Episode 2.12 Alan Douches (Mastering Engineer)

This week I talk to mastering engineer Alan Douches. One of the most credited engineers in the history of music. Alan has probably mastered most of your favorite records, but if you are unsure just look on the back of your favorite records from Brand New, Sufjan Stevens, LCD Soundsystem, Converge, Every Time I die, Dillinger Escape Plan, etc. etc. Show Notes: http://offtherecord.fm/tagged/episodes Subscribe on iTunes: http://bit.ly/OTRfmiTunes Off The Record on Twitter: http://twitter.com/offtherecordfm Jesse Cannon on Twitter: http://twitter.com/jessecannon
