Studying Steinberg with Master Mixer, Dom Sigalas
Students and staff were absolutely delighted to be joined by Dom Sigalas, UK Cubase product specialist for Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH, for some online training on 22nd July. Dom provided an introduction to using Cubase Pro and at the end of the session the participating students received copies of Cubase LE software from Steinberg enabling them to practice their new found skills from home over the summer.
Dom’s delivery of the virtual tutorial, resulting from our status as a Steinberg Certified Training Centre, was inspirational for our group of GCSE, International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and A Level Music students.
The participants, including four of our talented Music Scholars, discovered how Cubase could help develop an initial idea into a finished masterpiece through recording, editing and mixing. The capabilities of the computer-based music production software allow users to mix external recordings with virtual instruments and offers an incredible array of opportunities to alter the sound for the final output.
Dom’s experience more than qualifies him for the role as a Steinberg product specialist. He is a freelance music producer, film composer, sound designer and musicologist who also creates all kinds of online musical content. He has worked with Universal Music, StudioCanal, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, National Geographic and many more familiar household names, writing music for films, documentaries, television and radio advertising, musicals, library music and video games. Based in London, Dom is currently the the Senior Music Producer for Sunlightsquare Records and also the Senior Mixing and Mastering Engineer for the acclaimed Mixing and Mastering service, Doctormix.com.
Rosemary Scales, Director of Music, commented “Dom’s fun and enjoyable training left us all feeling inspired to continue with some creative music-making throughout the summer and I am really looking forward to hearing what the students have produced when we return to school in September.”
