With all the engineering advice out there, how do you sort through it all? Today, I’d like to talk about Twitter, and how it’s a valuable resource when searching for advice from the best. It just takes a few clicks to follow some of the greatest engineers around today. Then you can sit back, relax, and watch any advice they supply flow straight to your Twitter feed. Here are a few accounts that I recommend:
Steven Slate – Slate Audio’s CEO and CoFounder, Steven Slate has an official twitter account. Follow him for free weekly plugin giveaways and some great mix tips.
Manny Marroquin – Manny Marroquin has a mile long resume, and is definitely worth a follow.
Michael Brauer – Michael Brauer is an engineer based in New York, and he’s a 7x Grammy winner. So, obviously, you should follow him.
Tony Maserati – Tony Maserati doesn’t post as often as some of the guys on this list, but he posts great content, like songs, interviews, and articles.
Matt Hyde – Matt Hyde has definitely built a name for himself in recent decades. He’s worked with bands including Slipknot, Funeral For a Friend, and Machine Head.
