“Don’t Go By What it Looks Like, Go By What it Sounds Like”: Steve Marcantonio
Getting his start at the legendary Record Plant in 1987, Steve Marcantonio has made a great life as an engineer. Having worked with some of the most influential engineers, producers and musicians, Steve has a long and storied history that makes him the perfect person to teach us his engineering process. In this series, Steve begins by thoroughly walking us through his miking choices and positions in the tracking room before listening to each microphone in the control room. He then goes on to record the artist he’s working with today, Mike Miz, which gives us a glimpse of the artist-producer-engineer collaboration in real-time. They then move on to the overdubbing process, and finally, they cut vocals. This video demonstrates the process of making great gear sound its best.
