ABA Engineering Academy: March Engineering Webinar

March 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Featuring Frank Foti with Telco Alliance, and his good friend Andrew Scheps, one of the top recording engineers in the country.

Andrew has come a long way in his GRAMMY®-winning journey mixing records for such diverse artists as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Metallica, Jay-Z and many others. After graduating from the Recording Engineering Program at the University of Miami, he spent some time working for Synclavier, one of the first digital synthesizers / samplers / workstations, then on the road with Stevie Wonder (as a keyboard tech) and Michael Jackson (mixing live sound), before settling in LA where he worked his way up to the esteemed position he holds today among his peers. He now lives in London.

While Scheps main focus is recording award winning records, his techniques also apply to creating effective radio and television commercials as well. His favorite comment “It’s what comes out of the Speaker that counts” certainly applies to broadcasting.

Foti and Scheps will discuss items such as understanding digital audio, creating templates in your DAW, effective use of multitracks in your project, proper use of background music and effects, balancing the final mix, and getting the audience attention in the first few seconds of the commercial.

This webinar is for both engineers and production staff. Stations should make sure to have their production directors and anyone involved in producing audio files join in.
