GRAMMY(r)-Winning Steve Pageot Introduces Tomorrow’s Music Moguls To HARMAN’s AKG At SAE Institute Workshops

VIENNA, Austria – Invited back for the eighth consecutive year to speak with students of the School of Audio Engineering (SAE), GRAMMY(r)-winning engineer and platinum producer Steve Pageot presented an inspiring and educational session for the future engineers. Showcasing HARMAN’s AKG P820 tube microphone during the workshops, Pageot recorded, and mixed a track during each of the four 2-hour sessions in SAE’s New York City studio.

Pageot discussed the intricacies of the music industry, from the music itself, to the business side, encouraging students to follow their dreams, while keeping on the correct path to success. “When you graduate from SAE, you’re stepping into the real world, into the music industry, where you normally don’t get a second chance at a first impression,” stated Pageot. “With SAE, I am fortunate enough to take these students and prepare them for their dream career. Being able to showcase AKG’s leading microphone technology gives students hands-on experience that will last them throughout their careers. They were completely in ‘awe’ for the sound emanating from the P820 and will take that experience to their clients in years to come.”

Working with artist Dyverse, Pageot discussed the importance of sound for a high-quality track. Hearing the raw recordings through the P820 impressed the students, who initially believed the sound was being processed. Pageot went through all the steps of recording hits from recording, producing, mixing and mastering during each session. Dyverse himself even touted the sound and clarity of the P820 during his sessions.

“We’re always pleased to have Steve at SAE, putting on production workshops for our senior students,” stated John Jansen, director of education, SAE. “His professional manner and production tips are always a benefit for our students as graduation approaches. The AKG P820 tube mic was a great addition to the class and was enjoyed by the students during the recording sessions.”
