RSR365 – Chris Shaw – Soundflow, Stream Deck, and Other Tools for Modern Mixing In Pro Tools

Stream Decks, iPads, iPhones, Faders and Midi Foot Controllers... Oh My! Chris talked about setting up his studio for maximum speed and ease using Soundflow and the AVID S1 for Pro Tools to automate editing and mixing tasks saving hours and days!

My guest today is Chris Shaw a four-time Grammy Award-winning American producer, engineer, mixer, and musician. He is a veteran of Greene Street Recording in New York recording Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, Run-DMC, and LL Cool J. And has moved on to independent production, mixing, and engineering working with Weezer, Wilco, Bob Dylan, Death Cab For Cutie, Nada Surf, and The Derek Trucks Band to name only a few. He has even been credited for working on six of Rolling Stone's "500 greatest Records of All Time".

Originally based in New York, Chris relocated to the Austin, Texas area in 2013 where he joined us on the podcast for episode RSR246. We are psyched to have Chris back again to learn whats new at his mixing studio in Austin and geek out on controllers and mixing automation.
