Join us in the Pacific on Wednesday, May 25 at noon for a vintage audio hack chat with Frank Olson!
There was a time, and not so long ago on the cosmic scale, that if you want to listen to music, you either have to make it yourself or hire someone to do it for you. For most of history, music was the thing here and now, and when the song was over, it was.
Fortunately, those days are long gone, and for better or worse, we have instant access to the music we’re in the mood for. The Spotify client in your pocket is far from the iPod of a few years ago or the Walkman of the 80’s or even the transistor radio of the mid-century. But no matter how you listen to your music, it all starts with recording live music, and that’s where we go with this hack chat.
Frank Olson combines the primp, mixer, mic, and recorders that make modern music possible. You’ll probably recognize Frank’s name as the maker of the wooden microphone from his unique niche, but dig a little deeper and he’s got a lot of experience with vintage pro audio gear. As both a musician and an audio engineer, Frank Hack brings a passionate passion for recording gear to chat and we look forward to picking the unique way in his brain that he has found to transform words into music and reach everything.
