Master Class Training Sessions are live events where Attendees get hands-on, interactive instruction from Alan Parsons on the 'art and science' of sound recording. They follow similar themes to the Art And Science Of Sound Recording videos but as live events they are more in-depth and offer the chance to actually work with Alan Parsons.
MCTS sessions are held in recording studios around the world, including at Alan’s own studio ParSonics in Santa Barbara, CA, and comprise one or two day events
As we head into something approaching normal life again we hope to be holding more master classes in 2022, both at ParSonics and at other studios around the world. In August 2021 we held our first ‘live’ master class in Santa Barbara for over year and both the Video of the class and the Session File are currently on sale in the ASSR shop.
