The July 2019 MSP Audio Geeks meetup will be on Monday, July 29th from 7-9pm at Hennepin Technical College’s Eden Prairie campus. Thanks to Matt Holmes for hosting us!

This event will be a swap meet! If you have gear that you are looking to re-home – even if it needs repair – feel free to offer it up. All gear swap terms are to be determined directly by the individuals involved. If you bring something that doesn’t have a new owner at the end of the night you may choose to donate it to the HTC Audio Production program. Please check with Matt if it is something they could use. Gear donations are eligible for a tax-deductible donation.

About the HTC Audio Production program:
The Audio Production program at Hennepin Technical College has been training audio professionals for over 25 years and offers an AAS degree and Diploma. The facilities offer 7 full production studios and 18 DAW workstations. As part of the MinnState education system, the Audio Production program offers some of the lowest tuition in the State, while maintaining small class/lab sizes, and up to date equipment/gear. Matt Holmes has been a full-time faculty member for 13 years, along with studio manager/lab assistance Mike Byrne. Matt also is an engineer at Wild Sound Recording Studio in northeast Minneapolis.

Thanks also to Roll Music Systems for providing some tasty eats for us! Justin will also be available to answer questions about troubleshooting gear that may be in need of repair. He’ll also be showcasing a PACE desoldering system.

A bit about Roll Music Systems:
Roll Music Systems is a small Minneapolis company specializing in analog gear that brings big-studio sound to smaller studios, including the Folcrom passive summing device and a line of all-tube 500-series modules. They also design products for other manufacturers and consult for studio installations around the world.

The July 2018 MSP Audio Geeks meetup is Tuesday, July 31 from 7-9pm at Runway Studios. Jason Miller is our host.

From the website:
In 1988, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis built a private recording studio called Flyte Tyme Studios where they recorded over a hundred gold and platinum albums with artists including Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, and many others before moving to Los Angeles in 2002. Thirty years after Flyte Tyme started, the facility is transforming into a multimedia studio complex open to the public called Runway Studios.

Runway offers no-compromise studios specifically designed for media freelancers. We have recording spaces and control rooms that are second to none and integrate seamlessly into the home studio workflow.

We believe that a vibrant, creative community thrives when artists are able to interact and connect with each other and we are excited to have musicians, photographers, producers, and videographers all working under one roof.

Invite your friends & join us for an evening of audio geekery! All are welcome to attend. You are welcome to BYOB. There will also be some beverages from Able Seedhouse + Brewery. If you are planning to attend please RSVP to mspaudiogeeks at gmail dot com.

July’s meetup is on Wednesday, July 27th, 2016 from 6-9pm at The Pearl Recording Studio, hosted by founder, engineer, and producer Zachary Hollander. We’ll be recording simultaneously to analog tape and a DAW and then comparing the two. Zach will also share some tips & tricks for getting great sounds.

From the website:
“The Pearl Recording Studio was founded by brothers Zachary and Noah Hollander in the spring of 2010. Our main objective at The Pearl is to provide professional recordings with the highest quality of sound possible. We strive for excellence in everything we do and pay close attention to every detail, cutting corners on nothing. Our goal is to see every artist satisfied with a project they are proud of.

Zachary Hollander’s love for recording started at the age of sixteen when he won two microphones in a local music competition. In 2002 he opened his first recording studio, Silver Fox Records, in the Black Hills of South Dakota. After local success in recording regional projects he moved to Orlando, Florida to further his recording education at Full Sail University. After receivng his degree in Recording Arts he started his internship at the legendary Pachyderm Recording Studio in Cannon Falls, MN. After becoming a staff engineer at Pachyderm, Zachary worked on countless recordings from different genres.
