The next seminar is being held on Friday April 27, 2007.

Attendees of all ability and experience levels are welcome, as ATR covers a wide range of topics and will tailor each seminar to the particular needs and questions of the participants. More advanced participants will also learn subtle alignment tips and techniques that let you fine tune a tape recorder for that personal "dialed-in" quality needed for various types of music projects. Seminar participants will be given hands on experience aligning both mixdown and multitrack recorders.

These seminars are not geared toward any particular brand or format of recorder, and provide in-depth information and experience that applies to any analog machine. ATR even encourages attendees to bring their machines to the seminar if transportation is feasible.

The seminars are held from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM and include lunch.
