Gregory Hainer Fort Collins Post Production

Read Profile

Gregory Hainer Fort Collins Post Production

Background

Recording Connection mentor Gregory Hainer is an interesting case. Usually our Recording mentors work primarily in the music industry but Gregory has made a successful career for himself in music as well as film, television, and video game entertainment as a music composer, voice over specialist, Sound FX designer and mixer on numerous projects including: Plants vs. Zombies 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Guild Wars 2, Prince of Egypt, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, We Were Soldiers, Dishonored, Black Hawk Down, and many more.

Gregory does most of his work from Scorpio Sound, his boutique studio located in the Hollywood Hills. His unique skills-set, talent, and setup enables him to do work larger audio studios can’t. “From a client’s perspective, I own the studio, so there is no middle management overhead to worry about because the owner/operator is also the creative head. This means I have the freedom to choose to spend a little more time with my clients in order to get things perfect versus having to be out of a studio by a specific time.” Specialty might as well be Gregory’s middle name. “I get quite a few calls for the most unusual or difficult to design stuff that many in-house teams can’t quite seem to pull off convincingly, such as creating sounds for creatures, magic spells, sci-fi effects, light sabers and the like. But I will also get the occasional call to do the less-fun direct stuff like cleaning up poorly recorded production audio from a film, or digging out inaudible archival dialogue from excessive background noise.”

On top of working in the film, TV, and video game industries Gregory also takes on Recording Connection apprentices and teaches them about both the industry and the craft of audio engineering.

If you’re looking for an industry-savvy audio engineering school in Fort Collins, Colorado, look no further. The RECORDING CONNECTION is the only school that gets you in the door of a real Fort Collins recording studio, where you’ll be trained as an apprentice (extern) by actual industry pros for a career in your choice of music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub fusion, industrial, house music, trance and more), club DJ and post production audio. In Fort Collins, CO, the best way to break into a music industry career is to get in the door of a real Fort Collins recording studio. We’re the school that gets you there.

What’s the point of spending 50 thousand dollars or more to sit in a college or trade school classroom, when you can train in a real recording studio for a fraction of that amount. Learn from the pros, get on the inside track, and gain industry access while you’re learning the ropes. Our audio engineering school is one of the smartest, most cost-efficient ways to get your music career off the ground.

Nestled against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the city of Fort Collins is located an hour north of the Denver metro, serving as home to around 150,000 people. Known for its hometown atmosphere, Fort Collins consistently makes the list of “Best Places to Live” in the U.S. by Money Magazine, and its scenic downtown is the model after which Disney theme parks’ “Main Street USA” was designed. As it turns out, Fort Collins is also home to a thriving independent music scene, fueled in part by the presence of Colorado State University, with bands and artists from many different genres performing in venues across the city, and even drawing talent from nearby Denver. Every spring, the Fort Collins Music Experiment (FoCoMx) features hundreds of local bands in dozens of Fort Collins venues, and in late summer, Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest takes over the historic downtown with lots of local music offered free and open to the public.

Considering the busy and active music scene in Fort Collins, it’s little wonder that there are quite a few high quality recording studios in the area. Whether you want to be a music producer, audio engineer, live audio tech or recording artist, the Recording Connection can train you in one of these professional facilities, effectively turning the studio into your personal classroom.

Our success in breaking people into the industry is due to our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. You won’t gain the experience or connections you need by sitting in a classroom, so we don’t put you there. Instead, you’ll be paired with a mentor in a real Fort Collins recording studio for one-on-one instruction that combines a structured curriculum with lots of hands-on experience. Not only is this the best way to learn how the business really works, but it also gives you the chance to make lots of industry connections that can help further your career! There’s simply no other opportunity like this. Enroll in our Fort Collins audio engineering school, and find out for yourself why over 70 percent of our students get hired.

The Fort Collins

Recording Connection Audio School Advantage

1

We Are Located Everywhere.

Locations, locations, locations. The Recording Connection has literally hundreds of them—not only all across the United States, but also on three continents. This means you don't have to relocate to attend our school. We can train you in one of our Fort Collins locations, or anywhere else you choose to go.

The other guys don't come close. Advantage: Recording Connection.

The other guys not only cost more, they have lots of add-on charges. Advantage: Recording Connection.

3

Your Classroom Will Be The Recording Studio.

At the Recording Connection, we have no use for traditional classrooms, and we promise you won't spend a single day in one. Instead, you'll be learning audio engineering inside a real recording studio. That's right—your classes take place on-the-job.
