YANG TAN – MIXING | MUSIC PRODUCTION | DOLBY ATMOS MIX

Yang Tan, or “Young Tan” as she is sometimes called by her co-workers at Paramount Studio in Hollywood, has a unique background as a specialist in recording orchestral arrangements (she worked with the Chinese National Orchestra back in her native China), but the now Los Angeles-based engineer has become a favorite of urban artists lately.

Tan is a mixer as well as a music producer. Tan says she likes to work fast, which artists often appreciate in the studio. “I love to do vocal producing, and I will constantly be editing their vocals in real-time as they record,” she says. “What I usually like to do is make the demos as good as possible that night [of the recording].”

PLEASE NOTE:

Women’s Audio Mission focuses on increasing the gender balance in audio production and technology sectors since less than 5% of the population employed in these sectors are women. There are limited spots available in our events, and they often sell out, so we ask that if you are not a woman (transgender or cisgender), non-binary, gender-expansive, or gender non-conforming, that you reconsider registering. We will not turn anyone away, but please be mindful that if you take up a seat, that is one less woman or gender-diverse individual that we can serve. We thank you for your understanding in advance and for joining us in our mission to advance women and girls in music production and the recording arts.
