Episode #274 – Amazon Music, Aerosmith In Vegas, And Producer/Engineer Greg Penny Talks Immersive Audio
My guest this week is at the forefront of mixing music in Dolby Atmos. Greg Penny has produced hits with k.d. lang, Cher, and Paul Young, among others, but a meeting with Elton John while Greg was in his teens turned into an award-winning mixing journey with the legend many years down the road.
Besides producing and mixing Elton’s many albums in surround, Greg is now mixing them in the latest immersive audio format, and he’ll tell us more about how it all works in just a bit.
During the interview we spoke about sitting in on Elton’s Yellow Brick Road sessions, the differences between mixing in Atmos and 5.1, recording the Vatican Choir in surround, and much more.
The intro takes a look at how Amazon Music is coming on strong with new subscribers, and at Aerosmith’s immersive audio Las Vegas residence.
