From Raw to Refined: How a Recording Comes to Life in Real-T

Spektral Quartet’s insanely-talented recording and mixing engineer, Dan Nichols, will be on-screen with the members of the quartet as they take you from the raw audio (the "capture"), through the magic of editing, the mixing and EQing phases (setting balances for individual voices and shaping their color), and into mastering. Are "mixing" and "mastering" unfamiliar concepts to you? Don’t worry…you’ll be an armchair expert by the end of this event.
With Dan sharing his screen, you can see the software making changes live on an excerpt of Brahms’ String Quartet No. 1, Allegro to show you the myriad choices that go into just a handful of measures of music. Throughout this process, Spektral Quartet will respond to your questions.
