Kevin talks about the old music industry versus the new music industry, metadata, and the importance of networking.

Kevin Becka has been a recording engineer for over 25 years, working with top names in the music industry including Kenny G., Quincy Jones, Michael Bolton, George Benson, George Lynch, and more.

Also an experienced educator, Kevin is currently the co-director and an instructor at The Blackbird Academy in Nashville. He has taught advanced recording at Belmont University, surround recording and lecturer at the Danish Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen, Denmark, and was director of education and instructor at the Conservatory of Recording Arts for over 10 years.

As a journalist Kevin has worked as editors of Pro Audio Review and Audio Media USA magazines. And Since 2003, Kevin has been the technical editor of the industry-leading Mix Magazine where he writes features, product reviews and a monthly column. Kevin is also a voting member of The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), the Country Music Association (CMA), and the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP).

If you heard my interview with Gebre Waddell of then you might be familiar with the RIN-M plugin designed to let you gather all your music’s metadata while you work from your DAW. Kevin introduced me to to Gebre and the RIN-M this summer at NAMM, and wrote a free book explaining how to use RIN-M which we are going to discuss today.
