Lesson plan (1h 35m)
Gearbox records is a specialist in putting out analog vinyl cuts from digital or analogue sources.
In this course, Darrel and Caspar will cover all the main aspects of what Gearbox does to get their product to market - the last stage of the creative process.
As part of the course, they'll show you the studio and recording process, the EQing process using outboard equipment, the work on digital workstations, the maintenance of the analog reel-to-reels, and go into the detail of cutting vinyl records using the studio's lathe.
This course is aimed to people who are used to digital mastering on the computer and who'll be excited discover how to do the same thing in the analog domain using mainly outboard equipment.
Why Analog mastering? Just because it's sonically better than digital and you're not dependent on hard drive disk space - it all fits on a tape!
Gearbox's mastering studio has the best vintage gear, all in great condition, which gives the best sound and pristine audiophile quality. They're also tied to Mark Ronson's live room next door, and have access to a top-notch recording facility where Grammy's are made!
