Converge's Kurt Ballou isn't just a guitarist, he is a renowned producer, churning out hits from the likes of High on Fire, Kvelertak and Skeletonwitch to name a few. And, come this February, he'll be holding a two-day class to teach you how you can do what he does, no matter your set up.
On February 3 and 4, 2014, Gear Gods, the only website for musicians in the heavy music community, will team up with creativeLive, the internet’s leading purveyor of free live online workshops taught by world-class experts, to present Studio Pass: Kurt Ballou! Here's Kurt to tell you a little more about it:
As mentioned in the video, Kurt 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. You'll get the basic and advanced techniques he uses in his studio every day, and he'll 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 two-day workshop will take place from 9AM to 4PM PST on Monday, February 3, and Tuesday, February 4. You can enroll in the course for FREE right now! You can also pre-purchase anytime access for $79 so that you can watch or reference the workshop as often as you please. These workshops are going to be UNMISSABLE for anyone looking to learn about recording extreme music, so make sure you don’t miss out!!!
