminars are the the flagship event of Mix with the Masters with over 120 hosted since 2010. These special events take place at the wonderful La Fabrique Studios in the South of France, were participants spend time together with the guest speaker in a unique setting, perfect for learning and sharing ideas about music engineering and production.

Program

The process of greatness fostering greatness has long been recognized, and is the reason why our master classes are organized. The Mix With The Masters (MWTM) seminars have long been part of this tradition, offering an exchange of in-depth, first-hand studio experience along with knowledge that is unparalleled and not available anywhere else. Each seminar is conducted by one of the world’s top music mixers and producers, ready to share their professional secrets with a select group (typically 14 to 18 attendees) of carefully-screened, professional-level participants who come from all over the world.

One factor that contributes to the enormous success of our seminars is that all tutors share a deep and mutual understanding of the general MWTM ethos; a love of music, a comprehensive knowledge of music technology, and passion to grow our creative community through the teaching and helping of others. In part, participants are selected for their similarly positive dispositions, displaying eagerness and an open mind. The fact that our seminars last a full week is another major contributing factor to their success. Having such an extended and intimate amount of time together offers masters the time and space to go into real technical and emotional depth, while giving participants the opportunity to spend a prolonged amount of time watching a master at his peak, and ability to ask any questions they can think of.

The experts share exclusive, insider-information on any subject desired: detailed technical knowledge, how to run sessions, how to handle artists, managing a career, the maintenance of a positive attitude, building and sustaining success, and more. The tutors also assess the work of participants, by listening to their mixes, mixing recording sessions that they bring, and providing extensive feedback to each participant about where they are at, and how they can get to where they want to be. This invaluable input offers a unique advantage to those participants wanting to become world-class professionals in their own right.

Another primary factor in making the MWTM seminars exceptional is that they take place at La Fabrique, a large, comfortable, high-end recording studio thoughtfully designed in a picturesque historic building. Surrounded by huge, lush grounds in the south-east of France, you are amidst one of the world’s most beautiful environments during your stay. The secluded and idyllic location offers participants and tutors space to relax and recharge, far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and the all-demanding intensity of their more routine professional environments.

Because the courses are residential, the participants and tutors work, eat, socialize, and sleep in the same setting. While masters, and attendants, will at times opt to retire to their private quarters, there is ample opportunity for social interaction outside of the studio environment.

In short, for seven days participants are able to experience mixing with a master in both senses of the phrase, mixing and interacting with them.

Shawn’s work transcends the boundaries of genre, having shaped the sound of Grammy award-winning records by The War On Drugs, Kacey Musgraves and SZA. His work is driven by his curiosity to go where no engineer has gone before, using experimental techniques to achieve incredible sonic results. A small group of participants will be selected to join Shawn in the studio, where they will take part in an intensive program of mixing workshops directed by Shawn himself. He will also offer each participant tailored feedback on their own projects, allowing them to discover novel approaches to their work.

Testimonials

  • "I was expecting MWTM to be a special occasion and to help me move forward with music production. My expectations were blown away from day one. It turned out to be the best experience of my life and with music aside, was a life changing experience. It has been a source of inspiration for not only my career but my entire life everyday since."

    Peter Holz - Sidney, Australia
  • "I then saw that Al Schmitt was scheduled, and knew I needed to attend! My experience at La Fabrique was amazing….As an engineer, my skills set increased tenfold. I walked away with more information, and learned more fantastic techniques in that week then I would in 6 months of school. Thanks again Al, and everyone at MTWM. I’ll be back!"

    Paul Andrews - Colorado, USA
  • "This week changed drastically my way of mixing for the better. All the knowledge shared is still infusing more than a year later, and the bonds created within the group hold strong. All that in one of the slickest studios in the world! Definitely a must for anyone whose passion for people equals passion for music."

    Seb Riou - Grenoble, France
  • "Originally, I just wanted to get to know some of those great guys behind the desks of some of my favorite albums. Ended up with not only tons of impressions, insight in highest-end pro-productions, tips for everyday job-life.  Mixing and producing music is surely one, if the greatest, professions in the world."

    Toni Hinterholzinger - Nürnberg, Germany
  • "As a professional mixer I was curious which new tricks to get out from the masterclass but MWTM blew my mind. The days at La Fabrique changed my whole emotional approach towards the role in the studio and especially my mixing! I´m looking forward to going back !"

    Stephan Zeh - Mitterfeld, German
