Description of the Analog Workshop from Larry Crane:
Even with the maturing of digital multitrack as an accepted recording platform, many people look back nostalgically at the history of tracking music to tape, and specifically multitrack analog recording. In this course I will be tracking two songs by the group Speedy Ortiz while demonstrating the workflow and process of running a totally analog-based session. Attention will be paid to maximizing track usage,keeping the session productive, and utilizing the best techniques of old school engineering and modern production. Music will be captured on a Studer A827 16 Track 2” “Gold Edition” tape deck and mixed down to 1/4” or 1/2” Ampeg ATR102 decks. This course will demonstrate what a real world, analog-based recording session is all about.
