Collaborative and networking initiative Beyond The Mix is holding a one-day seminar on October 7th 2022 to showcase mixing techniques to aspiring producers and engineers.
The seminar will take place at PMC Studio London, PMC’s fully equipped Dolby Atmos demo facility. Speakers will include GRAMMY and BRIT Award winning producer and engineer Heff Moraes, who is PMC’s brand ambassador and an expert on mixing music in the Dolby Atmos format. Also on the panel are Los Angeles-based mix engineer Ross Newbauer, who works closely with the renowned mixer Joe Zook, and UK recording and mix engineer Will Reeves, who began his career assisting Heff at Tape London and has since worked with artists such as Will.i.am, Migos, Bree Runway and Wes Nelson, and achieved Gold and Platinum selling records.
The brainchild of Will Reeves (Founder) and Stephan Grainger (Creative Director), Beyond The Mix was launched during the first COVID lockdown as a way for those interested in all things audio to connect and share information. This educational and interactive platform is open to upcoming music producers and audio engineers who want to be part of a like-minded community.
“This is the first physical event Beyond The Mix has run and we are very excited to be holding it in PMC’s amazing demo facility,” Will Reeves says. “When I left university, I struggled to find the right people to help. We’ve created a platform where anyone can ask a question and get direct answers from industry professionals.
“Our aim at this event is to cover a range of subjects so that people who are new to the industry can learn about producing and mixing in stereo, 5.1 and Dolby Atmos from those who are actively involved in the process. Topics such as file preparation and organisation will be high on the agenda, but we will also be discussing ways to get started in the business and studio etiquette.”
Heff Moraes adds: “Mixing is not a dark art, but it does require proper organisation, especially now that so many projects are being prepared for release in immersive audio formats. As leaders in this field, PMC has a great deal of knowledge – both about mixing techniques and about choosing the right monitoring for Dolby Atmos studios. I personally feel it is very important that we teach aspiring engineers good techniques from the outset so that they can avoid making the mistakes others have made.”
