Bruce Jackson, RIP
« on: February 01, 2011, 01:15:22 PM »

I heard today that Bruce Jackson died in a plane crash over the weekend. He was a real industry pioneer, and will be missed by all.

Sad indeed. Apogee's offices were right next door to mine at the Santa Monica airport. I didn't realize Bruce was a founder. He was probably out by the time I started working at Runway Editing in '93.

This is sad.

To describe Bruce Jackson as a true innovator doesn't even seem to give him full credit. Thankyou for everything.

RIP.  Crying or Very Sad

I got to hear "Concert Sonics" the personal headphone prototype he helped develop for Clair some years ago at a Yes concert in Fla.

By some stroke of good luck I acquired 2nd row tickets and sat right next to Jon Anderson's wife. She had a set and even though she didn't know us from Gandhi she was so generous and involved in the show (sitting Indian style in the theater style seat waiving her arms in the air as if to conduct the band) that she passed them over to me during the show. The two mixed sources very well and the headphones added to the stereo image and top end clarity. However I was more impressed at the the time by the fantastic sounding Clair rig (some type of square S4ish type boxes) in the newly built fantastic theater that was producing an amazing smooth transparent mix at a conservative level. Still to this day one of the best sounding shows I've ever heard.

Such an incredible asset we've lost.
