Guitarist for Converge and producer extraordinaire Kurt Ballou is preparing a two-day workshop to be aired live online by CreativeLive. The workshop will be held on 2 and 3 February 2014, 9am-4pm (Los Angeles time) and is completely free to sign up.


The press release reads: “In this two-day course, prolific producer Kurt Ballou will take you behind-the-scenes of Godcity Studios to show you exactly how the magic happens. This all-access studio pass will immerse you in every aspect of Kurt’s distinctive sound — from choosing and setting up gear, to tracking and mixing.


“Kurt will show you the basic and advanced techniques he uses in his studio every day, and teach you how to apply them to your own recording — regardless of whether you’re working in a studio or at home with a DIY setup. Using anecdotes from his years behind the board, Kurt will also teach you his best practices for working with bands to extract the best and most inventive sounds.


The producer wrote on his facebook page: “Is there anything in particular you want me to cover? I’ll post responses to a few questions over at geargods.net before the class airs. Thanks!” So feel free to visit his page and post your question on the relevant thread.

Thanks for dropping in!
