Most of you guys might remember Gavan Bruderer from some older posts we did over the years about his experiences with Fame FX and radio imaging in general. He is a talented bloke and currently works for Clear Channel imaging Z100 Portland, as well as he is taking care of the commercial workload directly in Salt Lake City, where he is based + he does some startup packages for new stations that Clear Channel launches.

We often talk about Pro Tools on this blog too, but a lot of guys use Adobe Audition out there and Gavan decided to give those people a chance for asking questions and sharing ideas about the DAW. Therefore Gavan launched A Facebook page where all the producers using Adobe Audition can ask questions, share feedback and connect with official Adobe Members to discuss Audition. Gavan told us that there are a ton of Pro Tools groups out there, but he never found any about Adobe Audition that specifically targets radio producers.

So if any of you guys out there are logged into Facebook and you are interested in Adobe Audition give Gavan a thumbs up RIGHT HERE!

After about 20 years in radio full-time, I’ve been working as a director of video productions for a manufacturing company in Kansas City for the last few years. I have clients I do imaging for as a freelancer on a consistent basis as well as working with my “home station,” KZPT-FM 997 the Point in Kansas City, where I’m also on-air as a weekend/fill-in jock.
I’d also like to mention how much I love this “Iron Imager” contest. I’d like to thank Benztown for making it happen. I’d like to thank Dan Kelly and the other champs for being involved and bringing a large amount of credibility to this event. The trip to LA and the chance to share the stage with Dan, catch some hang time with the Benztown Team is a prize in itself! If this brings me new opportunities, that’s just icing on the cake. This experience has easily been one of the most exciting things that has happened to me in my radio career.
I love you, radio.
Love, Brady

PS: I’m on twitter, @bradygoodman, and I’m always open to new opportunities

Our reader Kyle wrote us an email with the following question:

“Hello Benztown Boys and Girls,
Was wondering if you could ask on your blog for the Adobe Audition Users (Version 1.5 to 3.0), what the best compression and EQ settings are in Adobe’s own effects panel.
Thanks,
Kyle”

Now it’s up you, Adobe Audition experts on this blog. Share your wisdom with us help us to answer Kyle’s question and help him to rock his productions!

Last week we introduced our brand new category “The Nic Kelly Files” featuring one of the new generation of Imaging guys.  Nic Kelly from Australia!

After showing us how to create stunning beatmixing techniques in Adobe Audition, he’s got something special for you, no matter if you’re using Adobe Audition, Pro Tools, Logic or any other DAW.

Today he shows us his self created Cosmonaut Voice:

Cosmonaut Voice is a stunning plugin which includes telephone voice, CB radio distortion, noise, squelch and even interplanetary effects…

Check out an example by David Konsky himself: just click here

Of course such a great plugin has it’s price which may be to exorbitant for a young producer, which just has started.

So, Nic Kelly created his OWN Cosmonaut Voice:

This example is created without Cosmonaut Voice! You don’t believe it? Then check out Nic’s plugin chain screenshots and take off to outer space. (more…)

Nic Kelly  from Oz. Right, there was this 15 year old self marketing imaging genius. In my opinion, Nic is one of the guys, who will rock the imaging scene in the future. I know no guy having his age, who has the same skill set and industry connections. There are great imaging guys, who give feedback to Nic about his work like David Konsky and many others. Nic is a master of self marketing, but also a great imaging talent. Becuase we really believe in his talent, Mike Santos, Oli and I decided to offer Nic the chance to get an Imaging superstar even faster and improve on a weekly basis by getting detailled feedback on productions, challenges, reviews and and and. I won’t call it an education program, because it is far more than that. Why? See the new category on the left – yes, Nic will have his own category on our blog to let you guys know what he did in the last weeks, what he created and achieved. His first post is about beatmixing in Adobe!

Enter Nic and Adobe Audition! (more…)

After getting so much different beatmatched stuff and beatmixes last week, we thought, you’d have enough of this… apparently not. So I feel free to start with a benztown piece from last week and after that  introduce you to the stuff we got sent from Mike, Tom and Pavel.

Enjoy the guys amazing work, get inspired and feel free to comment and share your beatmixes with us (blog@benztown.com). (more…)

A few weeks ago, I asked Rachel McGrath to write a post on the blog, because I really admire her work as a Producer and Voice Talent. I work with her on our CHR library since a few months and she really rocks! To be honest, she is one of the best female Voice Talents I ever worked with delivering in great quality and fun to work with. I recommend to check out her stuff. Beside that she is the Voice and Imaging director for CC Atlanta.

Random Person: “What’s it like to work in such a male dominated world?”
Me: “I work with men???? With big deep voices? I never noticed!”

Read the entire interview and check out Rachel’s favourite plugIns as screenshots. (more…)

As a result to Merts request on the Cutting Through Experience I reached out to my Adobe based Canadian friend Andy from Astral Radio to help out. I expected a short answer – see what he has been up to! He shares his tricks, shows a ton of screenshots, has his latest demos and even delieverd a second part where he digs into Rock Imaging. Perfect stuff for a relaxed Thanksgiving weekend – enter Andy McBeth.
