Alan Parsons on his new Sample Project

Perhaps you're a fan of Alan Parsons' own impeccably crafted studio rock. Perhaps you consider him one of the gods of recording due to his work on Pink Floyd's seminal album The Dark Side of the Moon. In either case (or both), the fact remains that he's one of the most approachable figures in the history of rock 'n' roll, always willing to share his formidable knowledge with musicians, producers, and recordists of all levels of interest and ability. His Keyfax-produced educational video series, The Art and Science of Sound Recording, is the most comprehensive of its kind ever created.
 
Now, he has embarked on a new project with Dave Kerzner of Sonic Reality: To create authentic sample libraries of not just the instruments he used throughout his career, but of the particular way he made them sound on classic recordings. Parsons and Kerzner sat down with Keyboard's Robbie Gennet to describe this new aural adventure.
