This is open to intermediate recording engineers that wish to learn to analog recording techniques. Session will be taught by Lenise Bent.
This second workshop will include:
In this workshop we will be taking the next step in analog tape recording, mixing to tape using a large format recording console and outboard gear.
We will be at the world-class Sphere Studio in Burbank, CA. SoundGirls will have a quick hands-on review of the first workshop, “24 trk. analog tape recording”, in which you will each thread the 2″ 24 trk. tape machine and run the transport.
We will also review:
- Tape alignment and tones
- Cleaning and de-gaussing of the heads and tape path
- Editing and splicing of tape and leader.
- Definition of “safe”, “sync” and “record” modes on the tape machine
- Arming and recording onto the tape machine
- Proper labeling protocol of the tape box (metadata)
We will use the song recorded to 24 trk. tape from the first workshop to practice mixing down to 1/2″ 2 trk. stereo. This will include:
- Alignment and recording tones on the 2 trk. tape machine
- Mixing through a large format recording console using automation
- Using the patchbay to access outboard gear in the rack
- Editing and splicing mixes together.
