The Recording Workshop

Lectures from The Recording Workshop

  • In July 1980, I attended The Recording Workshop, a 4-week intensive school for recording and engineering in Chillicothe Ohio.

  • The school is a complex of recording studios located in Chillicothe Ohio.

  • I attended the "Early Summer" session, with about 85 students in total.

  • Several guest lecturers from the music industry gave presentations.

  • These MP3 files were created from the cassette tapes I made during the lectures.

  • In 2010, I moved the cassette tape audio into the digital world and remastered. The tapes were very old and in poor condition.
