In the good ol’ days, songs and albums were recorded without technology like compression. At that time, it was imperative to find the sweet spot manually. Microphone positioning was everything.

These days, we tend to rely quite a bit more on technology and post production methods to achieve the desired sounds. But what if there was a way to use new technology combined with the microphone positioning practices of the past to get those sweet spots even easier and quicker?

Mike Russo, Co-Founder and CTO for DynaMount, joins us in this episode to share their story from idea to today’s success of their original models, their journey over the past year to bring their new “Echo-PT” model to market for the broadcast industry, and how their products are saving hours of time for both recording and live sound engineers.

DynaMount, started in 2015, designs and builds remote microphone positioners that can aid in finding an instrument's sweet spot all from the ease to use interface on your iOS device. Before we relied on technology like compression and other post production methods to achieve the desired sound and quality, recording engineers would have to find the sweet spot manually. Microphone positioning was everything then, and it could be again. DynaMount's products are bringing the engineering back to sound engineering.

As technology and music continue to mesh and evolve, musicians sometimes find themselves in new and awkwardly frustrating situations. For example, when attempting to learn to play the guitar, while watching video lessons, and trying to play or record on the computer, it can feel like we’re expected to grow another limb just to be able to manage all of the fancy new ways we need to multi-task.

With SMASHmouse, there’s no need for a third arm. Just add your feet! Robb Dillon, inventor and founder, saw the need for a better solution to these simple yet familiar challenges. Now you can use your foot to control software and other applications on digital devices, allowing you to keep on playing without the headaches!

Robb joins us in this episode to share his story behind SMASHmouse, how it can help musicians now, and how the technology and ideas behind SMASHmouse can easily be adapted in the future for other applications, including gaming and assistive technology for those with special needs when controlling digital devices. #behindthebackline #music #musicgear #SMASHmouse

Happy Throwback Thursday! This week is a "sort of throwback (story)": I've had this clock for as long as I can remember. In fact I can't remember where it even came from! However, it cymbalizes (pun intended) my primary choice in actual cymbals for the past 2 decades (except for the one Paiste ride I've had since day one). I remember that it did take awhile to get used to a clock with no face (young people problems), but it has been dependable and solid for years. It gives a whole new meaning to the musician saying "stay in time". :) #cymbals #zildjian #clock #keepthebeat #stayintime

These days it seems like there is an early learning process or product for everything, and it keeps targeting children at a younger and younger age. Except for the keyboard and “touch and learn” type educational toys for kids, there never seemed to be anything that truly developed a child’s imagination or nurtured their love of music and audio creation. Until now.

Troy Sheets, founder and inventor, joins us in this episode to talk about what the Blipblox is, who it’s for, why he felt inspired to pursue and create it, and how it might be considered a good “gateway drug” for future musicians and producers. #behindthebackline #music #musicgear #synthesizer #beatbox

If I read one more gratuitous clickbait headline that says, "Streaming Is Saving The Music Business," or "Blockchain Is Going To Save The Music Business" I think I'm going to scream. The recorded music business surely is facing many problems now, had them in the past, and will have them in the future, but to say that it will be saved from them by a technology is ignoring its rich history with technology. #blockchain #music #musicbusiness #streaming #technology https://octv.me/2JpXa25

In case you missed it...

What do aviation avionics and guitar pedals have in common? Paul Flattley, of course!

Achieving perfection in sound, quality, and personalization can be quite the daunting task when it comes to making custom guitar pedals, but when perfection is basically a requirement when you’re working in the aviation avionics industry, the idea becomes second nature and way easier if it’s something you’ve already been doing for 30 years.

Flattley Guitar Pedals is a small family run company in the Southwest of England. Each pedal they make is individually created by hand, given a personalized touch, and rigorously tested until it meets their very high standards. On top of that, most models can be fitted with a halo light plate with your choice of LED color. Can you imagine a guitar pedal being any more uniquely tailored to each player than that? #behindthebackline #music #musicgear #flattleyguitarpedals #guitar #guitarpedals #england
