AP.net Podcast: Life of a Booking Agent (Episode...

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/13/14)
After wanting to throw my computer against a wall when Logic Pro X stopped doing what I needed it to last week, I was finally able to get it working and put together our latest episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast. This week's episode has booking agent Dave Shapiro from The Agency Group joining Zack and I. The conversation centers around what role a booking agent plays in a band's career and a lot of what goes on behind the scenes with bands and tours. Plus, I get to ask "who first came up with the idea for that bury the hatchet tour?" ... and then make snarky marketing department jokes. Good times all around and a really informative episode. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded in the replies.

Yeah, after looking into it more -- turns out it's due to a bug in the software. I found a workaround. Then had to learn about Noise Gates and Expanders to try and clean up the audio. Haha. It was a weird weekend.

haha, yeah ive run across quite a few bugs with logic pro x and it just eats so much CPU, but even after all of that i still love it (mostly because of that super low price tag). sounds like you spent your weekend learning some of the stuff i get to study in school.....although i still dont know exactly how an expander works, my professors would kill me if they saw this post

Hahaha, I watched so many of this kid's videos ... a lot of it went over my head, but some of it was really helpful (like this one) to my very limited knowledge of audio editing. Haha.
