The Studio Prodigy Master Class Series continues with Session Six:  Jim Scott | From the Ground Up, on November 8 and 9 at Jim’s notorious personal studio, PLYRZ Studios, in Valencia California.  This is a two-day advanced class encompassing recording, mixing and production techniques, along with special presentations from our sponsors throughout the event.

Renown for clean, vibey and impeccable sounding recordings, Jim Scott has brought his sense of style and his mid-western work ethic into the studio, making memorable records with remarkable artists for over three decades.  His techniques for capturing the essence of a band have been refined through the making of classic albums with the likes of Sting, Tom Petty, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Dixie Chicks, Wilco, and Whiskeytown.  Jim has won 7 Grammy awards, including Best Engineered Recording, Non-Classical, for Tom Petty’s Wildflowers.

Just up the freeway from Los Angeles, Jim’s studio is a veritable playground for musicians; an enormous warehouse space full of instruments, clad in tapestries and lights, always ready to rock.  PLYRZ studio is centered around a classic Neve 8048 and two BCM-10 sidecars, augmented by Jim’s collection of vintage outboard gear and sizeable mic collection.

Saturday begins with an overview of Jim’s recording setup at PLYRZ Studios, and a discussion of Jim’s philosophy of making records.  Through the course of the day, we will record a complete song with a fantastic band, and in the process, Jim will show you everything he does to capture a great performance, from micing techniques to production ideas to mentoring the artists and getting the best performances out of them.

Sunday's session will start with wrapping up overdubs and continue with mixing the track.   Jim will walk you through his mix process, answering questions and demonstrating how he thinks about and feels a mix.  Combining the best of old school technique with a little bit of modern technology, this will prove to be a very hands-on experience for attendees, as Jim mixes everything by hand, with little help from automation!

At the end of day two, Studio Prodigy hosts a Gear and Beer fest in the stunning lounge area of PLYRZ Studios, with a view of the Santa Clarita Valley. Here you will be able to check out the great gear with representatives from our sponsors, and hang with Jim as he relates stories from his lengthy career of making records that we all know and love.
