Kia ora Mosen at Largers. Our amazing community has put together another informative, thought-provoking listen for you, and it’ll be in your podcast app this weekend. Here’s a sneak peak of what you can expect.
We’ll follow up on the interview with Paul Edwards in episode 183 by discussing the outcome of the Braille capitalisation resolution at the ACB convention.
It’s my great pleasure this week to bring you an extended interview with Slau Halatyn. Slau has so many talents. He’s a much-respected audio producer, running his own recording studio in New York City. He’s a singer, songwriter, and musician. He’s an advocate, having played a key role in ensuring that Pro Tools became accessible in what we now call MacOS. He is widely considered the authority on Pro Tools with VoiceOver, the screen reader built into every mac. Pro Tools in the industry standard in the music business, and now Slau has produced a comprehensive set of audio tutorials teaching Pro tools from a blindness perspective. Best of all, it’s free. You can download the tutorial here.
I’ll talk with Slau about his life and work, his advocacy for Pro Tools accessibility, his days as a podcast pioneer, his perspective as someone of Ukrainian descent who has friends and family in Ukraine, and so much more. We even tackle the biggest question of all, does vinyl really sound better than digital? I mean, who better to ask than a highly respected audio engineer?
There’s plenty more on the show as well. If you want to raise something new, you’re very welcome. Please don’t be shy, I’d love to hear from you. What makes Mosen At Large special is the global community we’ve built and all the perspectives we share with each other.
