creativeLIVE is partnering with rocker Andrew Wade for a free, live class on recording guitars. creativeLIVE, an online education network, launched an audio channel in Aug. 2013 and has already produced workshops with Incubus manager Steve Rennie, EDM DJ Big Chocolate, and engineer/producer Eyal Levi.
Andrew Wade’s workshop, streaming live Oct. 22-23 9:00 AM — 4:00 PM PT, is the first creativeLIVE workshop focused solely on guitar production. The full creativeLIVE course description is below:
"A great guitar sound is the centerpiece of modern rock, metal, pop-punk, and metalcore. Join producer Andrew Wade (A Day to Remember, The Ghost Inside, The Word Alive, etc.) for an intensive look into the rock guitar techniques every producer and engineer needs to know.
In this two-day course, Andrew will teach you everything you need to know about creating huge, thick guitar tones. You’ll learn how to prep and setup, and develop best practices for tracking guitars. He'll cover both real amp and amp sims, mixing in your DAW, and more.
Whether you’re recording tracks at home or in a professional studio, this course will give you concrete, easy-to-apply techniques for taking your guitar sounds to the next level."
Andrew has worked on many bands, including The Ghost Inside, Motionless In White, the Word Alive, Our Last Night to name a few, and most recently he served as an engineer, producer, and songwriter on A Day To Remember's Common Courtesy.
