Earthworks Audio CEO Gareth Krausser, Music Industry Job Changes, And The Ultimate Song According To Science
My guest on the podcast this week is Gareth Krausser, who’s the CEO of Earthworks Audio, one of the premier microphone manufacturers that keeps a relatively low profile.
Earthworks was founded by audio pioneer David Blackmer, who also founded dbx, and it was originally set up as a speaker manufacturer. David found the test gear needed in loudspeaker design was lacking so he built a measurement microphone as his first project. It was so well regarded for its sound quality that before long, the focus of the company shifted entirely to microphones.
During the interview we spoke about Gareth’s long association behind the scenes with Earthworks, what makes Earthworks mics different, specialty microphones, and much more.
On the intro I’ll take a look at how jobs have changed in the music business, and the ultimate song according to science.
