This Week in Radio Tech Ep. 155 – Michael Dorrough 2-7-13

Look into the racked equipment at many radio and TV stations, and recording studios, and you'll find something with the name “Dorrough” on it. Famous in broadcast audio circles for bringing multi-band audio processing to broadcasting, Mike Dorrough exhibits the spirit of invention and innovation. In this episode, we talk with Mike about audio processing and meaningful audio level measurement with his Dorrough Loudness Meter.

Chris Tobin, Chris Tarr, and I talk with Michael Dorrough in a fascinating hour, learning psychoacoustic truths that are just as valid today as when they were discovered.
