There has always been a need to standout or create more “sensation” around individual tracks within the confines of the music industry. But where and when do these tactics start to negatively effect the music? And more importantly, will the industry ever heed the call to avoid these convenient pitfalls? Dave’s extensive experience in music production provides some much-needed insights, as does fellow interviewee Grover Neville. The duo provide an interesting duality of analog and digital, Dave being vastly familiar with the former, and Grover having been born straight into a more complete picture of the digital “golden age” of production. For another peek into how Dave’s audio brain works, you should also check out his recent piece on audiophile terminology: HiFi – What Does It Sound Like?
The Loudness Wars show this week with Dave McNair and Grover Neville drives us further into our education series in Season 4. Season three was a memorable one, seeing interviews with such audio legends as Jeff Joseph, Bill Dudleston, Nelson Pass and most recently Rob Watts. We had an amazing response from our last show with Dave exploring all things Mastering and if you haven’t checked out our beginners guide to reel-to-reel playback, it’s definitely worth a listen.
