EQ is proud to present a live online Master Class hosted by acclaimed author, musician, and EQ Executive Editor Craig Anderton. Following up his immensely successful mastering webinar, Craig's new Master Class shows how to get more out of signal processors than you ever thought possible. While centered around the latest generation of audio plug-ins, most of these tips and techniques apply to hardware as well.
In this hour-long Master Class, you’ll learn practical, hands-on, cutting-edge info—underlined by a constant stream of video and audio examples—on topics like the following:
- All about side-chaining—from problem-solving to dance mixes
- Head trips: New dimensions in stereo placement
- Creative ways to use vocoders
- Convolution: Why just settle for reverb?
- Secrets of parallel processing
- Guitar amp simulator techniques for electronic drums and keyboards
- Exploiting synthesizers as signal processors
- Better guitar amp sounds through restoration software
- New applications for dynamics control
- Creating the ultimate wa-wa
- “Playing” signal processors with MIDI control
…and much more—LIVE Master Class attendees were able to participate in real-time, live Q&A with Craig after the main presentation and were entered to win a McDSP Emerald Pack Native version valued at $1495, or a TC Electronic PowerCore X8 unit valued at $1745!
