Producing artist Austin Bustad

San Fernando Valley Symphony

Richard Egizi is a wonderful composer who writes truly beautiful melodies and harmony. I’ve just completed the music preparation of manuscripts for his orchestral piece “Le quattro fasi di sesso femminile”, which will be played by the San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra in late September. I have been Richard’s music copyist on four projects now, and he has always been a real pleasure to work with.

Building more high-end microphone preamps

Ever the do-it-yourself creative type, I recently built more top-notch microphone preamps for my studio. This is a matched stereo pair of Class A tube preamps. Depending on the gain settings they go from clean and warm to highly colored and a little gritty. They will be a useful addition to the studio, and because of the tubes they double as a little space heater too. These kits are from Scott Hampton at Hamptone.
