In Episode 44 of the Indie Music Podcast, Matt and Doug interview Matt Bacon, head of Dropout Media and co-host of the Dumb and Dumbest podcast. We talk about the life of a label executive, music PR, Taiwanese Baseball, and most importantly, what bands should be doing right now to increase their audience and reach.
Doug and Matt ask the big question, what is mastering? In this discussion we get beyond the strictly audio side of what people call the ‘dark art’ of music mastering and into the other, less-discussed things a mastering engineer brings to the table. Topics covered include metadata, file formats, the RIAA curve for vinyl, and more.
Doug and Mojo finish off their recording and mixing series with a discussion of arguably the most important and tricky part of a mix, the vocals. Topics covered include room treatment, mic choice, mic technique, mixing tips and more!
