ASC's Art Noxon is Acoustics Lecturer at Bruce Swedien Studio Workshop

Critical Listening classes for recording engineers taught by recording legend Bruce Swedien from Count Basie to Michael Jackson

Art Noxon has been Bruce's acoustic engineer since 1990.  He designed Bruce's last four home recording studios and teaches three days in each workshop covering recording studio acoustics. Bruce Swedien mugging with student in his home recording studio built around his Harrison consol, Westlake monitors, Electrocompaniet amps, and Monster cables by ASC TubeTrap acoustics.

Bruce Swedien mentored 9 recording engineers from all over the world, once again in his home studio in Ocala, Florida. Art Noxon, Bruce's acoustic design engineer, taught "Swedien Acoustics" to the group each morning session for the first 3 days of this 6 day session. Martin Kanola, Bruce's microphone design engineer, took over the morning sessions for the last 3 days. Art taught the group about:

  1. The design and construction of Bruce's studio,
  2. Sound, rooms and microphones,
  3. MATT testing monitor playback performance,
  4. The midfield wrap-around Awall Bruce uses for mixing,
  5. How he uses sound fusion and QSF for gathering full bodied "direct" signals in the live room,
  6. The difference between and uses for coherent and incoherent diffusers,
  7. How signal masking or clarity in the mix depends on the reverb setting.

Bruce and Bea Swedien surrounded by the graduates from one of the In the Studio with Bruce Swedien classes.  Behind them are the woods Art uses to teach sound fusion and the Haas effect.

This was the 4th of Bruce's present series of mentoring workshops: "In The Studio with Bruce Swedien" is a comprehensive one week "reprogramming" course for recording engineers who come from all over the world. They hope to discover and take home some of Bruce's technical tricks but who they meet is an engineer who does not even use compressors, limiters or EQ and who never even tries to fix it in the mix. He's a sound recording artist who does his mixing at the mic. And that's just the beginning. Bruce's mentoring classes are a rare, life changing opportunity for studio engineers to relearn how to approach their work in recording from one of the true and great Master Engineers in recording history.

Bruce's discography starts early with such names as Jimmy Dorsey, Duke Ellington and Count Basie, through Dinah Washington, Quincy Jones, The Wiz and Michael Jackson, Burt Bacharach, Sergio Mendes, James Ingram, Michael McDonald and Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Jennifer Lopez and many many more...
