Bruce Swedien

Bruce Swedien was working with Quincy Jones when Michael Jackson asked the two if they would work on his upcoming album, a thing called “Thriller.”  It became the biggest selling album on the planet and in same ways has overshadowed Bruce’s amazing career before and after “Thriller.”  As a recording engineer, he set the standard for many methods in audio engineering that continue to this day.  He is known in audio engineering circles for pioneering the Acusonic Recording Process, which involves pairing up microphones together on vocals and instruments, a technique enabled by synchronizing several multi-track recorders with SMPTE timecode.  This roomy feel has been the inspiration for many engineers over the years who point to Bruce as their personal and professional mentor.
