November’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup is Thursday, November 30th from 7-9pm at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Thanks to Dawn Schot Klotzbach for hosting us!

The studio is located in the Main building (the one with the large gallery space) on the 3rd floor in room 329. Knock if the door is closed.

The sound class at MCAD is part of the Media Arts program, required for all filmmaking, animation, and web & multi-media students. 2 years ago, MCAD re-built their sound studio with consulting from Orfield Labs and installation/design by North Orbit. It is a 5.1 capable mixing station with a large semi-isolated recording booth. It uses a Lynx Aurora-8 interface and Dangerous Music ST monitoring system with near-field Genelec monitors. It has video mirroring to the booth for ADR and foley.

Dawn Schot Klotzbach has been teaching the sound class at MCAD for the last 14 years. She worked at Intuitive recording studio for 7 years and as a freelance sound mixer/engineer for 17 years. She is a filmmaker and video installation artist and a musician.

October’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup is Tuesday, October 10th, at 4pm at Drum Farm Studio. Thanks to Jackson Dols and Jared Miller for coordinating this!

From the website:
Drum Farm Studio is the recording studio of drummer John Louis Richardson, located in rural Menomonie, WI. Set in the pastoral farmland of the Midwest, Drum Farm Studio offers natural sounding acoustics on a secluded 100-acre organic farm, away from the distractions of the city.

A 100-year-old granary barn was converted to a recording studio in 2010 and features walls lined with reclaimed, old-growth lumber—some boards as wide as three feet. The wood-lined walls and acoustical design of the rooms make for a sound that’s lively but not too lively—just right.

For a sneak peek of the studio check out this video.

Feel free to invite your friends and join us for an afternoon of audio geekery! Since this is a ways away we encourage folks to carpool. Please email mspaudiogeeks at gmail dot com if you’re planning to attend & if you’d like to carpool.

Date: Tuesday, October 10, 2017
Time: 4pm
