What is live dub? More dynamic than a sound system session, more immersive than a stage show - live dub mixing is a unique art form that allows the mixing engineer to craft extemporaneous soundscapes with multi-tracked music arrangements, using echoes, reverbs, and other effects as brushes on the musical canvas. Paired with skilled vocalists, live dub becomes an unforgettable musical experience.

In this workshop, we go through the technicalities, equipment, all the ins and outs for live dub mixing! Each One Teach One

  • The workshop starts at 20:00 and lasts for 1.5 hours.


For fans of

Strictly good vibration!
