- $180 for a five-hour basic music-recording workshop (a $600 value)
Michael White, a recording engineer with three decades of experience, claims two hours of the workshop with a live online class about recording engineering. That’s followed by three hours of recording in the studio with fellow engineer Shaul Dover, the studio’s owner. The two experts cover topics such as processing microphones for recording, optimizing sound with recording software, editing and processing recordings, and applying effects.
When John Storyk designed Sweatshop Studios, it wasn't just with his architectural expertise in mind; he also brought talent as an acoustician to the project. Thanks to that dual vision, its contemporary design and equipment please both the eye and the ear. Songwriting legends such as Gary Portnoy (the man behind the theme song for Cheers) have recorded music there; author Mary Pope Osborne of the Magic Tree House series created an audiobook in the studio. In addition to welcoming professionals, Sweatshop's recording engineers and other seasoned staff lead workshops for novices.
