Episode 7 – Holiday Episode with Louie Gonzalez

Hello everybody!! Merry Christmas!!! I hope that you all had an amazing Christmas and Holiday with your loved ones. This week we have no guest as I did not want to pull anyone away from their families and friends. Instead, I dabble a bit as to what DAWs are out there and what to look for in one. I also, go over choosing the correct interface as well as the age old question, Mac or PC?

At the moment I am not sure if there is going to be an episode for the New Year but I may end up doing another one like this one so that I do not pull anyone away from their loved ones. As always, if you have any questions or any suggestions as to what you would like for us to go over please do not hesitate reaching out: info@gearnbeerspodcast.com



Signal Chain

For this episode, I kept the chain pretty basic given that I had to record using Studio One. I left my iLok Key at home and it derailed my flow, but, the show must go on. Here is the chain:


Shure SM7B > RedNet 4 > RedNet 1 Output > JDK Audio R24 EQ > ART PRO VLA II Compressor > Burl B2 Bomber > RedNet D16 > Studio One 3

As mentioned on the podcast, for this episode I monitored the output of Studio One 3 along with all the processing. Typically all we hear is the mic signal with no processing so that we do not experience any latency.
