The article profiles engineer/audio scientist Keith O. Johnson. Johnson, aka "The Professor," the secret weapon behind dozens of acclaimed albums for Reference Recordings, incorporates some of these seemingly timeless techniques into his Grammy Award-winning work. Furthermore, his hand-built equipment and audio innovations- from high-speed to high-def--have not only raised the bar for high-fidelity albums, but changed the way that people hear music. Johnson went on to contribute his knowledge to the MCA DiscoVision video disc, engineered orchestral works for the Armed Forces Radio and conceived an optical CCD scanner, the Colortek system, which removes noise from damaged motion picture soundtracks.
