Old Lyme, CT (April 3, 2012)—Sennheiser will start a series of online webinars featuring Grammy-award winning recording engineers and producers this week.
The webinars intend to teach attendees how to use various recording techniques. The first webinar, which will focus on EQ and compression techniques, will be held free of charge on Thursday, April 5th, at 5:00 p.m. EDT, as a special introductory offering to program participants.
"Avoiding Too Much Equalization and Compression" will be hosted by David Thoener, Grammy-winning producer/engineer (Santana, AC/DC). Attendees will learn how to use EQ constructively; when to use compression, and when not to; and how to add the final sheen to the mix with gentle use of EQ.
The Online Recording Sound Academy borrows instructional elements from Sennheiser's on-site Recording Sound Academy seminars, such as tips and instruction on microphone selection and placement, recording and mixing techniques. The RSA webinars, which run between April and October, feature instruction by producers and engineers on a variety of recording topics, and also feature a Q&A session with the instructor.
