The R.A.P. Soundstage - September 2016

First up on the Soundstage is this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner! Ryan Spooner at Tyler Hodkinson at Larche Communications in Owen Sound do a nice job on this spot for “All Drains Plus”. Cut 2 is the promo Dave Foxx talks about in his column. More creative commercial work is on tracks 3 – 8. Tracks 5 and 6 each contain a few spots from two campaigns. There are three 30s on track 5 and two 30s on track 6. We get a couple of promos on tracks 9 and 10, some hot summer splitters from Gary McClenaghan on track 11, a fun parody on track 12, and we wrap it up with something a little different. It's not always about the lasers and beat-matching. Sometimes a production pro has to 'rescue' (edit) audio to make it airable. When a guest canceled his appearance on the syndicated 'Mom Talk Radio Show' at the very last second, the host improvised a tease which, needless to say, had to be edited for airplay. For DC-based engineer Al Peterson, it was gold.

Support the R.A.P. Soundstage by sending some audio you’ve recently produced at your studios. Please include your e-mail address for anyone interested in finding out details about the work. Promos, commercials, sweepers/IDs, bits, spoof spots, song parodies, and most any other good piece of production are welcome. If you send sweeper/ID montages, make them around sixty to ninety seconds long max. All other items should be sent on separate files. Please normalize your mp3 files and trim the silence from the front and back. Email to, and thank you for supporting the R.A.P. Soundstage, formerly known as The R.A.P. CD and The R.A.P Cassette from way back in the day – none of which exist or have existed without you. :)
