My dream is to be an NFL offensive coordinator. For now, I do this. I mostly take larger/full-length/album projects, particularly for clients interested in entirely analog processes.
Long-time local and touring soundman Aaron McCallister partnered with Earth Analog in Spring of 2010. Aaron plays bass for the Tractor Kings and Chemicals, and does sound for my bands Hum and Centaur. His live sound experience and many years of recording out of his home contribute to him being an accomplished engineer, and he shares my passion for all things analog. Aaron is owner/operator of McCallister Audio and can fix a tube amp in his sleep.
Jeff lives in Peoria and does tons of free-lance work at Earth. He was a fixture at a number of notable LA area studios for many years before returning home to the midwest. The breadth of his legit studio experience makes him comfortable working in all genres, with all kinds of clients, and with either analog or digital gear. Also he’s nice.
Along with everyone else in town, Earth Analog is mourning of the departure of the legendary Pogo Studio, but we are delighted to have Pogo house engineer James Treichler on board here. Along with being a great engineer, James is an accomplished drummer and will tune the living piss out of your drums.
Colin also worked at Pogo and he’s young, so if you need to work like a 17 hr day he’s your guy. Totally knows what he’s doing. A meticulous worker who never tires of experimentation.
