Painters paint pictures on canvas. But musicians paint pictures on silence.

Hurst Audio Productions can now be found at hurstaudio.com instead of the old domain which was longer to type. Codyhurst.com also brings you to the same place for the time being. I have also discontinued my business with my old hosting company after a decline in customer service quality and the fact that they tried to charge me to a payment method I didn't authorize and a refund I requested but they claimed would take 7 days even though I had gotten a refund within 24 hours before. The site has been having some issues since I lost my original php files and now have to edit all my files again but it will give me a chance to get the site up to date.
We have some new additions to the site as well! Jim Snowbarger, the creater of the Snowman radio broadcast has kindly agreed to let me host all 81 episodes of the SRB show produced from mid 1999 to mid 2001. Please check him out at The Snowman Radio. The Snowman is streaming live again on mushroom.fm and he's got a pile of JAWS scripts you might want to sort through, including scripts for Reaper and the most godly set of scripts known as Hotspot Clicker.


Introduction

Hurst Audio Productions is run by Cody Hurst, a blind musician and audio recorder in western Oregon.
Mixing and producing audio has been a hobby of mine since 2008. I have been involved with many different projects from podcasts, radio bumpers to music. Since the age of six I picked up playing the drums and began playing guitar when I was twelve. Toward the end of high school I recorded several song ideas which were mostly quick jams. You can hear them on the demos page. For Weatherscan fans, I have a dedicated page just for you. You can download a four disk set of the Weatherscan sound track and Alan Jackson voice files. Please note that the local forecast music by Trammell Starks is not being offered through this website any longer. I thank you for stopping by...but first, if you don't know where to begin, then why not start out by reading my bio.


My Gear


How do you record your music?

As a blind musician, access to digital audio workstation software under Windows is very slim. By far the most usable and cost effective solution that I use is Reaper 5.X digital audio workstation software, and the free and open source screen reader NVDA. In order for Reaper to be fully accessible, one must install the Osara plug-in as well as the SWS extention. If you are interested in how to use NVDA with Superior Drummer, first read my page on Setting up your EDrums with Superior Drummer. When you are done, continue on to read about accessing Superior Drummer with NVDA with the vMouse and vTurbo addons
