This week’s guest is Steve Genewick, who’s worked at Capitol Studios in Hollywood for 25 years.
During that time he’s had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of legendary artists including Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Queen, George Harrison, Michael Jackson and many more.
Steve has also been able to work closely with some of the greatest engineers ever, including Al Schmitt and Geoff Emerick, among many others. He has also worked on the music for the Academy Awards for the last 20 years, including some huge setups that probably couldn’t be done anywhere else.
After working on a number of high-profile 5.1 surround mixes in the past, Steve is now focusing much of his attention on Dolby Atmos immersive audio mixing with some spectacular results.
During the interview we spoke about the wide variety of clients at Capitol Studios, what goes on behind-the-scenes while recording the music for the Academy Awards, lessons learned from legendary engineers, making the transition to immersive audio mixing, and much more.
On the intro I’ll also take a look at the musician’s labor relations and a possible producer’s union, and the latest acquisition by the Focusrite Group.
