Point Blank Mastered

Running Aftermath Studios with Paul Montes

This event is sponsored by Kaotica. Point Blank will give away Kaotica Eyeballs to two lucky attendees at the end of the event. Thank you Kaotica!

Paul Montes is the Director of Studio Operations for Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, where he maintains all aspects of the recording studio facilities from top to bottom. Throughout his career, Paul has had the opportunity to work with the biggest names in modern hip hop including Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and many, many more. Before securing his role at Aftermath Entertainment, Paul worked as an audio engineer for various A-list movies and TV releases at the post-production studio Mi Casa Multimedia and as a Studio Supervisor for Interscope/IGA Studios. In addition to managing studio operations, Paul is also a partner/consultant for the brand KeepItOnTheLo, owned by Grammy-winning audio engineer/mixer Lola A. Romero, and is working on consulting and mentoring for up-and-coming audio engineers looking to further their careers in the entertainment industry under the moniker “Raised By Wolf.”

In this masterclass, Paul will go over everything that goes into running a major studio successfully and keeping the studio in optimum condition for any and all production, recording, and mixing studio sessions. He will share what his day-to-day looks like, how he successfully oversees all studio and faculty operations, including staff recruitment and training, booking/scheduling, client/artist relationships, and preparing reports for Dr. Dre. Paul will also share his experience working at Aftermath, including his journey from being a studio runner to serving as the Director of Operations, and everything it took to make that leap.

Attendees of this event will receive a clear understanding of what it takes to create success in any studio. Paul will provide a concise explanation of keeping a studio in prime condition for all potential sessions by giving an in-depth look at the day-to-day studio operations. He will explain how he successfully handles all scheduling, maintenance, hiring, client services, and technical support. This session provides the perfect space for anyone looking to have their questions about studio management answered by an industry expert.

Plus, attend for a chance to win one of two Kaotica Eyeballs in a free prize drawing at the end of the event! The Kaotica Eyeball is a studio booth alternative that fits over your microphone, sets up in seconds, and transforms any space into a recording studio. In the words of Paul Montes: "At Aftermath we don’t record anything without an Eyeball on it."
