We're excited to announce our next RAC Workshop with a keynote seminar, technical seminars, Q&As, mixing sessions, and a cypher. This workshop headlines Grammy-winning mixing engineer Neal Pogue and features beat-making seminars using Logic, Reason and Ableton given by product specialists. The Workshops will take place on March 29th at RAC Montreal and March 30th at RAC Toronto.

Neal's credits include: Outkast, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne, The Game, Nicki Minaj, Earth Wind & Fire, Robin Thicke, Pink, Nelly Furtado, Aloe Black, LL Cool J, AWOLNATION, TLC, Stevie Wonder, Common, Talib Kweli, Young Money, Franz Ferdinand, Demi Lovato, Citizen Cope, Donovan Frankenreiter, Bow Wow, Ying Yang Twins, and others.
Attention Artists and Producers

For emerging Montreal- and Toronto-area music creators, this is an amazing opportunity to separate yourself from the local market and make your name known.
As a student, this is your chance to pick up some serious tips from one of the industry's most successful mixing engineers. Attending this workshop gives you the opportunity to:
- Demo your music to a Grammy-winning mixing engineer.
- Get individual feedback on your work.
- Collaborate on a special project to be announced at a later date.
- Learn advanced mixing processes to perfect the sound that sets you apart from the crowd.
- (If selected) take part in our "Emerging Hip Hop Artists from Montreal" and "Emerging Hip Hop Artists from Toronto" cyphers to be delivered to an audience of over 100,000 listeners.
