- EXCELLENT RESOURCE
February 19, 2018 by STRECK12 from United States
Graet podcast! I love the range of industry pro's Lij gets on this show. It really keeps things interesting. I like the focus and thoroughness in the explaination of audio concepts by both Lij and his guests. There is always great emphasis on source links which give the listener a chance to fully understand the topics discussed in podcast.

- So Much. So Good. Amazing Interviews
January 29, 2018 by Jim Edgar from United States
Every time I finish an episode, challenged, invigorated and humbled by the comments and insights from individuals Lij interviews, he outdoes himself with the next episode. Keep bringing it, sir. This podcast rocks.
January 25, 2018 by Ricky Rockstar (Really) from United States
If you're into the music recording process at all, this show is worth the time. The guests are really top dogs and have vast knowledge AND stories that are just great to hear! These stories, and the knowledge could be lost if not passed on. Thanks Lij! Rock On Rockstars!
- Great Podcast
January 24, 2018 by ddVibe from United States
I just started learning about audio about 6 months ago when I took an online course and also spent some time in a professional studio. My mentor at the studio encouraged me to check out this podcast, and it has been an amazing help for me to stay informed and inspired to keep working on my skills and knowledge and become a rockstar of the recording studio one day myself. I've listened to several similar podcasts as well, and this is by far my favorite - Lij's questions are on point and he is great at keeping the guest talking but interjecting when it is appropriate. Thanks Lij! Looking forward to future episodes as well as digging back into the older ones.

- A Wealth of Information
September 27, 2017 by The sound palace from United States
I run a small studio and subscribe to a number of audio-based podcasts. Each serves an important role. I cam across Recording Studio Rockstars and was intrigued by the name. After listening to a current one I went back to the first one and listened to each on sequentially. Many had interviews with people I never previoulsy heard of or presented topics I was sure would not be relevant to my situation. Without exception I always took away new useful information and tips for some facet of the audio world. Lij has a natural way about him and tends to ask questions of his guests almost at the moment I was starting to ask myself. Great work, Lij. Keep it up! If you're ever in California, drop by and we'll have our own "Jam Session."
- Lij is the man!

January 22, 2017 by Jordan N D from United States
Very impressed with this show. I am a professional recording engineer and music producer and I love listening to this show on my commute to work in the morning. Gives me new ideas and starts my day off with inspiration! I love that there’s someone out there portraying what the music industry is REALLY like…and not just touting gear and trying to sound smart all the time. Keep it up Lij!
- Very informative and entertaining
January 17, 2017 by Hermanzaum from United States
Lij shines as a very laid back interviewer (a bit silly sometimes though - but it's all good fun!) that scoops a whole lot of info about the music creation and recording process from renowed professionals. Although I'm a hobbyist, I do find this podcast invaluable and greatly entertaining. Being very well recorded, I can understand every single word from Lij and his guests - which can be hard for non-English speaking individuals like me if recording is subpar. Thanks Lij for this great repository of information!
- Pulled the fuse on my car radio!
January 14, 2017 by CaptShakey from United States
Wow- As a musician and recordest I just love Lij's show! Forget the car radio- I pop in my bluetooth earpiece and tune in to Recording Studio Rockstars all before I start the car! Fantastic! Educational and entertaining!

For someone that has been a musician and a lover of music since I was a small child this podcast is great.

I came across your podcast while listening while listening to Ian Shepherd interview you. I enjoyed the stories that you shares especially the hay bale studio. Any way I went over to check out your show and love it. The Harrison interview was awesome and insightful. As well as the weed whacking drummer. I look forward to listening to the rest of the shows.

August 19, 2016 by Carl Tatz from United States
I am very impressed with Lij's level of professionalism and attention to detail in his great Recording Studio Rock Stars podcast series. It was frankly beyond my expectations.He really did his homework before he conducted the interview that prepared him to ask intelligent questions that enabled my answers to provide the most value to his large and growing audience. Lij is definately ready to rock and a rock star himself in my estimation.
- Entertaining and incredibly insightful
August 5, 2016 by Frustrert Fønix from Norway
This podcast is by a seasoned audio engineer that really knows what he's talking about and conveys very articulately.
Each episode features a different engineer to discuss technique, mixing, tracking, gear, even the business side of music production.
And presenter Lij, is very humble and communicates well and interacts well with his guests. Even though the episodes are quite long they're jam-packed with tips and good advice.
I learn a lot every episode!
Thanks so much Lij!

I truly enjoy the down to earth interviews you have with your guests. Your questions are well thought out and designed to get the most from the guest. Thank you.
- Life-changing podcast
July 26, 2016 by Wyrlwynd from United States
This sounds like an overstatement, but it's not. That's what this has been for me. Lij Shaw interviews people in the business of recording, mixing, mastering, production, songwriting and all things "recording studio".
In addition to his own studio chops and experience, he has developed an excellent talent for interviewing the other pros, drawing out the classic tales of missteps, mayhem and meant-to-be happy accidents. Nostalgia, humor and minutiae pervade, but so do legitimate insider tips and tricks. Not all guests are created equal, but on the rare near-snoozers, I find myself listening more to Lij and cheering him on.
Thanks to Lij and the different pros that he has exposed his listeners to, I have actually learned how to mix songs. I'm still learning, but suddenly finishing a long lost dream to release my own solo album is within my grasp.
If you are interested in recording music, tune in to this podcast. Listen and learn. Lij rocks!
- Love the show
July 23, 2016 by Mztzza from United States
I have heard every show and loved every one of them. It has given me an insight into the making of records and has made me a better mixer and musicians. Thank Lij.
July 16, 2016 by Matt Recio from United States
This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts for pro audio. Along with practical advice about techniques and gear, it's cool to get insight into the industry and craft. The sounds you know from the songs you know--all discussed by the people who made it happen. Rock on, Lij !
- Awesome Show!
July 8, 2016 by Rick McVick from United States
This is the only recording podcast I can listen to. Loving every second of it!
- One of my favorite podcasts!
July 5, 2016 by Etil2 from United States
This podcast is awesome! Lyj's interview style is the right mix between respect for the interviewee and respect for his own knowledge to get great info. without letting egos into the conversation.
- Thank you!
June 5, 2016 by SaveThePolarBears from United States
Hey, Lij. Thank you for everything you are doing. I listen to your podcast regularly at work and the depth of knowledge I am gaining from it has already paid off multiple times while recording. Hearing different techniques and ideas from all of those renowned engineers, producers and musicians (including you, of course) is unbelievably helpful. I am currently on the third installment of your Mix Master Bundle and that is also paying off immediately. I don't know why you decided to open up and share the way you do but I can tell you that it is extremely helpful and sincerely appreciated.
- Totally rocks and inspires!

Lij Shaw's Recording Studio Rockstars podcast has quickly become one of my favorite recording-related podcasts.

January 29, 2016 by JWCouv from United States
I’ve struggled for years trying to record and mix my own music, but I’ve never gotten the results I’ve always wanted. It always felt like I was missing some piece of knowledge to really get the quality I wanted—Lij Shaw gave that to me. I’m now more knowledgeable about music production—but more importantly, I’m more excited about music, and it’s all thanks to this podcast.
- Great podcast for anyone into audio recording and mixing
January 25, 2016 by Ezzviah from Netherlands

October 30, 2015 by tbritton33 from United States
The Ian Shepherd interview was my introduction to this fantastic podcast, and I will now be listening to every past show and all future ones. Lij Shaw is a tremendous interviewer and host and really keeps the interviews on track while still allowing for a breezy and conversational style with surprise meanderings into the unexpected (still keeping everything relevant!) I cannot recommend it highly enough. (And Ian Shepherd nails it, so definitely listen-in to that one, too!)

Like few other recording engineers, Lij actually takes the time to be thorough and to make sure both new students and seasoned professionals grasp the concepts he is teaching. This guy has more tricks in his bag than the great Houdini and the best part is that he's willing to share them with us. This is more than just a podcast, it's a Treasure Trove of invaluable information that has changed the way I engineer and brought me to new levels of thinking about my studio and what it actually means to be an engineer. Lij is most definitely part guru!
- A wealth of information

Lij Shaw is talented, knowledgeable, passionate and knows how to talk about the studio in ways that non-professionals can understand. This isn’t his first Podcast, but this subject is one he knows extremely well. He stays busy in E. Nashville because he is a great human being, with great ears who knows how to listen and communicate, and delivers the highest quality musical product for his clients. He mastered my first ever solo release this May and it sounds incredible. This is a must listen for anyone interested in the recording studio and wants to learn how to improve their craft, whether it’s a songwriter, studio musician, or studio engineer.
- Not just for Engineers/Gear-heads

These podcasts cover a lot of great info! Hey are especially helpful to people just getting started in the recording industry and those who have been doing it professionally. Lij asks his guests questions all beginners ask at some point. My favorite question is, "if you were dropped into a random city, what recording equipment would you use, how would you find people to record, and how would you make ends meet while you do it." Keep them coming!
September 28, 2015 by ornellagreg from United States
A great podcast for both pros and beginners! Finally a show that explains what really goes on behind the scenes in the studio. As someone who is just getting into the audio world, this is the perfect podcast. Keep on keeping’ on Lij!!
- Genuine, entertaining insight into the recording process
September 26, 2015 by RapperBC from United States
I'm loving what I'm hearing here!
Finally! A killer podcast that delivers great interviews with experienced studio professionals, relating their stories of hard-won studio success, frustration, failure, hilarity and everything in-between… hence the name "Recording Studio Rock Stars".
Cool, colorful, informative and fun. Covers the artistic and technical aspects of recording with equal poise and skill. Perhaps its greatest strength is the balance between the artistic methods and vagaries of the studio and the technical details that make studios work day-to-day.
If you're interested in how studios work– or are a professional yourself, and just love hearing great studio stories– you should definitely have a listen!
- The REAL thing!!
September 24, 2015 by Marky Mark Moneystacks from United States
Wow! I am a professional recording engineer & music producer and if you want to hear about how things REALLY happen in the recording studio to make the music you listen to, this is the podcast!
