Excellent Live Sound Podcast!

S2N Episode 31 was great! Loved the conversation with Jeff Hawley. The “hear a trumpet in your mind” experiment reminded me of how easy it is to trick ourselves into thinking we are hearing something that we really aren’t, such as adjusting EQ just right, only to later realize we adjusted the wrong channel or the EQ was enabled!! But we were convinced we heard the change (or am I the only one who has done that?). The difference between vibrations and what we think we hear is hugely influenced by our mind / perception and as audio engineers, we need to be aware of this. It’s not just a fun late night conversation over tacos, it has practical ramifications.

Love the podcast, keep it up!
