Host Note: Due to high demand, I've decided to give two sessions: the 1st 10 RSVP's will start at 3:00pm as the event states, the 2nd 10 (waiting list) will start at 6:00pm. Still a few slots left for the late session if you hurry!

How can you set up your home studio to quickly and repeatedly make great sounding demos? How can you speed through the technical setup in your DAW and leave more time for making music? We'll stay as hardware and software agnostic as possible in order to be relevant to the most people. If you have specific hardware or software questions, please comment in advance and/or bring your manual.

Topics we'll address in this 2-hour seminar include:
- Increasing efficiency of the pipeline between the 4 phases of recording
- Outboard gear basics
- Optimizing the signal path into your computer
- Using software templates
- Virtual instruments and other MIDI
- Using free VST plug-ins
- Virtual tracks for easy editing and mixing

A $10.00 suggested donation is requested, but not required, for this limited RSVP seminar. Pre-payment via Paypal during RSVP is preferred (or directly via [masked]). Your donation is completely tax deductible and a tax receipt for your records can be provided on request.

This one tends to fill up fast, so RSVP now! A few comments from previous attendees:

"Chris put on a great audio engineering 101 workshop. Laying out the stages of a recording session workflow was very valuable. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere and the music demos really showed the progression from a simple recording to finished master. I would recommend this to others if offered again." - Mitch Stein

"Chris did a great job of giving both an overview and some specific tips of how to produce a demo at home. He answered questions as he went along, and kept a good balance between looking at the general approach and giving useful details." - Scotia MacKay

"This was the most informative workshop I have been to in years...He shows you techniques that can save a newbie many hours of frustration. Thank You!" - Rickie Lee
