PITTSBURGH – MythBusters Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage recently spent the afternoon recording at Treelady Studios. The pair were in town for the “MythBusters: Behind the Myths Tour,” but had to provide audio for an upcoming production.
The duo had over a dozen pages of over dubs for the April 1, 2012 show “Unchained Reaction.” Which is a science and engineering reality game show that airs on the Discovery Channel.
Senior engineer Dave Hidek recorded the session, and worked with the Discovery Channel to process and deliver the audio.
“They were coming off of nine shows in eight days,” relates owner Garrett Haines. “They were supposed to have a few hours off for downtime, but the producers at Discovery Channel needed this audio for an immediate air date. Once they arrived, we took their caffeine orders and they got to work. Both men were organized, polite, and wonderful to work with.”
The two had little time for socialization, but Savage took a full tour of the Treelady facility. Of course, musical instruments and microphones weren’t their favorite things. “I like this room!” said Savage of the Treelady Laboratories. It was just like home.
