New York, NY (June 21, 2012)—Two-time Grammy-winner Vlado Meller has announced the debut of a three-day, intensive, hands-on mastering course, set to launch in New York City this summer.
The first Vlado Meller Mastering Workshop (VMMW) course will be offered between August 1 and 3. VMMW’s curriculum is designed for professional mastering engineers, as well as working mixers, engineers and producers looking to broaden their understanding of the mastering process. Qualified students will have the opportunity to learn personally from Meller.
Meller’s 43-year career includes handling albums for Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Public Enemy, Jack White, Metallica, Andreas Bocelli, Oasis, Johnny Cash and Shakira.
Over the course of the three-day workshop, Meller will illustrate his personal techniques through before and after examples of past releases, detail the steps taken to arrive at finished results, and guide students as they work hands-on at the mastering console on their own program materials. Class-size will be limited to only a few students to allow for individualized attention.
VMMW will take place at Arf! Mastering in midtown Manhattan. Owned and operated by Grammy-nominated mastering engineer Alan Silverman, Arf! was selected by Meller for its signal path, monitoring and day-lit room.
“I welcome the opportunity to share 40-plus years of best practices with the next wave of mastering engineers and audio professionals.” says Meller, “Now is the time for me to let the younger generation benefit and learn from my experience.” Silverman adds, “VMMW gives students a rare opportunity to learn from an established master of the craft.”
