RSR397 – Adam Greenspan – Recording Bloc Party & Mixing With Guitar Pedals in Pro Tools

It's all about the vibe! Adam talked about recording the Bloc Party Alpha Games, overdubbing cymbals, recording like Al Schmitt, guitar pedals mixing in the box, why the Mini Moog has nothing new to say, and where to use Slate Virtual Console.

My guest today is Adam Greenspan A Grammy-nominated engineer, mixer, and producer who had a pretty good start to his career engineering Faith No More’s “Album of the Year” at age 20. He later spent time at two world-class studios, Westlake Audio and The Village Recorder, working with artists such as Marilyn Manson, Rage Against the Machine, and Bono before going freelance in 2000.

Adam has been a guest on the show for episode RSR289 when we talked about his background in music. Today we will see what's new in his studio.

Thanks so much to Adris Evelis at JZ Microphones for making our introduction.
