I’ve got exciting news. My wife Pam and I are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary on May 13, 2016.
A lot of fun stuff is happening on that day.
First off, I’ll be releasing an all-knew version of my highly popular Understanding Compression course. There will be a discount and all sorts of fun stuff. More on that later. Understanding Compression 2.0 is going to be EPIC.

I’m gonna rant.

How It All Started
You might have noticed, I tend to read a lot of business books. Being an entrepreneur and an idea guy, I love feeding my brain new ideas. Or at least, I did.

In this episode, I sum up some of the BIG things I learned at the Audio Bloggers Live event. Plus, I answer questions about what mic I used for the podcast, how I go about producing songs from scratch, launching albums, and more.
