My guest today is Jon Fintel a producer in Columbus, Ohio where he worked at a variety of studios in the 90s before finally opening his own studio, Relay Recording, in 2002.

His mission for the past 17 years at Relay Recording has been to create an environment where artists can experience the joy of musical discovery, and Relay has developed a reputation for stellar sound quality and a top-shelf artist experience.

Way Yes, The Worn Flints, and Mark Lomax are just a few of the artists that have worked with Jon at Relay, where combines a dedication to sonic and musical details with a relaxed attitude that makes artists comfortable and lets them enjoy the process.

I am super impressed with Jon’s awesome sounding discography and have included a Youtube playlist and Spotify player of his work in the blog post which you can find in the show notes.

My guest today is Steven Durr, a studio designer and acoustical architect with an amazing list of over 2000 clients including Garth Brooks, Neil Young, Dan Auerbach, Mark Ronson, Arcade Fire, Fame Studios, RCA Studio B, Zac Brown, Jim Eno of Spoon, and Eric Johnson to name just a few.

He has also designed music venues, film studios, health care facilities, and sports venues for clients like Disney, Willie Nelson, NASCAR Motor Speedways, Library of Congress, Hilton Hotels, DreamWorks Studios, Nissan Manufacturing, Vanderbilt University, Austin City Limits, and the Cleveland Browns.

I am psyched to be talking with Steve today about what it means to design the perfect recording studio, and how you can improve your own studio space and monitoring whether a home studio or pro studio.
