I had an incredible opportunity to hold the first #URMSummit2017 at @theaudiocompound. We had over 100 people from all over the world in attendance. I got to make new friends and share my recording secrets with others as passionate about their craft. Can’t wait till the next one! 📸 by @annbuster

I got to hang out, chat and learn from @joeyismusick @unstoppablekillingmachine @brianh00d @kanechurko @joelwanasek @riffsandbeards @andrewade @deckerboards @finnmckenty @mattperiphery and @mbdrummer. Cant wait to put the things ive learned to use with our upcoming projects! #urmsummit2017#nosmalltime
Still trying to find the best words to describe what happened this past week. It was an honor to meet and talk with so many of the speakers and to also meet-up with many of the attendees who are so passionate about their career path. Lastly, it was truly amazing to work with the URM staff after many months of only interfacing online and to at the end of the week be able to stand back and look at this amazing accomplishment that was the #urmsummit2017
Live recording gig the day after the #urmsummit2017 for the Marcus Anderson Quintet. @marcustrombone 's compositions are expressive, exciting, and just great. Awesome playing also from @parkerspeirs @mylesklawrence @bjttolman and @374mike. It's a treat to record killer playing, especially when you're both a fan and a friend.
This week was so rad. I’m thankful to have been able to attend the first ever @urmacademy Summit to learn from, meet and befriend so many incredible producers, mixers and creatives from all over the world. Sometimes I get so engrossed that I forget to stop and take enough pictures to document. This week was definitely a case of that. There are so many special people I met, I’ll try and tag you here. See ya next year!
I’m exhausted but I feel amazing. What an overwhelming experience this was. It’s been a goal of mine for decades to put on something like the #urmsummit2017 And I think it’s safe to say that this is the beginning of a great thing! Many thanks to all of you who either spoke or just attended and who made this a memorable life-changing experience for all of us. Now onto a well earned vacation! @sleepynfussy
Among the many, many great pleasures this week was that I got to learn, hang, laugh and learn some more from these gentlemen. @joeyismusick needs no introduction. He is an absolute beast at his craft, and he is also a super cool person who I now get to call both friend and mentor. Billy Decker has more number ones than he has teeth in his mouth (and you can all see that white shine on his smile). He is probably the nicest person in music, which is the biggest lesson of all. It’s been a beautiful week here in Orlando. Hope to see you next year! #urmsummit2017#urmacademy#music#lifehacks#education#audio
This week, I went to Florida to learn more about making records from some amazing producers. If you’re a fan of heavier music (which I know many of you are), you should know @joeyismusick . He has produced for bands like Of Mice and Men, The Devil Wears Prada, We Came As Romans, Attack Attack, and more.
One phrase that Joey uses is “start before you’re ready”. Even though he began his recording career in his friend’s mom’s garage with barely any equipment, he still found a way to forge a fresh, cool sound that influences countless artists to this day. It was inspiring to meet someone from such humble beginnings who has come so far, and now teaches others.
So friends, whatever your dream is, don’t let a lack of resources or money limit you. Don’t wait for the perfect timing or perfect life situation to start on your goals—it will likely never come. Start today, using whatever you have. I know you will crush it! -Tyler
This past week has been the most positively overwhelming time of my life. So humbling getting to hang out with my favorite producer's and audio heros!! Along with the copious amounts of knowledge and wisdom that was shared, I am so grateful for the new friendships and sense of family that I found throughout this amazing group of people. So much talent, motivation and comradery among these dudes and I have no doubt we will all go on to do amazing things. See you next year boys 🤘🏻 @urmacademy #urmsummit2017
Bueno, pues terminó la experiencia. Sólo puedo dar las gracias a Joey Sturgis, Joel Wanasek, Eyal Levi, Billy Decker, Brian Hood, Finn Mckenty, Matt Brown, Matt Halpern, Ryan Bruce, Andrew Wade, Kane Churko, Mike Mowery, Nick Pilotta y a todos los que asistieron por esta experiencia inolvidable. Ha sido un completo cambio en mi vida, conocer a todo el mundo ha sido lo que más me ha gustado y que siempre llevaré conmigo. Ahora mismo únicamente tengo ganas de volver y ponerme a trabajar duro en 2018 con mi nuevo proyecto Zafra Music, junto a mi gran amigo Lamberto Sanchez. Quiero hacer la mejor versión de cada banda, conociéndoles, conseguir plasmar la esencia de cada banda y conseguir el mejor sonido posible. Estad atentos porque 2018 viene cargado de sorpresas! Gracias a todos los que habéis confiado en mi y me apoyan, no os defraudaré ❤️
This week, I got a chance to spend time and make friends with some of the most driven and focused individuals in audio. For all of us, our trajectory has turned sharply upward, and our ability to navigate and destroy obstacles has greatly increased. And perhaps most of all, we have each other to depend and motivate ourselves on. Nothing will stop us. We are the Unstoppable Recording Machine. #URMSummit2017#nosmalltime#supershuttle
3 years ago today was a life changing experience when I met Joey Sturgis at the UKM bootcamp in Florida. Today at the URM Summit here in Florida, I get to thank him for everything he's done for my life, career and future. Words can't describe, nor could I ever thank you enough. You believing in me to be a real part of the future of audio...priceless. Thank You @joeyismusick, I won't let you down. #nosmalltime#urmsummit2017
@urmacademy #urmsummit2017 was amazing. Learned so much from @andrewade @unstoppablekillingmachine @joeyismusick @brianh00d @deckerboards @kanechurko @joelwanasek and @mbdrummer. Now to chill on the beach for a few days before I go home and start doin' work!
And it’s a wrap! Absolutely amazed that we got such a sick crew of people from Latvia, Colombia, Portugal, Germany and everywhere in between. We’re exhausted but never more inspired and stoked to keep supporting this community— a heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you!! #urmsummit2017
