Press Release: After two years running Sample Magic’s Secrets of House Music Production weekend course and countless requests, we’re delighted to announce the launch of the inaugural Sample Magic Summer School – a five-day music production class for producers of all electronic genres, from house and techno to dubstep and beyond.
This in-depth course takes you through every aspect of electronic music production - from beats to bass, synths to vocals, FX to arrangement and mixdown to mastering - guided by expert Sample Magic tutors and sound-designers in the award-winning facilities of Alchemea College in the heart of London.
Led by producer and lecturer Bruce Aisher and with guest sessions from leading music industry professionals - including mastering engineers, music lawyers and Sample Magic co-founder Sharooz - you will leave with a greater understanding of the tools and techniques used to create cutting-edge dance music, as well as insights into the wider workings of the electronic music industry - from recording contracts and publishing to copyright and business know-how.
Hands-on learning is fundamental to the course, with plenty of time allocated for you to refine your skills with our tutors on hand to answer any questions. Not only does every attendee use their own music workstation, we will also get our hands dirty with classic outboard and learn studio techniques for recording vocals. We will also help you work on one of your own productions throughout the week - so that you leave with a finished, fully mastered, track.
All attendees also receive:
- A copy of The Secrets of House Music Production.
- A copy of Paul White’s The Producer’s Manual.
- £150 Sample Magic gift voucher.
- £150 Alchemea course credit voucher.
- Free mastering of a track of their choice at one of the world’s leading mastering houses.
- Continental breakfast each day.
- Tea and coffee throughout the day.
Note: We will mainly use Logic Pro for demonstrations and hands-on workshops, but the techniques are relevant to all DAWs. We will also spend some time with Native Instruments’ Massive.
When: Monday 3 September to Friday 7 September 2012
Price: £540 early bird price (will increase to £600)
