Brendan "Bob" Leahy
Spent a few years providing support to the TV and Film industry for Avid Media Composer, DS, and Interplay products. Moved from support to engineering and now I do QA work for Media Composer. Recently started taking some software development courses back at UML.
I graduated roughly a year ago and I’m taking up as much space in the audio world as I can. I have a full-time position in corporate AV and several part-time jobs in freelancing, mostly in live sound. Aside from that, I fill in as a prompt-tuner for Nuance Communications, editing their audible software used in GPS systems.
Before graduation from UMass Lowell, I was offered a position at the University and decided to stay on as staff after graduation. I work in media production primarily for the String Project, but happily take any mixing and production projects that come across my desk from the SRT department.
Currently, I’m a freelance engineer working in the Lowell/ Boston area. I wear many hats, including: live sound for music and corporate events, studio recording/mixing, audio book recording/mixing, and stagehand work for touring national folk festivals.
My most regular work comes from being the regular engineer for multiple vendors specializing in reinforcement for GB bands.
My most bizarre work comes from Nuance, where I use custom-built software to make automated voice technology sound more human.
After UML, I spent several years in QA at Avid. I helped design The Space and worked as the engineer there for a few years. I’ve also taught Multitrack at Middlesex CC. I love our local music scene (Lowell/Boston) and have gotten to work with a ton of great bands here. My favorite thing these days is live multitracking.
My name is in the credits of Pro Tools 8 :D
Also, I’ve worked with lowercase p, Jen Kearney, The Big Sway, Los Bungalitos, Goosepimp Orchestra, Hot Day at the Zoo, Adam Ezra, Air Traffic Controller, Hivesmasher.
