Vienna, Austria (July 9, 2012)—Grammy-winning engineer and platinum producer Steve Pageot showcased AKG’s P820 tube microphone during workshops at SAE’s New York City studio recently.
Invited back for the eighth consecutive year to speak with students of the School of Audio Engineering (SAE), Pageot discussed the intricacies of the music industry, from the music itself to the business side, encouraging students to follow their dreams while keeping on the correct path to success.
“When you graduate from SAE, you’re stepping into the real world, into the music industry, where you normally don’t get a second chance at a first impression,” stated Pageot, who presented four two-hour sessions. “With SAE, I am fortunate enough to take these students and prepare them for their dream career. Being able to showcase AKG’s leading microphone technology gives students hands-on experience that will last them throughout their careers. They were completely in awe for the sound emanating from the P820 and will take that experience to their clients in years to come.”
“We’re always pleased to have Steve at SAE, putting on production workshops for our senior students,” stated John Jansen, director of education, SAE. “His professional manner and production tips are always a benefit for our students as graduation approaches. The AKG P820 tube mic was a great addition to the class and was enjoyed by the students during the recording sessions.”
