Saturday begins with an overview of Jim’s recording setup at PLYRZ Studios, and a discussion of Jim’s philosophy of making records.  Through the course of the day, we will record a complete song with a fantastic band, and in the process, Jim will show you everything he does to capture a great performance, from micing techniques to production ideas to mentoring the artists and getting the best performances out of them.

Sunday’s session will start with wrapping up overdubs and continue with mixing the track.   Jim will walk you through his mix process, answering questions and demonstrating how he thinks about and feels a mix.  Combining the best of old school technique with a little bit of modern technology, this will prove to be a very hands-on experience for attendees, as Jim mixes everything by hand, with little help from automation!
