The final segment features an interview with Bruce Botnick, a producer/engineer who started his career back in 1963, and who has worked with such mega acts as the Doors, the Beach Boys, and many more. Now an enthusiastic user of Digidesign‘s Pro Tools and its Icon console, Botnick has moved heavily into film music production, and has worked with Jerry Goldsmith, among other composers. In this interview, Botnick talks about the differences between his analog and digital recording experiences, what it was like to work with Jim Morrison in the studio, and more.

Mix NAMM Day 2 Podcast

I found a lot of cool gear here today! You’ve got to hear about the new DI/reamper from producer/engineer Michael Wagener (:50) and the latest mic release from Mojave Audio (12:11). The absolute best part of today was listening to Steve White (5:51), he’s a blues player that lives just north of San Diego and mesmerized everyone that came across his path. I’ve got a short clip that’s a must listen. I also talked to Line 6 about a great new guitar/vocal/everything plug (7:45) and SoundToys about their latest products (13:40). Last but not least, Digi showed me three great plugs that provide tape saturation, delay and flanging (15:33). Fridays are nuts but Saturdays are like the 405 during rush hour.
