Soundproofing is important because in order to get a polished recording, you need to get clean takes of your instrument and vocal performances, and remove any chance of unwanted noise making its way into the recording of these performances.

Absolutely. We didn’t have a blueprint on how to build any of our tech, so there was a lot of trial and error. We were an incredibly lean team for the first three years as we experimented, tested, and iterated our tech to a point that we could prove that our algorithms worked!

Content-makers often inquire about my services or how they can create a podcast themselves.
