Alan Parsons’ Master Class Training Sessions touch down in their fifth country since the inaugural event in Argentina in 2011 with the announcement of a Level 2 MCTS at the prestigious Noble Street Studios located downtown in Canada’s music city, Toronto, on May 26, 2012.
Hosted and produced by Canadian distributor Global Music Depot, MCTS Toronto is an action-packed 1-Day session featuring acclaimed Canadian prog rockers The Dave Barrett Trio, fresh from an album produced by mentor Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson. The band will be augmented for the session by special guest vocalist Paul Reid.
In keeping with previous MCTS’s, attendees will spend a hands-on day working with Alan in Noble Street’s spacious SSL 4056 E/G control room, gaining invaluable experience in all aspects of recording and assisting in the production decisions.
Alan will keep attendees fully engaged from miking and isolation in the recording area to EQ and processing in the control room to interaction with the performers. Options and alternatives are freely discussed as the final product takes shape throughout the day.
MCTS Toronto will be especially interesting as it features an established band in the progressive rock genre, which will surely take Alan back to his days working with Pink Floyd and Yes (the Parsons-produced Symphonic Music of Yes album featuring Alan’s collaborator on ASSR Julian Colbeck on keyboards.).
If you recall our MCTS in Los Angeles last year, participants will get a unique opportunity to interact with legendary producer, engineer, and artist Alan Parsons inside a professional recording studio. Watch our video coverage from the Los Angeles event:
Only 20 of the Platinum seats are being made available for this prestigious event so early reservations are strongly advised.
