Learning the tricks of the trade through conversations with the pros!

Think about some of your favorite producers, engineers and innovators in the recording industry—people like Jack Joseph Puig, Raphael Saadiq, Jay Baumgardner, Rupert Neve. What would it be like to sit down and have a conversation with them, to learn their secrets? Welcome to Pensado’s Place, a weekly Internet show hosted by top mixing engineer Dave Pensado, where some of the most influential people in the industry today tell their stories in audio engineering and music production.

At Recording Connection, we know that it just makes sense to learn professional audio and production straight from the people who do it for a living (we believe this so strongly that our entire educational approach is based on it!). That’s why we are a proud sponsor of Pensado’s Place. There’s no better place to learn the tricks of this trade than by listening to the pros.

Find out from these engineers and producers what it’s like to work with some of your favorite bands in the studio. Find out how they solved that sticky audio problem, or learn their shortcuts to a perfect mix. Watch Dave Pensado himself show you step-by-step to mix live drums, put just the right amount of EQ on a vocal, or fix problems with compression, with his “Into the Lair” tutorial series. It’s all here—the real world information you need to polish your audio production skills.

Watch this video from Pensado’s Place where Grammy Award Winner Dave Pensado, Herb Trawick and Tim Palmer discuss our method of teaching.

In the competitive world of audio engineering and music production, classroom-based studies won’t help you master the skills you need in the studio—learning directly from the pros will. We know this, which is why we sponsor Pensado’s Place. And Pensado’s Place knows this, which is why we are the only industry alternative to recording school they endorse.

The guests on Pensado’s Place have worked with top names in music, such as:

  • Beyonce
  • Kanye West
  • Beastie Boys
  • Beck
  • Justin Bieber
  • Norah Jones
  • Fall Out Boy
  • Black Eyed Peas
  • Soundgarden
  • Katy Perry
  • Justin Timberlake
  • Adele

…and many, many more!
