Audio specialist Sennheiser and Full Compass Systems, a national leader in professional audio, professional video, A/V, lighting and musical instrument sales, are co-sponsoring a special audio recording clinic on Tuesday, September 11 at the Full Compass facility in Madison, Wis. The event will feature Grammy Award-winning sound engineer Leslie Ann Jones (pictured), who will demonstrate vocal recording techniques and cover best practices when recording vocals in the studio. Seating is limited.

Attendees will be provided with a pair of Sennheiser HD 449s, enabling them to monitor both recording and playback. The event will feature door prizes including a K-array Piccolo audio system, a Neumann TLM 102 microphone and a True Systems P-SOLO microphone preamplifier.

Jones is Director of Music Recording and Scoring with Skywalker Sound in Marin County, Calif., and has been a recording and mixing engineer for more than 30 years. She began her career at ABC Recording Studios in Los Angeles in 1975 before moving to Northern California in 1978 to accept a staff position at the legendary Automatt Recording Studios. There she worked with such artists as Herbie Hancock, Bobby McFerrin, Holly Near, Angela Bofill, and Narada Michael Walden, and started her film score mixing career with Apocalypse Now.

From 1987 to 1997 she was a staff engineer at Capitol Studios located in the historic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood. She recorded projects with Rosemary Clooney, Michael Feinstein, Michelle Shocked, BeBe & CeCe Winans, and Marcus Miller, as well as the scores for several feature films and television shows.

In 2003, Jones was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Engineered Recording, Classical, and received a Grammy Award for the Kronos Quartet's recording of Berg: Lyric Suite, which won Best Chamber Music Album.
