If your looking for a podcast about the finer details of parallel compression or M/S eq or nerd tricks, this isn’t for you. If you want a peek behind the production curtain, and advice on how to conduct yourself as a professional within the production scene, or seeking motivation in general, this is the podcast for you.
I can’t describe in enough words how great this podcast helps the communities of musicians and future recording engineers. Forever grateful Eyal
I checked out this podcast expecting some nerdy deep dives into audio production, and there is plenty of that. But what I didn’t expect and am currently floored by is the depth of these conversations - Eyal Levi is a brilliant interviewer with a deep knowledge of the industry as well as the completely artistic side of the business, and he brings out the absolute best from the star-studded lineup of guests. Listen now - there is no bad episode.
Amazing insight into the music industry, and what it takes to be a producer in the modern music scene.
I produce record etc. this is got to be one of the most surprisingly recording work Psyche appreciable conversations I’ve heard in a while with John Congleton as well as with Eyal. Well done.
I have learned more from this podcast than I have from some classes, what else can I say, the knowledge is second to none, I recomend it to everybody I can.
Rarely have I encountered a podcast that is so informative but also entertaining. The URM podcast does a fantastic job of going beyond the monotony of questions that are asked of every producer in any given video or magazine interview. Anyone can listen to a producer or mix engineer's discography, but to be able to get a deeper view into their psyche is invaluable for those of us who are looking to learn the craft of producing and engineering. Any given episode of the URM podcast can provide insight into how some of the greatest minds in today's music business operate, whether that comes in the form of more technical information or via their mindset. A definite must for anyone looking to up their game in the audio world.
I’ve been a URM member for a year now and have also been listening to the podcast for just as long. While URM NTM sessions give you all the insight as to how these people create their great mixes the podcast fills in the gap of showing you more how they are in every day life. They share their backgrounds, experiences, and provide professional advice. It really makes you feel more connected to who your favorite mixers are and can often be inspiring to hear how they succeeded.
I don’t know where else you’re going to get to hear so many pros talk about how it’s done and how to succeed, let alone for free. This podcast is how I integrate audio into my life when I’m doing anything else. It’s a great way to stay fired up by constantly learning new things to try out and how to be successful by learning from others who did it first.
The people on this podcast are the real deal, and hearing them in such a casual setting talking freely about their experiences is CRITICAL for understanding the mentality you need to succeed in this industry. Know the people you could potentially work with and how they think and interact, and you will hit the ground running if you decide to make a career in music. Otherwise, there’s lot of great insight for fans of music and the process of making it!
This podcast gives you a wealth of knowledge from top producers. I have learned something new from every episode I’ve listened to. If you are into audio this is the podcast for you. I was never really into podcasts then I listened to this and now I listen to a episode every time I have to drive somewhere.
Nothing could beat the amount of insightful, actionable advice packed into this podcast by real world professionals. The information is honest, proven to be successful, and the online FB community is chock-full of 100% positive engagement and support. If you aren’t subscribed to one of the services or a listener of the podcast at minimum you’re missing out!! The amount of people who’ve gotten massive amounts of inspiration and knowledge out of it are truly staggering!
This podcast is like no other. Every episode is just a giant well of useful information for producers and mixers of any and all forms of rock and metal music. Eyal is such a cool guy, and does an amazing job at being down to earth and relatable and makes every guest seem very calm and able to talk about whatever they want in a relaxed, conversational way. I feel like I could listen to each episode multiple times and find new things to learn with each listen. 100% recommend! While you’re at it, check out URM/Nail the mix, too.
The culture and life of the hard rock/metal musician comes alive during Eyal’s podcast. Hearing from some of my favorite musicians and the producers behind them has helped me become even more immersed in my hobby. URM has been popping up for me in internet searches for the last couple years and I finally decided to take the plunge when the Will Putney: How It’s Done course came out. It came with 3 months of URM Enhanced and now I’m hooked. My understanding of musical production from tracking to proper communication has soared thanks to URM. This podcast is a great supplement to URM and I hope it sticks around for a long time!
The technical side of URM is incredible and there’s as much info as you are willing to absorb. The podcast is where it shines for me though. You get a better understanding for a specific producer/engineer’s mindset and priorities rather than what knobs to turn and what gear to buy. This to me is kinda like Aang and the avatar state where he can channel the wisdom of those more wise, and use that information to forge his own path. It’s an inside look into the minds of those successfully doing what you want to be doing. That’s hard to put a price tag on if you can internalize/apply what you learn from listening in.
This isn’t just your normal audio podcast no it’s soooooo much better. You get to see behind the glass on the mentality of these people who make probably some of your favorite records and that’s well with the price of FREEEE!!!! I’d give it 10 out of 5 stars if I could
Thank you Eyal, it was lovely to be on the podcast... hope to meet in person some day... Marc Urselli
URM is the best podcast, community, and knowledge source out there for aspiring musicians and audio production people to truly learn from the best in the business. The podcast often takes a philosophical turn at times, consistently covering so much more material than “what settings do you use on [Insert piece of equipment]? These guys are the best, period.
Nothing could beat the amount of insightful, actionable advice packed into this podcast by real world professionals. The information is honest and proven to be successful. One of the best communities in the online music scene as well. If you aren’t subscribed to one of the services or a listener of the podcast at minimum you’re missing out!!
You're missing out if you're an audio engineer and not listening to the wealth of information this podcast provides!
I have been listening to this podcast for the last three and half years, and a member of URM for the last two and half years. It has changed my life and given me the chance to do something I have always wanted to do. I literally thought my chances had passed until I found this podcast. Now I have multiple sessions under my belt and have been able to work with some of the local artists I have always looked up too. It’s a great feeling of validation when they seek you out for your help and opinion. I can never thanks Eyal and the team at URM enough.
WOW!!! This is the show I’ve been looking for for years. Eyal is a prime example of how being a good, real person who is passionate about what they’re doing leads to success. The show is packed with knowledge and insight from guests and it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thanks, Eyal for keeping it real and having a great podcast. It’s been a huge motivation and door breaker for me. Cheers
I've learned a ton of things audio related from this podcast but what is really great is the variety of guests Eyal has. Intelligent people talking about intelligent things intelligently.
