My guest this week is 3 time Grammy-winning engineer Mark Linett. Mark and his partner Bob Wartinbee have operated their remote audio truck as the West Coast branch of Music Mix Mobil, but will now continue as a new independent company, M&B Audio.
For the last 11 years, M&B’s 40′ state of the art mobile audio truck ‘Horizon’ has recorded numerous iconic events, including the Grammy Awards, The Oscars, MTV’s VMA’s, ten years at the CMA’s, the iHeartRadio Music Awards and Festivals. They’ve also done projects for a wide range of artists including Coldplay, The Eagles, Stevie Wonder, U2, Motley Crew, Linkin Park, Miley Cyrus, and Sean Mendez, to name a few.
During the interview, we spoke about how live recording has changed over the years, the workflow of award shows, his conversion to digital audio, and much more.
