Audio engineering is one of those skills that I didn’t learn out of necessity, or out of a desire to become a more valuable employee. I do it because I love it. I’ve recorded entire live album sessions with friends and high-quality podcasts for my work, and a whole bunch of other personal projects. I hope that my love to shaping sound comes through.
Above, you can listen to my most recent podcasts that I’ve produced. For Episode #13-Episode #38, the vast majority of them I personally recorded using gear that I selected, in-office. I then edited each line of dialogue, faded in and out, EQ’d, compressed, mixed music, automated various settings and mastered the track.
For episodes after #38, the physical recordings are taking place in our office in DC. I am currently (as of Aug. 1) freelancing and doing the producing remotely.
Here is a list of the gear that we use for recording our podcasts. At the beginning of my time with Providence, I selected the gear and set up a new workflow.
- SM7B (2x)
- Scarlett Focusrite 2i2
- Logic Pro X for recording, mixing, mastering
- On-Stage Kick Boom stands
- Generic XLR cables
- Sony HD 280 PRO (3x) for monitoring
- Audio Technica ATH-M50X for mixing
