Tel Aviv, Israel (March 11, 2009)–Waves Audio has announced the latest in its series of educational events: a tour featuring appearances by Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum producer/engineer/mix engineer Tony Maserati.
The tour, entitled “In the Multi-Platinum Mix with Tony Maserati,” will offer an intimate face-to-face with Maserati, where he’ll be sharing his studio techniques and approach to mixing. Throughout the spring, the tour will take Maserati and the Waves crew to several cities across North America, including an appearance at L.A.’s Village Recording Studios.
Over the course of his career, Tony Maserati has been behind the board for some of the biggest names in pop, hip-hop and R&B. With over 250 releases under his belt, he is widely regarded as a primary architect of the sounds associated with New York R&B production since the mid-90s. His resume is extensive: Beyoncé, Black Eyed Peas, Jason Mraz, Mary J. Blige, David Bowie, 2Pac, Britney Spears, John Legend and many more have turned to Maserati.
Together with Waves product specialists, Maserati will demonstrate his use of Waves plug-ins, including The Tony Maserati Collection, a set of plug-ins developed in collaboration with Waves. Maserati worked with the Waves R&D team to create this collection of six application-specific plug-ins that capture Maserati’s personal production, engineering and mixing style and his trademark sound, according to the manufacturer.
Maserati will bring a session of a well-known artist to each event, to offer a glimpse into his decision-making process, unveiling the way he approaches a mix.
“This is a great opportunity,” says Maserati. “I’m looking forward to sharing my studio techniques with up-and-coming engineers, producers and songwriters. It’s going to be a blast.”
