The February 2020 MSP Audio Geeks meetup will be on Wednesday, March 4th from 7-9pm at the Wedge Table, in their community room. Fellow audio geek and MAAT co-founder Oliver Masciarotte will be showcasing some of the MAAT plug-in roster for us.

A bit about Oliver:
A graduate of the Lowell Institute of MIT, Oliver A. Masciarotte has spent over 30 years immersed in the tech space, working on facilitation, marketing, and product development for clients such as Apple, Harper Collins, The Hit Factory, NASA Johnson, NPR, Pioneer, the San Francisco Symphony, Sony, WHYY and Universal. His writings include a book covering file–based music for the home and well over 100 articles in sundry trade publications. As an invited presenter at numerous trade conferences and member of the AES, SMPTE, PMI and DCS, he enjoys informing folks about technological best practices. These days, OMas is CMO and co–founder of MAAT Incorporated, a developer of pro audio hardware and software solutions.

From the MAAT website:
Once upon a time, a well respected mastering engineer had some sensible but unorthodox notions, and colleagues crazy enough to throw in with him…Thus was born the Pleasurize Music Foundation. Later in his career, that same guy decided to lift up the music community further by establishing the Mastering Academy…Those two enterprises formed the roots of MAAT; a dedication to quality, a desire to do good and a need to provide better sounding, easier to use tools and simpler workflows.

Invite your friends & join us for an evening of audio geekery! All are welcome to attend.

Please note that outside food & beverage is not allowed at the Wedge Table. We encourage you to support the Wedge Table by purchasing something from them.

February’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup is Wednesday, February 28th from 7-9pm at The Resonance Box.

From the website:
The Resonance Box is a small initiative with the intention of bringing focus to the world of auditory experiences. Hearing has not only been a way for us to enjoy beautiful music, but it has also played a key role in our survival as a species. Sound continues to stay an important aspect of our research into the unknown territories of the cosmos. We hope to bring attention to this wonderous sensory process and the exploration of it by human kind in different realms, from art, to science, to math and physics.

Aida Shahghasemi is a Minneapolis based vocalist and musician. She studied Psychology and Anthropology at University of Minnesota with a focus on the restrictions of the voices of female vocalists in Iran, where she was born and raised until the age of thirteen. She received her Masters degree from New York University in Art and Public Policy, exploring her interests in the intersection of art and socio-political movements. She has worked with different New York and Minnesota based social justice art organizations and has served as an assistant director at Hamline University’s Making Waves Social Justice Theatre Troupe. She is a recipient of 2017 McKnight music fellowship.

February’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup is on Wednesday, February 22nd from 7-9pm. Levi Stugelmeyer of Summer Winter Studios will be our host. We are excited for this joint outing with the Mpls.-St. Paul Studio Nerds group, which is moderated by Gregg Ward.

Levi John Stugelmeyer is a drummer, producer and studio owner. He is the touring drummer for Nashville based artist Caitlyn Smith and the owner of Summer – Winter – Studios in Saint Paul, MN.

Summer – Winter – Studios is a compound based in the old offices of the King Koil mattress factory. It consists of a professional recording studio, rehearsal studio, and a 1,000 square foot gallery/performance space. It is also host to multiple photographers, artists, and musicians.

Gregg Ward is a songwriter, musician, and engineer residing in St. Paul, MN. He is the curator of the MSP Studio Nerds Facebook Group and a mastering engineer at Studio Arcade Mastering. Some of the things he is currently thinking about are where vintage and new merge, future potential and encouraging artists, cultivating creative catalysts in the studio, writing a better pop song and finding a good red wine.

In partnership with Summer Winter Studios, we are trying something new we’re calling the Free Trade Fix Table.

  • Do you have gear that works great but you never use and would like to see it put to use?
  • Do you have gear that just doesn’t work right and know you will never get around to fixing?
  • Have something that you would like to trade for another piece of gear?
  • Do you have strong fixit skills and want to save some money with your time?

In the spirit of coming together and sharing in community, stop by the Free Trade Fix table and check it out. Feel free to take or donate something. Help yourself and someone else.
