Mastering engineer Kim Rosen joins me on the show this month. Kim is the owner and operator of Knack Mastering in New Jersey, and I've had the pleasure of working with her on a number of projects. She first came to my attention through the band I play in, Birds of Chicago, when we were mastering an acoustic record that I recorded. Kim had also recently done stellar work on a number of Joe Henry and Ryan Freeland productions that I had been immersed in. I thought it would be interesting to hear a bit about mastering, both conceptually, and technically, as well as how someone's career path led to this somewhat misunderstood, but incredibly important role in the recording process. We also talked about developing equipment under the name Whitestone Audio with her husband. Enjoy my conversation with Kim Rosen and please subscribe to the podcast!

The call to find the poem inside: Kim Rosen didn’t just write Saved by a Poem, she actually was saved by a poem! When she got a phone call that her life savings had disappeared in the hands of Bernie Madoff, the words of Naomi Shihab Nye’s “Kindness” floated past her: “Before you can know what kindness really is you must lose things …” Kim will bless us with a touch of her signature “deep dive” method that bypasses conscious mind and welcomes you into the heart of poetry.
