Event description

Description

Some see it as an unwanted guest while others never seem to get enough of it. We are talking about Distortion!

To get a better understanding of this love & hate relationship, distinguishing the different types of distortion is essential. During this fascinating workshop, you learn how to categorise different types of distortion, and get insights on applying them as tools to colour your sound.

We also have a look at how to keep your signal clean in the best possible way.

From science to art

On 12th of July we have invited Volker Meitz to take you through the inner workings of distortion. Meitz is the right man for the job, feeling perfectly at home with artistic and technical topics relating to music production. Besides being a creative musician and engineer with various credits as an artist and collaborator, he also studied Audio Communication and Electronic Engineering at TU Berlin.

For whom

Are you a musician, producer or engineer, willing to dive deeper into the world of distortion and its applications? Then this is certainly something for you!

Together with Meitz, you explore the nature of various forms of distortion, discover what they do to your audio signal, and which of them are characteristic to specific 'topologies' of gear in the signal chain. We also touch on topics such as the auditory perception of distortion, how to measure it, the digital simulation of analogue gear and the ongoing In-The-Box vs Out-Of-The-Box debate.

After this workshop, you have a different approach to distortion and be able to add some fundamental facts whenever someone is challenging you. Does this sound good to you? Secure your spot while they are still available!
