In episode 55, Bruce answers some listener e-mail.
We’ve got an iTunes Lame plugin,
a mention for CDEX (for the PC users),
plus we get Steve G from the Audiomasters forum on the blower for a chat about Dolby noise reduction and mic pre amps.
I asked Steve G for a 50 word summary of his career, and this is what he said:
I’m a consultant. I spent my late teens building pipe organs, and then moved into electronics and computing. A subsequent change of direction took me into TV production and recording studio management. I’ve studied acoustics extensively, and throughout most of my career I’ve been producing and recording music and speech.
That’s 50 words, but I don’t think it really says very much about me at all, quite frankly!
I’ve asked him for a 150 work summary instead! Stay tuned.
Update 1st May.
Here’s Steve’s slightly longer career/life summary:
I started messing about with tape and recording in the sixties – by building a tape recorder. I’d been curiously attracted to pipe organs as a child, and took up organ building as a teenager, only to get a little disillusioned with it as a career. So I ended up studying electronics, and spent a while in mainframe computing and various forms of A/V work. I was still recording stuff though – and yet another career change took me into TV and radio production and post-production, closely followed by studio management, and yet more recording â€“ only the range of it increased. This lasted quite a long time, during which I also studied, amongst other things, acoustics quite extensively. I got relocated, didnâ€™t like the commute, so ended up working freelance as a consultant, which is what Iâ€™m doing now. And Iâ€™m still recording.
Married twice, I have several children and grandchildren, and am effectively owned by an extremely large cat called Izzy.
