My guest is Alex Knight, producer/engineer at Hologram Radio, podcaster, and product manager at FeedPress.

Here’s the partial list of the topics we discussed and the wisdom that flowed in this session:

  • Shure SM7B, into a Warm Audio WA-12 mic pre (which models an old API), into a dbx 266 (for a little bit of compression)
  • Aphex 204 aural exciter
  • Mackie VLZ1604, analog mixer with 8 direct outs
  • Avid M-box 3 (interface)
  • Pro Tools, sometimes Audition
  • Studio in living room with L-shaped IKEA desk, some acoustic panels, mic boom arms
  • 6 channel headphone amp
  • A 14U rack of gear and a patch bay! wow
  • dbx 286 channel strip
  • FabFilter Pro-Q 2 (for some low cut filtering)
  • Using Compressors, de-essers, expanders
  • Normalize each track to -19 LUFS
  • Music pre-loaded in a template
  • LM-Correct 2 (Loudness plugin)
