Frank Reber is a musician, recording engineer, culinary enthusiast, and small business owner residing in Muncie, Indiana. Frank graduated with a bachelor’s degree in telecommunications, with a focus in audio production from Ball State University. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Digital Storytelling & Journalism, while teaching audio production as a graduate assistant. In addition to 10+ years of recording experience and a college education focused on audio production, he was also an intern at Electrical Audio, in Chicago, where he learned the art of analog recording mediums.
In 2009 Frank opened his private recording studio to the public and began recording bands and musicians under the name Reber Recording which is a nod to the family tool and die business, Reber Machine & Tool. Frank tends to work primarily with rock-based bands and is rather particular when it comes to his recording methodology. He doesn’t work with auto-tune and prefers to keep things as pure and simple as possible in an effort to avoid convoluted and pretentious sounding records. Frank, himself, is a veteran of the Indiana music scene, having played bass in a number of bands and recording projects over the years. All of his musical contributions can be heard and/or purchased on bandcamp.
As if being a student, teacher, musician, husband, and recording engineer weren’t enough, Frank and his wife, Lauren, announced in 2012 that they are planning on opening up a gourmet coffee and tea house in Downtown Muncie, Indiana. The venture will be called “The Caffeinery” and they plan to open before Christmas of 2013.
