My guest today is Chad Copelin an American producer, audio engineer, musician, and songwriter from Norman, Oklahoma. He’s best known for his production work with Broncho, Sports, Wilderado, LANY, Ben Rector, Andrew Belle, Sufjan Stevens, Third Eye Blind and engineering for pop artists Christina Perri, Kelly Clarkson, Sasha Sloan and Avril Lavigne.

Chad engineered Christina Perri’s Top 40 song “A Thousand Years” which went 10x platinum. He also was nominated for a grammy for producing and engineering All Sons And Daughter’s record “Poets & Saints.” He works out of his Norman, OK based studio, Blackwatch, as well as spending time in Nashville, LA, and Sonic Ranch outside of El Paso, TX.

I play synth and have amassed quite a collection of vintage synths, have an obsession with short scale guitars, and play bass on a lot of records as well. I'm always trying to find a new creative process to breathe life into a recording. Which we will talk about

Thanks to Ryan Hewitt for making our introduction.

My guest today is Tyler Campbell CEO the founder of Alder Audio, an Ann Arbor, Michigan based company pushing the boundaries of ribbon mic design.  Alder Audio launched in February 2021 with the H44, a workhorse ribbon mic with a patented capsule and durable herringbone ribbon.  

Before founding Alder, Tyler worked in product development as a chemist and engineer.  He specializes in developing products related to materials design and has worked on a diverse array of projects, from high power lithium batteries to automotive communication cable, to adhesives you can find on the shelf of your local hardware store.  

Tyler is also a self-proclaimed gear addict and lifelong home recording enthusiast, who grew up with a front row seat to his family’s small manufacturing business in Wisconsin.  The H44 design is a direct result of his scientific background combined with his passion for audio, recording, and small business.

I have been trying out the H44 and H44S here at The Toy Box Stusio aka RSR HQ and I have to say these mics sound really fantastic! One of the big challenges for me is recording things like drums with bright cymbals and acoustic and electric guitars that can sometimes be too harsh or vocals that have too much edge. The H44 does a beautiful job of smoothing out those instruments and making them mixable and listenable.

So I’m happy to have Tyler joining us on the show today to learn more about Alder Audio and his mission to design a great ribbon microphone at a great price
