Los Angeles, CA, December 2017 – The METAlliance (Music Engineering and Technical Alliance) is presenting its 2018 immersive recording workshop March 10 & 11 at Capitol Studios in Hollywood. This exclusive event follows on the heels of a sold-out weekend at Avatar studios in NYC following AES 2017. “In Session with The Guys” attendees will participate and interact with the METAlliance founders in live recording and mixing sessions. By special arrangement, The METAlliance is taking over the historic Capitol Studios for the entire weekend.

Previous METAlliance Academy® events in Hollywood and New York City have been intense weekends covering every aspect of recording from mic technique and recording basic tracks to critical listening and advanced mixing. “These are real sessions and we are making real records,” commented co-founder Al Schmitt. “We love working very closely with a diverse group of students, pros, educators and recording beginners.”

The METAlliance offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience living history while learning invaluable techniques with the legendary master craftsmen who founded the METAlliance. Every attendee will participate in four sessions, each designed to provide different experiences in the recording process and led by the founding members. Space is very limited.

Amenities include lunch and giveaways.
