Tired of listening to muddy bass, eardrum piercing guitars and thin, sibilant vocals? Get to grips fast with EQ techniques, compression and a host of other functionality that will make your next music mix sound infinitely better.
You'll have an experienced producer to yourself for the whole session so we can tailor the key learning points around you for a most effective session. Learn various techniques required to record and mix music successfully, and how to create a CD master.
We'll arrange for a professional musician armed with an instrument to join the session so that you can have a 'hands on' recording experience - producing your very own end product to give to the recording artist.
