SONIC TALK 117 - LIVE.
As the arctic chill swaddles the UK in frost, we're holed up in Sonic State Towers broadcasting over the wires. Joining me this week is Mark Tinley sound artist, musician and now author, Dave Spiers - the man from GForce Software - makers of fine instruments and an all too rare treat in the form of Dave Robinson, editor of the paper and online Pro Sound News Europe pro audio B2B publication, lastly Rich Hilton joins us from Connecticut where he takes care of the studio business for Nile Rogers and plays out with disco legends Chic. After some insights into the mating habits of the Preying Mantis from Mark, we then continue our guffawing over the amusing and probably unintentional use of Microsoft's Songsmith vocal accompaniment software wiith some crackers from Billy Idol, The Police and Eminem, then it's the wonderful Diego Stocco's Music From Sand and all that sound design should be, pressing on we tackle Isao Tomita and finally AutoTune seems to be getting a lot of attention at present, and we discuss what this means for the future of singers. Remember... Join Us Live!
