RSR317 – Jaimeson Durr – Working With Sammy Hagar

Can you really rock with iPhones? Jaimeson talked about recording and mixing Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham, and Vic Johnson remotely in 2020 using nothing more than the built-in iPhone mic, and making the mixes rock!

My guest today is Jaimeson Durr a San Francisco Bay Area Top Billboard charting recording engineer, mixer and producer that works on a variety of music genres from legends like, Sammy Hagar and his band The Circle, Chickenfoot, Megadeth, Joe Satriani, The Dead, Don Felder (The Eagles), The Head and the Heart, Dan the Automator as well as many other new promising artists. 

Jaimeson works out of some of the best bay area recording studios but primarily works out of his own studio, Wally’s HydeOut in the legendary Hyde Street Recording Studio complex in San Francisco since 2004. It’s a classic studio where many well-known artists have recorded like, Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Green Day, Train, and many, many more. 

Jaimeson has also performed on and mixed several songs for hit prime time TV shows and movie trailers for, 90210, The Mindy Project, Ugly Betty, Rango, Arthur, The Lorax, Tangled and many more. He is a Waves Audio Artist who continually develops new presets for their plugins. With over 24 years of experience as a professional engineer, Jaimeson has a passion for the craft of making great timeless records that live forever.
