Gary Lux (Janet Jackson, Manhattan Transfer, Ben Harper, Usher, Sting, and many many more) is one of Hollywood’s premier music mixers, with literally thousands of projects to his credit. Gary has also been recording the music for the Golden Globe Awards broadcast for 27 years. All the music heard during the Golden Globe’s broadcast is prerecorded, there is no live orchestra at the show. And this year Gary recorded using the Vanguard V4 FET Large Diaphragm Condenser. Gary will talk about his experiences recording the Golden Globe’s music, plus play back some of his recordings from the session and maybe even A/B the Vanguard against some other classic mics.

He’ll join Gary to discuss the recording process for the Golden Globe’s music, plus the fact that he loved the Vanguard V4 so much, he immediately purchased one for himself after the session.
