Many independents don't get the opportunity to work alongside audio engineers on a regular basis — and the current work-from-home situation compounds that problem.
In this session Rob Byers and Michael Raphael, of the creative audio storytelling and post-production team, Final Final v2, will provide pointers that every audio storyteller can use to improve their work, from efficiency in mixing to production workflow and recording.
This is a Q&A session — the majority of the time will be reserved for your technical questions, so come ready to ask! If you'd like to submit questions in advance, email Rob: [email protected].
Rob trained audio producers across the country with NPR Training and writes educational guides for producers of all experience levels, including The Ear Training Guide for Audio Producers, The Audio Producer’s Guide to Loudness, and The Producer’s Handbook to Mixing Audio Stories.
Rob is the Director of Broadcast and Media Production at American Public Media and his work there contributed to a Peabody and a Pulitzer. He is one-third of the audio storytelling post-production and consultation group Final Final v2, which has one of the best names in the business.

His work can be heard on Caliphate and Voyages: Listen to the World from the New York Times, Performance Today, Fiasco, and This is Love, among others. He is an expert field recordist whose company, Rabbit Ears Audio, provides authentic sounds to the film and video game industries. If you need the sound of an Mi-24 Hind helicopter from the Soviet Union or an Olivetti Lettera 22 Royal Standard Model 10 typewriter, he can help you.
