RSR131 – How To Sound Analog In A Digital World with Johnnie Truesdale – Recording Steve Martin, Tony Bennett, and Harry Belafonte

Johnnie talked about recording bluegrass with Steve Martin, getting an old school analog sound in your DAW, and using software guitar simulators.

My guest today is Johnnie Truesdale, a Grammy winning engineer, producer, mastering engineer, and audio teacher. Starting at Bennett Studios in Englewood, New Jersey with classic artists such as: Steve Martin, Tony Bennett, Harry Belafonte, Anita Baker, Ravi Coltrane, John Patitucci, and Andy LaVerne. He also got experience working with great producers like Phil Ramone and John McEwen. 

In 2011, he moved to Los Angeles to become a teacher at SAE Institute in Los Angeles.  And recently moved to Nashville to build his own recording, mixing, and mastering Studio, FireFly Sound, in Brentwood, TN.  

Today we have incredible digital tools available to us in the studio through modern DAWs and plugins that can do things that were never even possible 10 or 20 years ago. But sometimes we find ourselves making records that can feel a little too digital, and long for the sound of the classic analog albums that we grew up with.

Johnnie has experience working with both analog, and digital, and is going to talk about he gets the best of both worlds in the studio. So the theme of today’s episode is to learn How To Sound Analog In A Digital World.   @fireflysound   Instagram
