So… member (and friend) Emplexador pointed to me during the Italian night, that Mr. Tony Platt & Mr. Elliott Randall are going to teach microphone placement for guitar recording! It is going to be held in London. I thanked quickly Emplexador and booked – paid instantly! – the two days training in London, Air Studios. Next November

Who should attend the AIR Studio Weekenders?

Attendees will be presented a diverse, informative, educational and entertaining programme of technical seminars, practical demonstrations and listening sessions in AIR’s Lyndhurst Hall from some of the UK’s most experienced producers, engineers and musicians.

The guitar recording masterclass is designed for guitarists and those with an interest in sound recording or music production. It’s suitable for anyone who wants to gain a thorough insight into all the techniques, skills and processes required to obtain professional, studio-quality guitar recordings across a broad range of genres.
