Berlin: Mixing for Live-Broadcasting for acoustical and classical music recording
August 22 @ 18:30
Another AES Germany Berlin event is just around the corner! This time Philipp Reif a Recording Music Producer is invited to present mixing techniques for Live-Broadcasting for acoustical and classical music recording.
Mixing consoles vs. In-the-box mixing for Live-Broadcasting for acoustical and classical music recording
In-the-box mixing is by far the most common method of nowadays music production and allows the powerful approaches to detail automate a mix in the post production process. When it comes to balancing the faders during the recording process, a Live-Broadcasting or Live-Streaming most of the sound engineers and music producers fear in-the-box mixing as „not being reliable enough“ and „missing workflows“ they are familiar with working on a dedicated mixing console. In this event Philipp Reif would like to show that there are almost no limitations in recording and mixing directly out of the DAW for Live-Broadcasts (Opera or symphony orchestra) anymore on the example of Merging Technologies DAW Pyramix and their dedicated Audio Interfaces. He would also like to openly discuss the pros and also cons of an in-the-box workflow for Live-Recording and which opportunities it gives to professionals in the audio industry and how his company „Tonmeister Kollektiv“ is facing that challenge.
The host will be Angelika Podola, AES Germany Berlin.
Philipp Reif graduated from Tonmeister-studies with a Master degree (M. Mus.) at Berlin University of the Arts (UdK Berlin). He is a classical music producer and sound engineer based in Berlin, Germany, working with distinguished artists and institutions for different labels (Deutsche Grammophon, Sony Music, Decca, CPO, Prospero etc.) and broadcasting companies like Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg (RBB), Deutschlandfunk or Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) in Munich. He was educated in classical piano and flute and works as Tonmeister and sound engineer in the fields of classical and acoustical music production. His philosophy is to unleash the individual artistic potential of every artist in the highest professional level to create artistic outstanding and ear-catching recordings both musically and technically . Therefore Philipp takes care that the musical interpretation of the artists is preserved best possible by being a creative intermediate between the music and complex recording technique with greatest in-depth knowledge in both fields. The choice of the microphones for a Tonmeister is similar to the choice of a painter which colors to mix to achieve an artwork of impressive perception. The difference of the Tonmeister’s job is to MIX TONE COLORS which are perceived by the ear. Eventually every recording is a unique artwork of the performing musicians in collaboration with the Tonmeister.
