Analytic Listening: A Case Study of Radio Production
This paper provides an insight into Radio production. Developing strong analytic listening skills is a critical part of the training necessary to be a successful radio producer. Humans have a very strong preference for visual sensing over all other modes. To learn analytic listening, producers must disengage visual sensing. Experienced producers have spent many hours experimenting in the studio, manually changing controls and carefully listening to the sound and how it changes, playing around with the technology and learning what will work and what does not.
