René picked up some Rode NT5-O omni capsules for his (dormant) pair of NT5s recently, and produced a pretty deep dive into the recordings he’s made while exploring them recently.
In this episode we talk to some authors of recent pro audio related books. David Weiss tells us about the brand new book he co-wrote called “Music Supervision: The Complete Guide To Selecting Music for Movies, TV, Games & New Media”. Damian Kastbauer checks in with his two part tome “Game Audio: Tales of a Technical Sound Designer”. Jay Rose, a noted raconteur, talks up his book “Producing Great Sound for Film & Video: Expert Tips from Production to Final Mix”. Ric Viers and his son Sean do a reading of the opening chapter from their new book “Make Some Noise: Sound Effects Recording for Teens”. Finally Gordon Hempton graces us with a reading from his newest book “Earth Is A Solar Powered Jukebox”. We also review a great book for young kids (ages 3-6) called “Do You Hear What I Hear” that teaches them how to think about the sounds around them.
