As a Solo Producer

These are all ads I produced working as a solo producer at Evolution 107.9, BCIT’s Burnaby campus station. These were all produced in a span of 5 days, so I produced 5 ads per day. This was done in my practicum at the station in April/May of 2015. It was my first ever production schedule at a station, so it was nerve-racking! Sitting in the studio, with a 16 track mixer board, a set of Genelecs staring at you in the face, a Shure SM7B across from you, it’s intimidating! I started spending a lot of time in studio. In fact, I spent way more than my scheduled 3 hour shift. Somedays I’d produce ads until 8pm. Yes, there was still voiceover talent around at 8pm. I’ve grown a lot since these ads, so they sound amateurish to me. I’ve gained a lot of production knowledge, skills, and techniques since this time, so that’s why I’ve divided my ads into 2 categories at Evolution 107.9; as a solo producer (this), and as the production director. You may or may not notice a stark difference in sound quality between the two.
