My guest is Kirk Bowman, host and producer of The Art of Value Podcast. Kirk is seriously on top of his game in the area of podcast production. We had fun discussing his equipment, workflow and processing, etc. (list of topics is below)

I asked Kirk to send me the stock settings for the Broadcast preset in the multiband compressor which comes with Adobe Audition (because tons folks use this preset). Here’s the screenshot with all the settings:

Kirk also told me about a channel strip which has a phase ‘rotation’ function (which is different than the much more popular phase ‘inversion’). Here it is – the Aphex Channel:

Here are some other things we discussed:

  1. MOTU 1248 interface
    • 4 XLR inputs
    • Routing matrix
    • AVB (audio over ethernet used to connect multiple interfaces together)
    • Thunderbolt to Mac
    • Built-in effects
  2. Match Loudness in Adobe Audition
  3. Multitrack recording
  4. Processing each track to -18 LUFS using Auphonic
  5. Multiband compression during mixdown
  6. Editing
  7. Upgrading equipment as he grew

Thanks for being a great guest, Kirk!
