TCHAD BLAKE

One-Day Mixing Seminar

sold out

Join multiple Grammy Award-winning mixer and producer Tchad Blake for an exclusive One-Day Seminar in New-York City.

 

Tchad Blake has been an impressive discography, having worked with numerous artists and musicians, including Arctic Monkeys, State Radio, Apartment 26, Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel, Pearl Jam, Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow, Crowded House, Tracy Chapman, The Dandy Warhols, The Black Keys, U2 and The Pretenders, amongst many others. Blake to date has won five Grammy Awards, including Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical and Best Rock Album for Sheryl Crow's The Globe Sessions (1998), Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for his work on Suzanne Vega's Beauty & Crime (2007), and two Grammys for his work with The Black Keys on 2010's Brothers. He is well known in the industry for creating original sonic textures (often with unorthodox gear, such as everyday objects like wooden pipes, metal cans, and cardboard boxes), and constantly shifting mixes, as well as his use of binaural recording, resulting in a unique sound. Since Blake’s move to the UK in 2001, he worked for a number of years at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, engineering, mixing, but also expanding into producing, clocking up credits like Gabriel, Travis, Phish, Tracy Chapman, and Bonnie Raitt. 

Although Blake made his name by pushing the sonic limits of the analogue domain, since 2005, he has worked almost entirely in the box. He has a Protools HD rig with an Icon D Control, plus a choice selection of loads of guitar pedals and a few pieces of outboard. Blake comments, “I’m 99.8% in the box now, as opposed to mixing off tape through a vintage API console at The Sound Factory or the very large SSL at Real World Studios in the past. The 0.2% represents instruments I add or pedal-style effects I use.”

This seminar will be held in a Studio in New-York City TBA.

Marroquin is one of the 21st century’s most successful mixers. His achievements have been recognized with nine Grammy Awards, graced nearly 250 million albums worldwide, over forty #1 albums and one hundred Top 10 albums on The Billboard 200, as well as having an interactive mixing exhibit in 2008 at the Grammy Museum, named after him and featuring material supplied by him to name only a few of his recent accolades.

Marroquin prides himself in working with a wide variety of artists and music styles, which is exemplified by a credit list featuring Alicia Keys, Whitney Houston, Pink, John Mayer, Shakira, Maroon 5, Ludacris, Duffy, Buno Mars, Lana Del Rey, Usher, Cee Lo, Pitbull, Rihanna, Flo Rida, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Christinia Aguilera, Linkin Park, Imagine Dragons, The Rolling Stones, and to name a few.

It’s no exaggeration to describe Paul Epworth as the most influential British producer of his generation. Nor is it hyperbole to also call him the most successful and in-demand, too. His recent production roll-call reads like a must-have list for right-minded music fans: Adele’s 21, Florence + The Machine’s Ceremonials and Lungs, The Big Pink’s Brief History Of Love and Future This, Foster The People Torches, Cee-Lo Green’s The Lady Killer, Friendly Fires’s Pala, Plan B’s The Defamation Of Strickland Banks, notably the massive, definitive Stay Too Long single…

MICHAEL BRAUER

One-Day Mixing Seminar

 LOCATION   This seminar will be held at a Studio in Paris to be confirmed.

 DATE   JUNE 7, 2016 from 9AM to 7PM

 PARTICIPATION FEE   $769 including lunch with Michael Brauer. Accommodation NOT included.

Michael Brauer is one of the founding members of the seminar program. Brauer has an impressive back catalogue, having worked with Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Coldplay, John Mayer, Ash, My Morning Jacket, Ben Folds, Eric Clapton, Prefab Sprout, Leonard Cohen, Pet Shop Boys, Dream Theater, Elle King, James Bay and Calle 13 to name but a few. He has won seven Grammy Awards, including best engineered album for John Mayer's "Battle Studies". He currently works in Electric Lady Studio B in New York, where he works with an SSL 9080 J-series desk, as well as an vast collection of outboard. The outboard is at the heart of Brauer’s approach to using compression and EQ, that is so elaborate that Brauer has given it a trademarked name: “Brauerize”. The mixer explains that it, “is the combination of a few different compression techniques, including multi-bus, parallel and post-fader send/return compression, which focus on mixing into compression, allowing me to ride instruments, vocals, and my entire mix, into the sweet spot.”

Brauer’s ‘Brauerizing’ technique, of parallel compression of vocals and/or instruments is complimented with his heavy use of software, which as he describes, allows things that one cannot get from the hardware, such as “great de-essers and fixing tools”.

Maserati has won several Grammy Awards, and is one of the few mixers with a Waves Signature Plugin Series—The Tony Maserati Collection—turning his name into a global brand.

Maserati is known for his hybrid analogue/digital setup approach that he has favoured for many years, as well as his effects comprising of a combination of the best of digital, (using plugins by Waves, UAD, Soundtoys, Softube and many others), and the best of analogue, by the likes of Alan Smart, Telefunken, Shadow Hills, Pendulum, Universal Audio, Chandler, Neve and Urei. Analogue gear continues to prove invaluable for Maserati because of, he says, “the headroom.” However, Maserati also advocates the portability of 21C digital equipment, and regularly mixes while travelling, using a laptop with Sennheiser HD600 headphones, Pelonis Model 42s speakers, and a Black Lion DAC.

Andy Wallace has had a successful and active career, with many classic records to his name such as Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Buckley, Slayer, Alice Cooper, Prince, The Cult, Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses, Sheryl Crow, Sonic Youth, Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney, Rush, and Rage Against The Machine.

Wallace has been awarded eight Grammy Award nominations and one Grammy Award, in 1999, for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical (shared with Tchad Blake and Trina Shoemaker) for Sheryl Crow’s The Globe Sessions. During the last fifteen years Wallace has focused almost exclusively on mixing, using most often SSL desks.

His trademark approach of aggressive rock music mixing, is characterized by larger-than-life guitars and a huge and tight, well-defined low-end. At the same time, Wallace can also be exceptionally lyrical and delicate in his approach, the most famous example being his production and mix of Jeff Buckley’s Grace (1994). Wallace’s techniques are shrouded in a certain mystery as the well-established mixer has only ever give two significant interviews during his long spanning career, yet continues to reign as one of the greats.
