Howard Massey is a leading audio industry consultant, technical writer, and author of Behind the Glass and Behind the Glass Volume II, two collections of in-depth interviews with top record producers and audio engineers widely used in recording schools the world over. He also co-authored legendary Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick’s acclaimed 2006 memoir, Here, There, and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles.

Join us as we gather together some of the top names from the recently released Behind The Glass Volume II for a lively discussion about the state of the industry today and a look ahead at the way that production techniques are likely to evolve in the years to come. Topics will include new media and online distribution; the application of legacy (analog) technology in an increasingly digital world; and the critical role of the producer/engineer team in driving both the creative and technical aspects of the record-making process.
