    Episode #340 – Producer Gareth Jones, The Rise Of Fake Artists, And Mixing ITB Acceptance

    NEWS











    * The rise of fake artists in streaming















    * Even old analog engineers are now okay with mixing in-the-box















    GUEST







    * Producer/engineer Gareth Jones















    My guest this week is producer/ engineer Gareth Jones, who’s a pioneer in the use of cutting edge digital equipment, sampling technology, and synthesizers. 







    Gareth produced five albums for techno innovators Depeche Mode and six albums for synth-pop superstars Erasure, and many more. 







    As the mixer of John Foxx’s seminal album Metamatic, he realized that an artist could truly define his sound with electronics. Then, as the co-producer of many of Depeche Mode’s greatest works, he helped to create experimental music with global chart appeal.







    Trained at the BBC, Gareth got his start recording the best of London 1980’s new wave and industrial artists before he moved to Berlin to work at the legendary Hansa Studios.







    During the interview we talked about taking advantage of unforeseen opportunities, his love of modular synthesis, life on the bleeding edge of technology, the appeal Logic Pro, and much more.







    On the intro I’ll take a look at the rise of fake artists, and why even die-hard analog engineers are okay mixing in the box today.

    GUEST







    * Studio designer and Phantom Focus developer Carl Tatz* Hear more from Carl on Episode #17















    Carl Tatz has gone from being a studio owner in Nashville to designing studios, mixing rooms and listening rooms for some of the biggest clients in the world. He then took that to another level by  developing his own technology and products.

    Along the way he incorporate his own products into the mix, which includes monitors, subwoofers, amplifiers, monitor stands, workstations and even a specialized eChair that helps keep the listener locked into the sweet spot.

My Favorite Podcast, simple as that!

I’m not sure what I love so much about this podcast. Maybe it’s the simple format, maybe it’s Bobby straight up intelligent approach, but as a musician, hobby recording @ home guy, and just a general music fan, I think this is one of the most interesting and well done podcasts in the genre. I really enjoy it…..thanks for doing it Bobby ….. and making my commutes enjoyable….I even sometimes wish they were longer! now that's praise!
