Established in 2005, the METAlliance (Music Engineering and Technology Alliance) is a strategic union of music producers and engineers dedicated to the highest standards of audio and delivery of music, securing the art through recording technology in all its evolving modern forms. It was founded by globally-recognized, award-winning audio engineers and producers Chuck Ainlay, Ed Cherney, Frank Filipetti, George Massenburg, Elliot Scheiner, Al Schmitt, and the late Phil Ramone. The METAlliance works with educators to help insure the skills and techniques that have developed through the history of recording are carried forward.

Previous METAlliance Academy events in Hollywood and New York City have been intense weekends covering every aspect of recording from mic technique and recording basic tracks to critical listening and advanced mixing. METAlliance co-founder Al Schmitt stated, “We love working very closely with a diverse group of students, pros, educators and recording beginners.”

The METAlliance Academy offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience living history while learning invaluable techniques with the legendary master craftsmen who founded the METAlliance. Space is very limited. Amenities include lunch and giveaways.
