Thanks!

I feel that Dave Weiss truly captured the essence of my mindset and dynamic in his article!

Great ink, Steve. And he shows you to be an innovative, imaginative practicer of the art. The author does not touch on your kindness and generosity. That would take a whole new article. Hat's off to you.

Thanks, Sandy!

My close friends and associates know exactly where I'm coming from with regards to the kindness and generosity.

Some folks have no clue until they (really) get to know me.

Yep, and I did that stunt to impress my girl friend (at the time) who really loved the Dolls.

I had my Sony MX20 eight-channel mixer, a Revox A700 2-track 1/4" tape recorder, eight mics, a Crown D60 power amp and a pair of Koss headphones in the truck of my Oldsmobile Delta 88...

The rest is history!

That article truly recreates the experience of walking into the world of Aura Sonic. My first trip to the field shop was last year and it was intoxicating. After seeing the trucks, the racks of gear and seeing Steve in his element for the first time, I was blown away. I came home that night and couldn't shut up about it.

"that...place...was amazing!"
"I've never seen that much gear in my life"

Anyway, kudos to Dave Weiss for capturing the scene and the man in such a perfect way.

Thanks, Jon!

You have been with us for about a year now, and you still feel this way.
Now, that's pretty freakin' cool!

A great intro to "Remoteness" I'd say! The writer really seemed to get what AS is about, or you explained it to him really well, or both!

Thanks, philp!

IMO, it was a lot of both. Dave got the serious tour of the field shop and we spent an insane amount of time in Elroy talking about all this Aura-Sonic. There's enough information to do a part II.

Believe it or not, Dave interviewed me last winter.
The article was to be published in March of this year to commemorate our 36 year anniversary.
Since Dave was very busy, it needed to be pushed to July.

In any event, he did a fabulous job, especially since he just wrote the article last week.
He's a great note taker and knows exactly what questions to ask.

More power to Dave Weiss and Sonic Scoop!
He's the real deal!

Well, there are great live recording engineers out there and I'm just one of them.

I glad to still have the "ear" to keep the dream alive.

You can check it out here...

Icons: Steve Remote – Pioneering Mobile Production with Aura-Sonic

Man, he did a great job with the piece If I do say so myself.

I hope you get a chance to check it out.
steve youve always struck me as a humble man. it is clear from this article that you are also a genius. the price of your excellence is your total commitment to your work. i consider myself fortunate to work with you from time to time.

i have heard a more detailed version of this story before. i also remember you saying you started taking this hobby seriously after working on that history making live fm radio and cable tv simulcast broadcast with frank zappa back on oct 31 1981.

you already know how i feel, but i'm going to say it here too. i am in awe of all you have done over the years and to still have so much energy i am envious but very happy for what you have accomplished despite going against all the odds. i still get chills thinking about the few times we have worked together.

would love to see you again. maybe next time I head to nyc or if you’d like to visit us there is always room at the inn for you my friend.

until you hang with steve and get a chance to hear the raw tracks he records as he explains his thought process on how it was tracked and how he takes those great sounding tracks to the next level it seems like an enigma to me because it doesnt have alot to do with the gear he uses. it is more about how he hears it.

I have learned a lot from this awesome guy.

My biggest take away from the article was that I'd like to play with Elroy for about a month, just for fun.

I wonder what my wife would say if Elroy was parked in front of my house and I "disappeared" for a month. Hmmmmmm..........

Tom,

I believe your wife will love it because you could "disappear" into your own "world" and it's a satellite structure just about 70 feet from the door of your home.
