Jimmy Goodman – Sound Engineer

Jim Goodman Recording EngineerJimmy Goodman has over 20 years experience as a recording studio engineer. Before starting into podcast and audiobooks, he spent years recording bands, singers, songwriters and all types of live acts.

“In the beginning I just wanted to write my own tunes, so my recording journey started in 1987 with a Vibraphone, TR-505 drum machine, 2 shure sm 57 microphones and a cassette 4 track recorder. Recording with a computer began for me working with an underground house producer, Louie Balo, in the early 90’s. In 1998 I co-founded the East Village studio TransporterRaum NYC with Gordon Raphael, which began my run as full time studio engineer/producer. TransporterRaum hosted the recording of some really great acts, including The Strokes, who did their Is This It album there, as well as Blonde Redhead, a great number of East Village NY bands, and a few international acts as well. From the closing of that studio I went on to my own place near Woodstock NY, named Leopard Studio. During my time there I continued my learning working with some really great musicians, engineers and producers, including Stephen George (who worked with Britney, Christina A., Whitney Houston, and The Backstreet Boys) and Kol Marshall, (who produced King Diamond and Ministry), and Kevin McMahon (who worked with Titus Andronicus, The Walkmen and The Swans). Some great musicians came through my studio upstate, including some very well known musicians – Garth Hudson (The Band and Dylan), Tony Levin (John Lennon, Peter Gabriel, King Crimson), Don Miller (George Benson, Dizzy Gillespie, Ricky Englesias, Justin Timberlake), Jane Scarpantoni (10,000 Maniacs, everyone who needs a rock cellist), and Jerry Marrota (Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oats, Orleans).”
