Attendees hear everything in a ZR Acoustics Virtuoso Environment as chart-topping engineers, artists and producers reveal their studio techniques and applications—in a real studio. The Studio Prodigy series opens with a full-day master class on “Hybrid Mixing Techniques,” led by Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Avett Brothers, blink-182 ) at Universal Mastering Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Topics covered include studio setup and workflow optimization, building a mix and finding your sound. Attendees will also hear the changes as a mix develops and learn why Hewitt chooses specific pieces of gear and plugins for specific situations. There will also be focus on critical listening skills—the lifeblood of any engineer—in a clear, musical, acoustic environment designed by Hanson Hsu and featuring his trademarked ZR Acoustics, an approach that allows everyone in the room to essentially hear the same thing.
