PSNEurope May 2017 digital edition now available

Women in audio, Rick Wakeman's engineer and newly opened YellowRattle Studios
By Sarah Sharples ,

Fearless females, who work throughout the industry from a studio owner, live touring engineer, console designer and studio manager, talk to PSNEurope in a special extended feature on women in the audio for the May magazine.

Behind the barn doors is the story on the newly opened YellowRattle Studios, which sits in the English countryside and is owned by former drummer and pop sensation in Japan, Paul Dackombe. He talks about building the 'green' studio from the ground up and his Neve Genesys.

Meanwhile, Rick Wakeman owns nine original Minimoogs and his man in command Erik Jordan talks about dealing with the keyboard conundrum and going on tour with the Caped Crusader.

Read the Q&A with Eric Joseph, the man behind one of the UK's first Pro Tools resellers, who speaks about his time touring with Womack & Womack, starting Mediaspec and how he hates the word reseller.

Another feature delves into acoustic design – from the materials that are commonly being used, the rise in fit-outs in home studios and the growth in the installation business.

Dreamland Margate amusement park has had a makeover with a new 15,000 capacity live music venue, with SSE Audio on board to install d&b to help the music play, which kicks off with a festival from headliners Gorillaz.
