Free Music-Making Workshop with George Acosta Tomorrow
Tomorrow afternoon and evening, snag a free spot to learn some of the latest hands-on electronic beatmaking programs with George Acosta, Miami boy and legendary trance and progressive house DJ. (In 2007, Acosta was voted America’s Best DJ in DJ Times magazine. Also, remember those days at the Mix afterhours, circa late Nineties? If you do, albeit fuzzily, you’ll know this guy is no slouch.)
The SAE Institute of Technology in North Miami Beach will host the workshop, presented by IK Multimedia and featuring its latest virtual instrument software. Acosta will teach you how to use programs like SampleTank 2.5, Sonik Synth 2, SampleMoog, and SampleTron, as well as advise you on home studio acoustics.
Best of all, it’s totally free, and there are cool production-tech door prizes, as well as a drawing for one of IK’s Total Studio bundles (worth $1500). – Arielle Castillo
