Rarefied Recording, a San Diego Recording Studio

Update on Summer Workshop

Well, you dream big and sometimes you dream too big!

While we think the idea for a 10 day summer intensive on recording and mixing was great, there just doesn’t seem to be a group of folks out there with that much time and money on their hands. So we are cancelling the workshop.


Brian Scheuble and I would like to do a shorter 3 day workshop. So we are now seeking participants for that. For now we are not committing to any particular date. We’d like to find 6 serious participants and then find a time that works for all of them as well as tailor the workshop to their needs. We think this represents a great opportunity to really deliver a meaningful experience to all involved.

If you’re interested, please get in touch via email (info@rarefiedrecording.com) or you can text or call 619-432-2642.

The cost is now a much more manageable $500/person.

Announcing: Summer Recording Intensive!

Looking to kickstart or vastly improve your abilities to record and mix music? We’ve got just the thing for you!


This summer, Rarefied Recording is proud to host a 10 day recording and mixing intensive workshop.

The intensive will be taught by house engineer Roy Silverstein and veteran recording engineer/mixer, Brian Scheuble.

The first 5 days will be focused on how to record specific instruments. We’ll be covering vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keys, horns, and strings.

The last 5 days will be used to record and mix a full band.

The focus throughout the intensive will be on the basics of recording: getting the source sounding right, picking the right microphone for the job, proper mic placement, proper use of compression and eq, etc. We will not be teaching Pro Tools or any other specific DAW as all of these techniques will be applicable no matter what you use to record.

Dates of the intensive will be July 17th – 21st and 24th – 28th, 2017 (10am to 6pm).

Only 6 slots are available. This will keep the class small and intimate.

The cost per person is $1500.
