What’s more unique than making music out of the sounds from your own sonic world? Using everyday items and pre-existing sonic spaces, you can create a unique palette of colors and textures that no other producer has access to. This session will focus on how you can spice up your sounds with field recordings.

“Why is my mix not radio ready … yet?”
Susan Rogers
Susan Rogers
Producer, Engineer & Mixer

Have you ever asked yourself this question and struggled to describe why your mix is not ‘there’ yet? 

Before we even get started with exploring mixing techniques, we need to first talk about Technical Ear Training. It is crucial (and handy) to train your ears to not only identify frequency ranges, but also develop the right vocabulary to describe sound (aka … the issues). In this session, we will focus on how to develop core listening skills for mixing, and the tools to get these muscles in shape.

From Studio To Stage
Bad Snacks
Bad Snacks
Beatmaker, Artist & Multi-instrumentalist

From studio to stage! We all love an exciting live rendition of our favorite songs, but how do we spice things up live while keeping the essence of the song? More importantly, how do we determine which parts to keep and which parts to skip? In this session, we will go through things that you would and could do live that may not be in the studio version and how to make those decisions.
