Mastering Engineer Ian Shepherd On My Lastest Inner Circle Podcast

Ian ShepherdIf you take notice I have a lot of mastering engineer’s on my Inner Circle Podcast, and that’s because they’re pretty overlooked, usually keep a low profile, and what they do is generally misunderstood. That said, as you’ve probably heard by now if you listen to the show a lot, they all have great stories and musical depth. This week is no exception as mastering engineer Ian Shepherd joins me for a chat.
 
Ian has been a champion for keeping dynamic range in music, and is the founder of Dynamic Range Day. He’ll explain the pros and cons of keeping some dynamics in your music and how backing off on the loudness can actually be better for the audio quality these days.
In the intro I’ll look at the fact that most videos on Facebook are being watched with the audio turned off, as well as Facebook offering it’s Spatial Workstation virtual reality plugin suite for free.

Digital Drum Machine Creator Roger Linn On My Latest Inner Circle Podcast

Roger LinnDrum machines and software are so common anymore that it’s not a big deal, but there was a time when the only thing that was even close was the beat box commonly found on organs. Roger Linn changed all that with his LM1, the first modern drum machine that used real drum samples, and he’s my guest on this week’s episode.

Roger’s creation actually changed the face of music, as many of the 80s pop hits used his LM1, LinnDrum or Linn 9000 models. Later his MPC (in collaboration with Akai) became the rhythm sound of countless hip hop hits as well.

Besides being an inventor (his new Linnstrument and AdrenaLinn guitar pedal are quite unique), Roger’s also a recording engineer, guitar player, and even an accomplished songwriter, writing hits for both Eric Clapton and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

You’ll hear all about where his ideas came from, as well as more about his history on this week’s show.

In the intro I’ll take a look at the pirate radio revival, and go over a basic track checklist that will make your tracking session run a lot smoother.
