During the 2018 Summer NAMM Conference in Nashville, Hal Leonard hosted the latest Tech Talk Masterclass, featuring Grammy-winning producer Craig Bauer demonstrating his tracking and mixing process through a studio recording session with the alt-rock band, The Middle Ground.

Conducted at the world-famous Nashville studio the Tracking Room, students, dealers, manufacturers and musicians came together get a better understanding of what goes on in a professional recording session and in the mixing process. They also got to see different recording equipment in use. In addition to observing the session, a Q&A portion gave attendees the opportunity to better understand Bauer’s philosophy and techniques used in tracking and mixing. Various products were also raffled off as prizes for students in attendance.

Bill Crabtree, Program Director for MFA Recording Arts and Technologies at Middle Tennessee State University, helped organize students from MTSU, The Blackbird Academy, SAE Institute Nashville, and Belmont Institute to attend the event, and numerous dealers from across the nation also joined. Manufacturer support for the event came from AVID, Blue Microphones, Samson, Hartke, iZotope, Antares, Walrus Audio, Solomon Microphones, Gibraltar Hardware, Gretsch Drums and Paiste Cymbals.

Hal Leonard Masterclass events give dealers a unique opportunity to come together with students, manufacturers, and industry experts alike to see current industry and market trends, while also getting a better understanding of how they can provide their consumers with the right products.
