JW Show 197: Rob Fraboni and RealFeel
Rob Fraboni joins Claire and I this week to talk about his legendary career as a record producer, engineer, record label executive and tamborinist (is that how you say/spell that?) Right now he’s using his extensive knowledge and experience with sound to develop a product called RealFeel – it’s a mastering process that cures the digital sound. He’s going to tell us all about it. We will also tell you who won last month’s Top Ten and comment below on this post with your challenge ideas.
Lots to get through on today’s show, especially since the live broadcast didn’t work out this week. Luckily, the internet man is on his way over right now to replace our failing modem that we fried.
Also, this cut of the interview with Rob Fraboni here is shortened and is missing a few excellent anecdotes and some great knowledge. If you enjoy it, I recommend listening to and downloading the full interview by clicking here – an extra 45 minutes.
Correction: Pierre Massé has just informed me that he is French AND Canadian, not a French-Canadian. I think he forgave me for both of the mistakes… 😉
