Episode #334 – Producer/Plugin Developer Dan Korneff, 50% Visa Increase, And An Immersive Audio Format War
- You won’t see too many mid-level foreign artists touring after a 50% visa price increase
- Get ready for the immersive audio wars as Sony 360 Reality Audio is released
- Producer/mixer/engineer and plugin developer Dan Korneff
Producer, mixer and engineer Dan Korneff has not only worked with prominent names like Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, Papa Roach, Lamb of God and My Chemical Romance, but has developed some of the coolest audio plugins available.
Dan not only knows how to expertly use his audio gear, but he also knows what makes it all tick inside as well, being very hands-on when it comes to modifying consoles, vintage outboard gear and microphones.
That led Dan to create his first plugin called the Pawn Shop Comp, which is like a combination of vintage tube and FET compressors blended together to create something really unique.
His latest plugin is the Talkback Limiter that faithfully emulates the sound of the famed SSL talkback mic circuit made famous by Phil Collins, but with a lot more versatility.
During the interview we talked about initially getting into DIY gear, the idea behind Dan’s plugins, using a console for mixing, having a studio dog, his favorite mixing and production tricks, and much more.
On the intro I’ll take a look at it’s about to get expensive for foreign musicians to tour the States, and the the new immersive audio format war.
