Steve Albini was the man behind the machine on so many of my favorite records. The first one I really noticed as the “Albini” sound was Don Caballero’s album Don Cab 2. The drums on that album sound incredible.
As a musician, it would be a dream to record an album with him.
As an engineer, I’ve learned a ton from reading his posts on forums, interviews in videos, etc.
This keynote has nothing to do with either, but has everything to do with the current state of the music industry, and how he feels about it.
I agree with much of what he is saying, and I am excited to be in the thick of it.
