Audio Engineering with Buford Jones

Burford Jones - Sound Productions - WAVES Soundgrid

Several weeks ago, I attended an audio seminar at the home of Sound Productions here in Dallas. Wow! What special seminar, led by the very talented FOH engineer Buford Jones. Buford stellar carrier of 40 + plus years as a veteran live sound mixer, sound engineer and guitarist with the likes of Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Linda Ronstadt, Pink Floyd, ZZTop, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, New Bohemians, Jackson Browne, Don Henley, Clint Black, Faith Hill.  Buford shared his technical skills via situational stories that demonstrated his ability to communicate to the artist. I absorbed every word. It as a delightful session.    The session began with an overview of the Soundgrid System from WAVES including the e-Motion LV1 live mixer.  In many ways the Soundgrid system was my first introduction into digital mixing combined with plug-ins.

Thanks to Sound Productions, WAVES and to Buford Jones.  I really appreciate you.  What to learn more? Check out the links below.
