Neat Tweets: Pro Sound News’ Twitter Feed for July, 2011

The hot summer months often slow things down, but not the Pro Sound News Twitter feed! We spent July serving up our daily headlines and plenty of intriguing, surprising and informative audio-related stories from around the mainstream media. Sift through this compendium of Tweets and you’ll find cool photos (Penguins at Abbey Road! Al Pacino as Phil Spector!), videos (The history of Rough Trade records! Children of Bodom’s live engineers!), Summer NAMM coverage, intelligent analysis, technological breakthroughs and some just plain weirdness. Most of PSN's tweets are our daily headlines, but the list below is everything else we posted. The best way to enjoy our Twitter feed, of course, is to follow us at www.twitter.com/prosoundnews.
