RSR463 – Harold Larue – Mixing & Mastering Tips for Home Studios

Don't sweat the noise too much! Harold talked about derressering masters, iZotope RX ninja tips, phase aligning mixes, how to use mid side eq, mastering Moogs, bass wins in big vs small control rooms, LUFS targets, and why linear eq + hip hop = bad.

My guest today is Harold LaRue, a GRAMMY-winning mastering engineer in Houston, Texas. Harold’s recent clients include contemporary jazz masters: The Wayne Shorter Quartet, Terri Lynn Carrington, and Joey Alexander — synth sorceress: Lisa Bella Donna, and R&B legend: Jeffrey Osborne.

Harold has worked as a software developer, pro-audio service manager, theatrical sound engineer, and restaurateur and was the monitor engineer for the Houston Symphony Orchestra before leaving to focus on his growing mastering business.

As an audio educator, Harold has developed and taught studio production and mastering courses at universities and recording schools across the country. He continues to present public workshops and teach privately. He is a Voting Member of the Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing, Audio Engineering Society, and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. Check out our previous interview on episode RSR225 to learn more about Harold’s backstory.

I want to dedicate this episode to the late great audio designer and engineer Glenn Coleman whom Harold introduced me to at NAMM 2020.

RSR454 – Joe Hutchinson – How To Master A Record

Uboats will float your Atomic Instruments! Joe talked about his new mastering studio Garage Masters, how to get loudness right for streaming, set up your mastering session in Presonus Studio One, do song spacing, and choose limiters, eq, and plugins.

My guest today is Joe Hutchinson, a mastering engineer at Garage Masters in Nashville, TN where Joe has been providing mastering services for over 10 years. 

Joe works in a well-designed room built in 2022 and uses a combination of analog and digital tools to give each song or project what it needs. Every project is different, and what happens in mastering can vary from heavy-handed processing to being almost transparent. Often mastering will catch little things missed in the production/mixing process since a mastering engineer offers a fresh set of ears, and in that sense acts as the quality control at the end of the recording process.

Joe was my mastering engineer at the Hay Bale Studio at Bonnaroo for many years and has been a guest on the podcast for episode RSR013 where you can hear his backstory. Today we will talk about what's new in mastering and see what we can learn for our own studios as well.
