SONIC TALK 095 - I know we Brits are always going on about the weather, but when you've had 5 weeks of solid rain in the middle of what's supposed to be Summer, can you blame us?
I've got two more UK residents to join me from their waterlogged homes, Mark Tinley crack programmer and sound artist, and Dave Spiers from GForce Software who make excellent software instruments. On the sunny side of the pond, Rich Hilton from Chic and the Nile Rodgers camp chips in - just dont tell us how nice the weather is over there...
After I gloat about the Olypmpic medals table, we talk about good working practices to make sure your ears stay healthy when working in the studio, then on to manuals - paper and otherwise, followed by a spell on Alan Blumlein - grandaddy of stereo recording then the promising Girton Labs SenseSurface a sort of hybrid LCD/ hardware control system, then I wax lyrical about the iPod Touch and the pretty promising App Store from Apple - saviours of the developers?
We end on a blast of Isaac Hayes who sadly passed away on the 10th of August.
