My guest today is Tyler Campbell CEO the founder of Alder Audio, an Ann Arbor, Michigan based company pushing the boundaries of ribbon mic design.  Alder Audio launched in February 2021 with the H44, a workhorse ribbon mic with a patented capsule and durable herringbone ribbon.   Before founding Alder, Tyler worked in product development as a chemist and engineer.  He specializes in developing products related to materials design and has worked on a diverse array of projects, from high power lithium batteries to automotive communication cable, to adhesives you can find on the shelf of your local hardware store.   Tyler is also a self-proclaimed gear addict and lifelong home recording enthusiast, who grew up with a front row seat to his family’s small manufacturing business in Wisconsin.  The H44 design is a direct result of his scientific background combined with his passion for audio, recording, and small business. I have been trying out the H44 and H44S here at The Toy Box Stusio aka RSR HQ and I have to say these mics sound really fantastic! One of the big challenges for me is recording things like drums with bright cymbals and acoustic and electric guitars that can sometimes be too harsh or vocals that have too much edge. The H44 does a beautiful job of smoothing out those instruments and making them mixable and listenable. So I’m happy to have Tyler joining us on the show today to learn more about Alder Audio and his mission to design a great ribbon microphone at a great price Get access to FREE mixing mini-course: http://MixMasterBundle.com THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS! https://RecordingStudioRockstars.com/Academy Use code ROCKSTAR to get 10% https://samplyaudio.com Use code RSR20 to get 20% off for the first 3 months https://www.Spectra1964.com http://MacSales.com/Rockstars http://iZotope.com/Rockstars use code ROCK10 for 10% off http://www.thetoyboxstudio.com https://www.sonarworks.com https://apiaudio.com http://UltimateMixingMasterclass.com Watch on YouTube: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbJhbD1bWQsyAyG1X6sabtofbfGiwY2zp If you love the podcast, then please leave a review: https://RSRockstars.com/Review CLICK HERE FOR COMPLETE SHOW NOTES AT: http://RSRockstars.com/353

My guest today is Eric Bazilian, an original member of The Hooters, producer, and musician writing and recording with other artists liken Cyndi Lauper, Joan Osborne, The Scorpions, Ricky Martin, Jonatha Brooke, Leanne Rymes, and William Wittman to name just a few. Eric has been a guest on the podcast on episode RSR122 to talk about his start in music and writing the song “One Of Us” for Joane Osborne on his kitchen table. So please go check out that episode too. Also, make sure to catch his video series Under The Hood where Eric breaks down all his music and writing methods. Email in 2021 “...Being stuck in Stockholm with limited resources (a 2012 MacBook Pro, Apollo Twin, one Gefell mic, a couple of electric guitars, a mandola, a keyboard controller, and a short scale Gretsch bass that my son bought when was twelve) afforded me the time and motivation to make my first solo album in almost twenty years. Drums were cut by my drummer in Philadelphia (challenging considering his total lack of engineering experience, but I made it work), and by my other drummer in Slovenia (recorded by a producer/engineer genius in an amazing studio). I mixed it myself on a pair of Yamaha HS5s, with a lot of input from some legendary mixers (including our pal John Fields), mastered by my guy in Slovenia. A real quarantine pandemic musical fairy tale.  Thanks again to John Fields for making our original introduction.

My guest today is Enrico Berto an engineer, producer, and musician from Northern Italy. I am very lucky to receive a lot of wonderful emails and messages from our listeners, aka you Rockstars. Here is what I received from Enrico. “Hello Lij, Few weeks ago I discovered your podcast and ever since I've been an avid consumer of it! I love the way you make your guests feel cause they open up in a way I rarely saw on other shows. Beside the great nerdy tips they seem to be willing to share deeper stuff - ex I now know what's Vance Powell monthly break even or that huge mixers still suffer from "impostor syndrome" - and this is very inspiring and precious. I've been in the music industry as a session player, then a mixer/producer for nearly 20 years and as covid hit I was having a major momentum that got slowed down quite a bit. Listening to your podcast is a great source of inspiration and it's giving me the power to keep my head down and carry on with the grind. I thank you so much for it! I have a vast love for music in all its genres. If I really had to pinpoint some they would be Classic Rock, Alternative Rock and HipHop. I make music because of a deep, almost spiritual, connection to it. Making music is my passion and my call. I decided to turn it into my profession so my whole life could revolve around it.  I went to the University to study foreign languages and literature but later attended the Musician Institute in Los Angeles and a couple of Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craft seminars. And then decided to give the music a serious go so I started hustling. I played in bands, composed jingles for TV, taught guitar, recorded and mixed bands on a crappy laptop out of mouldy rehearsal spaces …you name it! I was eager to get more so I pushed further by moving to London and studying sound engineering at the SAE Institute. I then began session playing, touring, producing and engineering full time, all of it bouncing between UK and Italy. In 2008 I founded Mushroom Studio: a little production heaven hidden on the mountains of northern Italy where other artists and I could cozy up and create.” I’m always grateful to receive emails like this, and listening to Enrico‘s work I discovered that it was fantastic! And so nothing brings me greater joy than to help showcase members of our own community at Recording Studio Rockstars.  Get access to FREE mixing mini-course: http://MixMasterBundle.com THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS! https://RecordingStudioRockstars.com/Academy Use code ROCKSTAR to get 10% https://samplyaudio.com Use code RSR20 to get 20% off for the first 3 months https://carltatzdesign.com/Mixroom-Mentor https://www.Spectra1964.com http://MacSales.com/Rockstars http://iZotope.com/Rockstars use code ROCK10 for 10% off http://www.thetoyboxstudio.com http://UltimateMixingMasterclass.com Hear guests discography on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3hXsJvZHlwDgfISd057ZeA?si=612c396661a04fdd If you love the podcast, then please leave a review: https://RSRockstars.com/Review CLICK HERE FOR COMPLETE SHOW NOTES AT: http://RSRockstars.com/338

My guest today is Nick Broste, an audio engineer and musician who works in a wide variety of musical situations, ranging from creative improvisation to popular, folk and new music forms. He has engineered hundreds of recordings and performed all over the world, from tiny clubs to huge festivals and live television.   Having spent much of his youth obsessed with music but in a small midwestern town, Nick moved to Chicago in 1996, where he attended music school and began performing around the city and on the road, all the while soaking up any new sounds he could find. Touring with bands led to performing in the recording studio, where he began to get interested in the capture, manipulation and reproduction of audio.  In 2005 Nick moved into the Shape Shoppe, an underground music, art and living space with a 16 track analog studio, where he was able to experiment and teach himself how to record, eventually re-designing and completely rebuilding the space in 2008. At the same time Nick began mixing bands live in venues, trying to give both the musicians and audiences the best experience possible. This spirit of removing the obstacles of artistic expression for artists is the driving force for Nick's work to this day, no matter which side of the microphone he is on. Nick can currently be found working freelance in studios such as Electrical Audio, Shirk, Palisade, Narwhal and Jamdek in Chicago, around the world and wherever interesting sounds are being made. And his clients include Wilco, TV on the Radio, Broken Social Scene, The Walkmen, Cursive, Mucca Pazza, Head of Femur, Calexico/Iron & Wine, and Afghan Whigs to name just a few. Thanks so much to Greg Norman for making our introduction.
