Todd Burke: Gain Structure, Being Committed, and Digging in the Tape Vault
This week's guest is veteran recording engineer and score mixer Todd Burke. As a score mixer he's worked on movies such as The Big Sick, The King of Staten Island, Daddy's Home 2, and Donnie Darko. On the record side of things his credits include names like Fitz and the Tantrums, M83, The Kooks, Ben Harper, and The Temper Trap, among many others. Todd's also recently banded together with several other engineers to launch a platform to share their experience with the next generation of engineers and producers. We have a great chat about being self taught, launching recordBetter, and being committed to decisions.
