Speaker Name:Dave Porter - Owner, Mix One Studios, Boston, MA
Other business or activities at the meeting:We took a group of 10 students to visit Mix One Studios in Boston, where our section president Josh Welshman has been an intern/assistant engineer. Owner Dave Porter gave us a full tour of the facility, including the history of the studio, what kind of work they do, and showed some examples of a film they were working on.
The students learned a great deal about a facility that not only makes records, but also has a full foley pit and does audio post for film and TV. Since audio post is not an area our curriculum touches on as much as music, it was very much an enlightening experience for some of our students. They also learned about how post is applied in the modern world, and how the studio can connect to Hollywood via ISDN for real-time recording and mixing across the country.
