GUILFORD, VT - Guilford Sound is now accepting applications for audio engineers interested in learning multitrack analog recording in a small, hands-on environment. Larry Crane, renowned engineer and founder of Tape Op Magazine, will track two songs by Massachusetts rock band Speedy Ortiz while demonstrating the workflow and process of running an analog-based session.

The workshop is limited to 11 students and held in one of New England's premier residential recording studios on over 300 private acres of Vermont woodlands. Meals are included and students are housed on-site in Guilford Sound's newly constructed, energy efficient housing facility. There is no experience necessary, but priority will be given to students with a basic understanding of audio recording and signal path. Applications are due April 9, 2015.

'Even with the maturing of digital multitrack as an accepted recording platform, many people look back nostalgically at the history of tracking music to tape, and specifically multitrack analog recording,' said Crane.

Attention will be paid to maximizing track usage, keeping the session productive and utilizing the best techniques of old-school engineering and modern production. Music will be captured on a Studer A827 16-track, 2-inch, 'Gold Edition' tape deck and mixed down to -inch and -inch Ampeg ATR102 decks.

The actual recording will take place on June 25 through 28.
