  • How Do I Get That Sound? Recording Workshop at Minnehaha Recording Company (Roosevelt)

    3.28.24 Update: The 5/29/24 class is full, but we added another opportunity the following week on Wednesday, June 5th! The Recording Workshop at Minnehaha Recording Company is a welcoming and inclusive class designed for attendees of all backgrounds and experience levels. It focuses on a software and gear-agnostic approach, making it suitable for anyone interested in record and mixing. The workshop's personalized approach involves gathering information from participants to tailor the class to their specific needs, covering topics like microphone placement, recording space optimization, decision-making in the recording process, and assistance with equipment and software recommendations. Attendees also have the opportunity to bring their own music tracks for discussion and troubleshooting, creating an intimate, interactive, and collaborative learning environment. No discounts. This class meets at Minnehaha Recording Studio:4501 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis MN 55406 Additional Information: Attendees do not have to have any specific background or experience. We may be demonstrating things in Pro Tools, but this is meant to be software (and gear) agnostic. We are not teaching a specific software at this time. We intend for this to be as beneficial to attendees as possible. Because of this, we’ll gather some info about you once you’ve signed up. Once we have this info from all participants, we can decide what might be best to focus on as class- specific styles of music, instruments, microphone placement, preamps/compression/EQ, mixing, working with artists, etc. Attendees will have the option to bring in a track of their own music or something they might have recorded to talk through the process and any challenges they may be having with it. Our goal is to keep this intimate, interactive, and collaborative. Instead of memorizing a list of high-end equipment or large format console signal flow like most audio schools teach, we want to discuss and refine things like: Basic microphone placement Making the most of your recording space Context in recording and mixing Mindful decision making and tone-seeking How do I get that sound? Is this tonal or arrangement decision actually helping the song? Assistance with any general equipment/software recommendations.
