The spirit of community learning and sharing of recording and mixing ideas/tips shined greatly in the latest meet up of the Baltimore based Home Recording and Mixers Meet Up. The Home Recorders & Mixers Meetup is a workshop for musicians & artists that create at home and would like to improve their sound. The meetup provides an opportunity to learn, share techniques, and network.
Heading up the meet up is Brandon Lackey a producer, recording & mix engineer and former audio instructor. Brandon currently owns a studio in Parkville, Maryland (near Baltimore) called the Lineup Room.
The meet up was a great mix of various talents and professionals, amateurs and everybody in between who is interested in audio engineering, music business, sound production, music production, etc.
Talk of signal chains, microphones, EQ, pans, and compression, just to name a few, filled the modern classroom at Towson State University, north of Baltimore City. Included at the meeting - to name just a few - were Mo Jackson, Elsa Lankford, Ray Nathon, Jason Litten, Brian Meola, Ampslam, Darnell Michael, Paul Wunder and Ernest Goethe - each bringing to the table an unique set of suggestions, ideas, and good vibes.
Snacks were provided during the session which went well over two hours.
If your community does not have a similar group, Ampslam recommends you start something soon. It's easy and lots of fun.
