We get around to talking about some tagging basics, mostly geared towards iTunes. Kirk reminds me about Option-space bar. I had the chance to mention a few AppleScripts for exporting artwork and my “Smarts” app for managing Smart playlists.

The Next Track – Episode 27 – Paul Englishby

Kirk and I wanted to find out what writing music for soundtracks was all about and so our guest for this episode is UK composer Paul Englishby. You may not have heard of him but you certainly may have heard his music, which he writes for TV, film, and stage. His latest project was composing the music for a high-tech production of “The Tempest” being staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company. He also does the music for the British TV shows “Luther” and “The Musketeers”, both of which are favorites at my house.

The Next Track – Episode 26 – Ask Andy #1

Kirk and I asked our pal Andy Doe to come on the show for the first of an every-now-and-then feature we’re calling “Ask Andy”. We get lots of techy queries from listeners that we’re under-prepared to answer but that Andy is happy to take a crack at. Topics in this episode include stereo speaker placement, iTunes playback effects, new (and dubiously useful) audio file formats and more.

Sunny Nam on The Next Track

Kirk and I were delighted to chat with renowned mastering engineer, Sangwook “Sunny” Nam, on the latest episode of The Next Track podcast. It was fascinating. And Sunny couldn’t have been more generous with his time. If you’ve ever been curious about the process of mastering an album or just want to geek-out a little, I hope you’ll give this episode a listen.
