Jonathan Wyner [Pt. 2]: Artificial Intelligence in the Audio World

Jonathan Wyner (Mastering Engineer / Educator / Past President of AES) joins Benny, Siobhán, and Cory for another round as they dive deeper into the world of audio engineering. Jonathan breaks down his experience with the company IZotope, going over the company's origins and its role in bringing technology closer to the audio world. We get some excellent mastering advice discussing how big trends like the "loudness war" shaped a generation of music, and why louder doesn't always mean better. We discuss some of Jonathan's motivations behind writing his book on audio mastering, as well as some tips for current and future music engineers. All this and more tune in with us and prepare to be 2020'd
