Learn how to record great audio at the source!

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced musician, this workshop will teach you the skills and techniques you need to capture the sound of your instruments in the best possible way. Micah Cain, audio engineer at White River Studio, will lead students through picking the right microphone, where to place it, and how to dial in sounds for the right tone.

During this workshop, Micah will cover how to mic for vocals and piano. He will go over how to work with vocalists and engineering a session conducive to performance. Students will learn how to instruct mic technique, etiquette, and how to listen for good takes and energy from the performer.

On the piano, Micah will cover various ways to mic the instrument across multiple genres. He will go over how to capture pronounced keys to a full-spectrum tone and how to fit the technique to the genre.
He will also guide patrons through the process of setting up microphones, adjusting levels, and engineering your session.

About the presenter:

Micah Cain has been a musician for the past 20 years and has a deep desire to see the best come out of those he’s around. Whether it’s from the lens of an audio engineer or as a musician, he’s had the opportunity to work with numerous different engineers, producers, tech teams, worship teams, artists and varying organizations.

In his early music career, he filled the role of lead guitarist with a worship band, The Shine, whom he traveled with for almost 5 consecutive years. This led to many opportunities to fill the role as a musician in other bands as well as to be a session player and gain studio experience from the artist's point-of-view. As he became more versed on the audio side of things, his past experiences shed light on how important the studio process is from the artists’ perspective.

From that realization, Micah started his recording studio, White River Studio, where he connects with artists in a unique way that renders a great experience as well as quality sounds that the artist can be proud of. Micah currently fills the role as a music director, producer, AVL director, front-of-house engineer, and the lead recording, mix, and mastering engineer at White River Studio. When Micah’s not spending time working on live events and studio projects, he loves spending time making memories with his wife Beth, and their three kids: Josiah, Evie and Leo.
