- Nshan Petrosyan
About: Nshan, also known as MEKANIST, is an electronic musician and sound designer based in Los Angeles with a love of musical exploration and a passion for detailed design and production. He’ll be presenting his track “Origami” pointing out the “outside of the box” things he did, including using foley sounds to create transitions and spacial textures and using frequency splitting to process full spectrum sounds on a more detailed level. He’ll also be showing us how you can create your own Stereo Spreader Rack in Ableton, which will help in all genres of production. This tool can be used to spread guitars and give them a “double tracked” feel, for example.
