Episode 427 – Music That Streaming Favors, A New Music Format, And Gearspace.com Founder Jules Standen

Gearspace.com founder Jules Standon on Episode 427 of Bobby Owsinski's Inner Circle Podcast

My guest this week is Jules Standen, who worked as an engineer with groups like The Lemonheads, The Smiths, and Siouxsie and the Banshees before starting an online forum for engineers in 2002.

That hobby eventually grew into Gearspace.com, a place for all things audio, from gear forums and classifieds to gear databases and reviews, Q&A sessions with famous producers and engineers, and a worldwide audio community. Gearspace is now celebrating its 20th year serving online audio geeks everywhere, with over one million discussion threads, 13 million posts and 400,000 members.

During the interview we talked about Jules engineering secret, how Gearspace got started, the questions most often asked on the forum, the most popular topic right now, and much more.

I spoke with Jules via zoom from his office in the U.K.

On the intro I’ll take a look at how some music genres that streaming favors more than others, and a new physical music distribution format that’s way better than vinyl but you may never see.
