Podcast #4: Being a DIYer, Studio Owner, and Engineer with Marc Alan Goodman of Strange Weather Brooklyn June 22, 2012 16:22 3 Comments

One thing I often wondered when I first got into DIY was whether any "real" producers and engineers built their own gear. So I was thrilled to visit Marc Alan Goodman at his studio Strange Weather in Brooklyn to see his DIY gear and talk to him about how DIY fits into his career as a successful studio owner and engineer. We recorded some video of Marc's DIY gear which you can see below.

After my camera ran out of batteries, we sat down and chatted about lots of DIY stuff.
