Technical Workshop – “Building a Project Studio”

The AES Los Angeles Section is holding a Technical Workshop on Saturday, November 19, at The Beverly Garland Holiday Inn in North Hollywood, 9 AM-6 PM. The all-day workshop will cover the important facts - not myths - of outfitting a studio in a spare bedroom, a garage or a temporary environment. Attendees can also secure one-on-one demonstrations at a special “Vendor Showcase” that will feature recording and acoustic-treatment products.

Cost for the one-day workshop is $40 for AES members, $50 for non-members and $30 for students. Course materials, a buffet lunch and validated parking are included with registration. Participation is limited to 100 attendees.

Who should attend?

  • Musicians that need somewhere private to record their sessions
  • Engineers and producers planning to build a dedicated project studio
  • Music/dialog editors looking to design a personal-use post facility
  • Voice-over artists who prefer to work off-line

The Technical Workshop’s six technical presentations will cover various aspects of constructing and outfitting a home/project studio, and integrating the production hardware.
