Live sound engineer and producer Steve Lagudi (Machine Head) joins us to talk about something that doesn’t usually get enough attention: live sound.
We’re all working on becoming better in the studio, but something a lot of mixers don’t spend enough time considering is live sound. Working live sound is a great way to boost your overall mixing skills. Just for starters, the discipline to commit to sounds is something all producers could stand to learn. Live sound is also it’s own beast in many ways. Steve Lagudi has a wealth of knowledge to share that’s going to help you tame that beast.
“Your work is what does it, it’s not about your resume.” – Steve Lagudi
