The November 2018 MSP Audio Geeks meetup will be on Tuesday, November 27th from 7-9pm at Sovereignty Recording. Justin Muffett and Kenny Befus are our hosts.

From the website:
We do things a little differently here at Sovereignty Recording…. more importantly, we really like to do things your way. As a recording artist, you have more options now than ever before when it comes to recording, producing, and releasing music. We know this. Our goal is to enable you to own your sound and do it in an affordable manner.

We’re in the scene…
We aim to be fully engaged with the Twin Cities music scene and support the artists who are making good music. We’ve done our best to maximize quality vs. cost on our end and do our darndest to pass that savings on to our clients (SHARE THE LOVE!). Be sure to check out the work we are doing with Pony Rug when you get a chance – we are strongly aligned with their vision: to expose and support local musical talent.

We’re flexible…
Wanna do a full-length album at our studio? Great, we can do that! Just need need a kick-ass drum track for 1 song on your upcoming full-length album? Also great! We are as excited about small projects as we are large projects. Whether you simply need a vocal track, or a drum track, or even just a few hours in the studio to hash ideas out, we can make that happen.

We love drums…
We’ve got a great room for tracking drums (and everything else, of course!). We know that getting solid drum tracks can be one of the biggest challenges when you’re trying to produce and record on your own and without dropping $$$. We can help with that.

Invite your friends & join us for an evening of audio geekery! All are welcome to attend. Feel free to BYOB. If you are planning to attend please RSVP to mspaudiogeeks at gmail dot com.

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.

Wits

November’s MSP Audio Geeks Meetup is on Thursday, November 20 at 2pm. This is a special event, hosted by Corey Schreppel of Minnesota Public Radio | American Public Media.

We will start the afternoon off at the Fitzgerald Theater to sit in on a rehearsal for the popular show Wits.

We will then walk over to the MPR studios for a tour.

From the website: Wits is a live public radio show that brings world-class comedians, actors and musicians to the stage where host John Moe gives them and the audience the time of their lives. Wits mixes improv, sketch comedy, conversation, music and genuine beauty in a program praised as “one of the rare public radio comedy shows that’s actually funny” (Huffington Post) and “on course to become a national hit” (USA Today).

The rehearsal will be for the show on Friday, November 21 featuring actor Keegan-Michael Key and musical guest Bhi Bhiman. The show starts at 8pm and you can purchase tickets through Ticketmaster or by calling the Fitzgerald Theater at 651-290-1200. There are special discounts for MPR members and for Wits Social Club members.
