I'm a record producer/engineer/mixer, Tape Op Magazine founder and editor, Jackpot! Recording Studio owner, and archivist for Elliott Smith. I currently do a lot of mixing projects as well as production, tracking, etc.
Larry Crane is the editor and founder of Tape Op Magazine, owner of Portland's Jackpot!
