The Audio Archives – Volume 1: Bernie Broderick

The kickoff of a new oral history series presenting the history and heritage of professional audio.

There are some truly amazing people at work in the audio industry, and I’m incredibly fortunate to call many of them friends. I was reading Don Davis’s writings about Richard Heyser, and I felt thankful that Richard’s brilliance lived on, preserved in part by Don’s writing. The Audio Archives is my humble attempt to preserve and spread the knowledge, wisdom, and personality of this generation’s audio pioneers.

My first Archives conversation is with my friend Bernie Broderick, who has over two decades of experience with some of the industry’s top loudspeaker manufacturers – L-Acoustics, EAW, Adamson – and now runs Truth In Audio, a company focused on audio training, education, and industry promotion to the next generation of audio engineers. Please enjoy my conversation with Bernie and stay tuned for more.

Note: This interview consists of two separately recorded telephone conversations. I’ve edited out a few minutes of personal conversation at the beginning of Part 1. We join Bernie as he’s explaining the principles behind Truth In Audio.
