The Recording Workshop

Lectures from The Recording Workshop (Chillicothe Ohio, July 1980)

  • In July 1980, I attended The Recording Workshop, a 4-week intensive school for recording and engineering..
  • The school was a complex of 4 studios located in Chillicothe Ohio.
  • I attended the "Early Summer" session, with about 85 students in total.
  • Several guest lecturers from the music industry gave presentations.
  • These MP3 files were created from the cassette tapes I made during the lectures.
  • In 2010, I moved the cassette tape audio into the digital world and remastered. The tapes were very old and in poor condition.
