Free studio time at MTSU

Middle Tennessee State UniversityHere’s an opportunity for a band in central Tennessee to take advantage of some free studio time later this month.

We heard last week from Robert Trapp, a student in the Recording Industry program at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro. He has a project coming up that requires him to track, edit and mix a band for his Recording Techniques class, and he is offering to record an old time, country, traditional, or contemporary bluegrass bands that is available October 20, 23, 24 and 25.

“The sessions will take place on the MTSU campus in studios D and E. Each day will be broken up into 4 hour blocks, so for instance the first day will be a run through (get good mic placement and getting scratch tracks recorded) while the second day will be fine tuning the performances. Day 3 and 4 would most likely be for lead and harmony vocal tracks. This is a great way for me (the student/ aspiring engineer) to gain experience in a professional setting and also a way for a band to record for free and have something to market and promote.”

Sounds like a win-win to me. Contact Robert by email for more details.
