‘Vlado Meller Mastering Workshop’ Is Announced, Debuting In New York City, Summer, 2012

New York, NY – June 20, 2012: One of the world’s most accomplished mastering engineers, two-time GRAMMY-winner Vlado Meller, has announced the debut of the Vlado Meller Mastering Workshop (VMMW,) a three-day intensive hands-on course, set to launch in New York City this summer. The first course will be offered between August 1 and 3.

Qualified students will have the opportunity to learn personally from Meller. His 43-year career includes albums for Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Public Enemy, Jack White, Metallica, Andreas Bocelli, Oasis, Johnny Cash, and Shakira.

VMMW’s intensive curriculum is designed for professional mastering engineers, as well as working mixers, engineers, and producers looking to broaden their understanding of the mastering process.

Over the course of the three-day workshop, Meller will illustrate his personal techniques through before and after examples of past releases, detail the steps taken to arrive at finished results, and guide students as they work hands-on at the mastering console on their own program material. Class size will be limited to only a few students to allow for individualized attention.

VMMW will take place at Arf! Mastering in midtown Manhattan. Owned and operated by GRAMMY-nominated mastering engineer Alan Silverman, Arf! was selected by Meller for its world-class signal path, accurate monitoring, and spacious, day-lit room.

“I welcome the opportunity to share 40+ years of best practices with the next wave of mastering engineers and audio professionals.” says Meller, “Now is the time for me to let the younger generation benefit and learn from my experience.” Silverman adds, “VMMW gives students a rare opportunity to learn from an established master of the craft.”

Tyler & MC Tigue – 133rd AES Convention Co-Chairs On Track For A Blockbuster Event

SAN FRANCISCO: Co-Chairing an AES Convention takes technical and interpersonal skills, an ability to juggle an infinite stream of details, an aptitude for delegating AND, the capacity for keeping a close eye on your day job. Clearly gifted with these indispensable talents, AES 133rd Convention Co-Chairs Valerie Tyler and Jim McTigue have returned to the scene of their 2010 success. Plans are well underway for the Convention set for October 26-29 at SF’s Moscone Center.

Both Tyler and McTigue take great pride in their contributions to this gargantuan undertaking. Like all the volunteer Chairs, they share a deep sense of accomplishment in producing what appears to attendees and exhibitors to be an effortless, efficient and smoothly running ‘clockwork’ event. Their goal is to perpetuate that ‘never let ‘em see you sweat’ cliché.

Since joining the AES in 1993,Valerie Tyler has served in a variety of Convention committee positions including Workshops, Special Events, Tutorials & Master Classes. Her extensive academic career includes music studies at UC Santa Cruz, music/recording industry studies at San Francisco State University, and electronic music, digital audio, digital video, web design, and graphic design studies at College of San Mateo where she currently holds the position of Webmaster. Tyler has also served as an audio editor and as a freelance live sound engineer.

A 35-year+ veteran of the acoustics, broadcast, and professional audio industry, Jim McTigue began his career at NY’s legendary A&R Recording Studios. He has served in technology and management roles for such leading firms as Altec Lansing, API, Broadcast Technology, Euphonix, Radix Systems and Chief Engineer at NY’s famed Sigma Sound Studios. McTigue is currently director, Audio Hardware Development for Avid Technology. His broad education includes engineering degrees from the Polytechnic Institute of NYU and the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Co-Chairing his 2nd consecutive AES SF Convention, he is currently serving on the AES SF Section Committee.

“Our Committee Chairs devote a vast amount of time and energy to AES Conventions,” says Executive Director, Bob Moses. ” In doing so they earn the respect and appreciation of their peers and the knowledge that they are performing an invaluable service for the industry. We are all indebted to Jim McTigue and Valerie Tyler for their extraordinary contribution to this massive venture. We are confident that they and their Co-Chairs are creating an unforgettable Convention experience.”
