Legendary engineer Al Schmitt took the stage at Shure Inc.’s global headquarters in Niles, Illinois, for what proved to be an unforgettable night of learning, memories, and great music at GRAMMY SoundTables: Behind the Glass with Al Schmitt.  Taking questions from Mark Brunner, Senior Director of Global Brand Management at Shure, Schmitt provided the enthusiastic audience with valuable insights from his storied career, including tips for ensuring an artist’s best performance during a recording session and the importance of adapting to the ever-evolving roles of producer and engineer in today’s studio environment. Some of the most moving moments of the evening were Schmitt’s incredible stories illustrated with audio clips from his discography which struck the audience to silence and ensured they left with smiles on their faces.
