New Website!

Long long ago, I used to maintain a little recording tips website and forum here at The audio chatter has always been more of a labor of love, and at some point the labors of responsibility and money got in the way. I pulled the old site down intending to get something back up quickly, and well… that was a few years ago!

So, now I’m back in black… or, um, orange and blue. But back nonetheless!

The plan for this site is to offer my thoughts and experience with regard to audio production. I’ve learned a lot over the last eighteen years as a recordist/producer, and much of that has been through apprenticing, working and chatting with earlier generations of engineers. I’ve always wanted to give some of that back, and I am occasionally reminded of how much I love discussing audio. So I’ll be hanging out here as much as possible.

I’ll be going back through the old forum posts and articles and slowly bringing over whatever I feel is still relevant. But more than anything I hope to get some video tutorials and articles going on the topics which most interest you. So, please use the suggestions tab to the right or shoot me a Tweet or Facebook wall post with any thoughts you have for content direction. I’m all ears.

Please understand that anything I say here — no matter how curmudgeonly — is simply my opinion based on my experience and preferences. If you disagree, cool. Feel free to comment and we’ll debate it. But please use civility and good sportsmanship when commenting. Maybe stop at three beers before posting, unless — like me — you’re a sweet, silly drunk. Otherwise, venture over to, Electrical forum or TapeOp forums if you want to start a fight.
