Producer/multi-instrumentalist and educator David Franz wrote the very first book on Pro Tools as well as creating online courses for both Berklee Online and Lynda.com. 

Besides running his label Underground Sun and EDM artist development and even production company Underground Sol, David is also the content manager for Lynda.com and LinkedIn Learning, where he works with creative professionals to create courses (including yours truly) to create courses on the platform.

During the interview we spoke about writing the first book on Pro Tools, doing a deep analysis of John Coltrane, his Airstream trailer-based studio, the technique of melding electronic and live musicians together, recording an album remotely, and much more.

On the intro I’ll take a look at the passing of the great Rupert Neve, and how labels are changing their emphasis away from radio promotion.
