Hiding In Plain Sight When it comes to “getting the gig,” being selected from a… View this post

    Brandon Darner has only one rule when producing: the music must speak to him, regardless of the genre. He also chooses API for that “conversation.” “I travel a lot for my work, but I also have a lot of materials sent to me—so I wanted to have a great console for when my partner and I are doing mixes.” One of the mixes Darner is referring to was Imagine Dragons’ first album Night Visions. “The 1608 was a fantastic solution… View this post

    In the grand scheme of things, audio engineering is a pretty mysterious field, at least for most people. When asked what I do for a living, “I’m an audio engineer” is often met with puzzlement, so I quickly amend, “You know, I’m a sound person. I run sound for concerts and events.” For many folks, this is when the light comes on – one woman said, “Oh, you’re the guy, like at my church, in the back who turns all… View this post

    Many moons ago, I was approached by a very talented local musician with a common request. “Can you do a project for me? I don’t really have any money, but…” Just fill in that last part with whatever excuse, incentive or promise you feel like pulling from your own experiences. Since these requests arrived so frequently, I developed one of my core philosophies about business. It didn’t matter if it concerned studio projects, live shows or installations; the concept is… View this post
