STUDIO PRODIGY / SESSION ONE / RYAN HEWITT
Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (PST)
At STUDIO PRODIGY, the entertainment industry's best-of-the-best record producers, engineers, and more come together at Universal Mastering Studios in Hollywood, California to share their knowledge and expertise in an exclusive, intimate setting.
Award-winning engineer/producer Ryan Hewitt and world-class studio designer Hanson Hsu are upping the game of hands-on studio education with Studio Prodigy | Master Class Series, the ultimate experience in professional audio mentoring. Hear everything in a ZR Acoustics™ Virtuoso Environment as chart-topping engineers, artists and producers reveal their studio techniques and applications—in a real studio!
The Studio Prodigy series opens with a full-day master class on “Hybrid Mixing Techniques,” led by Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Avett Brothers, Brandi Carlile) at Universal Mastering Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Topics covered include studio setup and workflow optimization, building a mix and finding your sound. You will also hear the changes as a mix develops and learn why Hewitt chooses specific pieces of gear and plugins for specific situations.
Attendees will also expand their critical listening skills—the lifeblood of any engineer—in a clear, musical, acoustic environment designed by Hanson Hsu and featuring his trademarked ZR Acoustics, an approach that allows everyone in the room to essentially hear the same thing!
Studio Prodigy’s mission is to nurture the sharing of knowledge, foster creative and technical innovation, and preserve the recording community’s wealth of experience. Future sessions will explore the modern production techniques of Ross Hogarth, Vance Powell and many others.
