Tip of the Week: Andrew's tip of the week https://www.telefunken-elektroakustik.com/multitracks
Telefunken mixing stems/multitracks. Andrew gave a great overview of Telefunken, how and why it's helpful to use the tracks and did a brief, effective walkthrough of the website. The reaction in AES chat lit up with other resources for mixing stems. Great Tip and topic for getting people engaged.
Gear Show and Tell: I think this segment being replaced may make more students engage. Will Share ideas at next board meeting.
A few people shared, but the conversation turned from gear to books, which is excellent but, I see 2 sides to this segment and think the general reaction speaks louder than people showing gear.
Arean Rahbari interviewed Don Salter.
Don shared some funny stories about clients, flip flops, expectations of interns, the importance of cleanliness in the studio and gave high praise to the satisfaction of the CRAS students that have interned and worked for him.
He gave a lot of insight to studio life and the history/ mission of Saltmine. Don gave his number and welcomed us to text and schedule a tour.
CRAS Grads & Students on internship. L.A, Utah, NYC.
