Robby Sinclair of Lazer CakeNew York (February 2, 2011)--The band Lazer Cake will be tracked and mixed by the METAlliance "In Session with The Guys" event, Feb. 19-20, 2011 at Avatar Studios.
Lazer Cake is a quartet that plays "short, sexy, indie-pop songs with hints of The Cars, The White Stripes, Talking Heads and Justin Timberlake."
"In Session with The Guys" attendees will participate and interact with the METAlliance founders in live recording and mixing sessions with Lazer Cake, as well as sessions with jazz vocal sensation Kat Edmonson, who has been described as "equal parts Billie Holiday and Bjork" in All About Jazz.
Space is said to be extremely limited and sessions will be limited to only eight attendees for each phase of the recording projects. All attendees are entered in a drawing for a free Nuendo 5 Education Edition provided by Steinberg, including the NEK (Nuendo Expansion KIt) which provides all the Cubase Music Tools. Other products provided by the METAlliance Pro Partners will be used througout the sessions.
As in the inaugural 2010 METAlliance event in Hollywood at Capitol Studios, participants get a close-up look at basic tracking and mic techniques. In separate mixing sessions, they are presented with the detailed procedures in significant detail, plus experience in-depth critical listening workshops.
The METAlliance offers an opportunity to learn techniques with its founders--Chuck Ainlay, Ed Cherney, Frank Filipetti, George Massenburg, Phil Ramone, Elliot Scheiner and Al Schmitt. 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.
• Session One: Phil Ramone and Al Schmitt
• Session Two: Elliot Scheiner and Ed Cherney
• Session Three: Chuck Ainlay
• Session Four: "In the Box" home studio mixing with Frank Filipetti and George Massenburg in a home studio environment
