Be in the studio and watch the engineer mix a live session.
Welcome to a new series of M.E. Advanced Masterclasses. M.E. features Grammy-Nominated Engineer & Producer Frank Socorro in a five-part live mixing masterclass. It’s a chance to watch over the engineer’s shoulder, ask questions in real time and apply the tips to your own mixes.
We partnered with IK Multimedia to give every registered attendee T-RackS 5 SE ($149 value).
Frank started his audio career in the early 2000's working in the Miami area recording the diverse styles that occur in a city that’s developed into the melting pot it is today. During that time an opportunity to work on a Bad Boy project put him on a fast track that led to him working with artists such as Mary J Blige, Lenny Kravitz and Lauryn Hill. Eventually he would land a position as head engineer for super producer Salaam Remi. This new position brought a wider range of projects from Nas and Cee-Lo to major motion picture work for Rush Hour and Sex and the City. Along the way came 5 GRAMMY nominations and several gold and platinum plaques. He currently operates his own studio while working with the future of audio at the SAE Miami campus.
