    Hey friends,

    This video is the second part of our interview and studio tour with multi-grammy winning producer/mixer Dave Way.

    We've received a lot of wonderful comments and questions in the last episode and we're covering them in today's interview:

    We talk about drum recording and micing techniques, Dave's favourite vocal recording chain and music production. Dave tears down some of the dogmas about recording and producing of the modern age:

    - Dave's unconventional way of recording vocals to help singers keep pitch more easily & his favourite low budget tube microphone, which only costs $700 and has a 251 top end!
    - How to use microphone bleed creatively to add dimension to your mix.
    - How putting limitations on your recording process can spark your creativity and help you to create better arrangements.
    - Recording drum overheads in mono for extra depth.
    - Mixing and matching different styles of music to create something new and exciting: Giving it a twist is what keeps things moving forward, otherwise we’re all just transcribing.
    - Dave explains his advanced hybrid studio setup & routing system, shows off his favourite pieces of outboard equipment and explains what he likes to use them on: From compressors, preamps, custom guitar amps to clocks and even his process of backing up his audio files and mixes!

    As a bonus, we're also trying out several electric guitars of Dave's amazing collection:

    - Gibson ES - 330, which is almost identical to the Epiphone Casino, which was played by John Lennon, George Harrison, and Paul McCartney.
    - A custom Tele which Dave was given by Val McCallum
    - Custom guitar built by Larry Pogreba

    I hope you enjoy this interview, lots of gold nuggets in this one!

    Many Thanks,

    Warren

    I´m really excited about today´s video: I´m interviewing Grammy winning Producer and Mixing Engineer Cameron Webb.
    Cameron has been the producer and mixer for Motörhead for many years, until the tragic death of lead-singer Lemmy last year.

    He tells us about key moments in his career and the story of how he first met Motörhead: He almost blew his chance of working with them! Fortunately he got the gig and went on to build a long-lasting relationship with the band.

    Cameron shares very cool inside information about the Motörhead, their approach to recording, making music and life in general.

    We take an extensive tour of his studio, talk about guitar recording techniques, classic amps and Cameron walks us through his beautiful equipment. Every one of his devices has a story of why he picked it up, and he shares his favourite uses for several pieces of analogue gear.

    We had an amazing time: there are a lot of very interesting and funny insider stories, you´ll be able to learn from Cameron´s experience and gain plenty of new insights to recording, production and mixing.

    “You want people to be comfortable, which is why my studio looks like my bedroom when I was seventeen,” says Joe Barresi.

    When it comes to mixing, Barresi reaches for his Afterneath Otherworldly Ambient Reverb.

    “I was just like, manipulating it [the Afterneath] on a vocal, and it was creating these crazy harmonies, ‘cuz it was delayed, but they were sorta not exactly perfect ‘cuz I’m manipulating it, and it was the eeriest shit ever, man. It’s always out when I’m mixing. It’s out right now.”

    Today I'm visiting my friend Dave Way in his home studio Waystation Studio. Dave is an insanely talented, multi-Grammy winning producer and mixing engineer who has worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow, Boyz II Men, Pink, The Foofighters and many more.

    Dave decided to move from working out of major studios to producing and mixing from his home studio several years ago.
    In the process, he has gotten rid of a lot of his outboard gear including a beautiful SSL console and is leaning more and more towards mixing in the box.
    We discuss the analogue and digital recording and mixing process, what Dave considers to be the benefits of working digitally and if the analogue sound can actually be emulated using plugins now.

    Dave gives us a tour of his studio and shows off his favourite pieces of gear (he has plenty unique devices!). We geek out over guitars and as the grand finale Dave even walks us through his drum recording setup!

  • The Doghouse Studio Tour and interview with Rodger Carter - Warren Huart - Produce Like A Pro

    18:14

    ➡️➡️Click here to learn more about Rodger Carter:

    Rodger Carter is one of the rare Los Angeles natives working full-time in the music industry. He began his life in professional music by playing club shows on the Sunset Strip at just 14-years-old. A drummer by trade, steady studio work and touring soon followed, hitting the road with Lita Ford at age 21 for his first national tour.

    Rodger’s powerful and consistent style has always kept him working in one of the most competitive cities for music in the world. He’s worked both on the road and in the studio with artists like John 5, Berlin, John Waite, Justin Guarini, Eddie Money, Meredith Brooks, Evan & Jaron, Lisa Loeb, and Lita Ford.

    In 2002, Rodger opened The Doghouse Studio in LA which has been a hotspot for talent for nearly two decades. Rodger originally intended to build a glorified jam room for him and his musician friends. But when Rick Springfield (for whom Rodger drums) saw the build in progress, he offered to buy all of the equipment necessary to make it a full-blown recording facility, dubbed The Doghouse.

    When Rodger is not running Doghouse Studio he is frequently on the road touring internationally with Rick Springfield, though he’s given himself more time off-stage over the last few years.

    Doghouse plays host to a huge variety of artists—anything from the heaviest industrial metal to jazz has been recorded and mixed at the studio. Rodger plays on plenty of drum sessions, but he also rents the studio out for people who just want to use the space with their own personnel.

    As the owner of Doghouse, he has three first-call engineers on staff so he doesn’t have to worry about engineering himself. He can focus on being a session drummer and studio owner first and foremost.

    For the most part, he’s chosen a wide variety of different equipment so his engineers have options and can choose their own preference. You can see how he’s set things up in the studio tour below!

    We hope you enjoy this conversation and tour of Doghouse Studio with the amazing Rodger Carter!

  • I travelled back to 1979... they had Pro Tools - Warren Huart: Produce Like A Pro

    Welcome to 1979 is one of Nashville’s finest, most unique recording studios!

    As its name suggests, Welcome to 1979 is “a capsule of vintage vibe and gear unlike any other studio in the world.” The facility is one of a handful around the globe offering a complete analogue release, from tracking and mixing to vinyl mastering and lacquer cutting. While they rightfully pride themselves on such capabilities, the studio, of course, features a full Pro Tools HD rig for the modern-minded as well.

  • Studio Tour and Interview with Matt Linny Linesch - Warren Huart: Produce Like A Pro

    36:44

    Matt (Linny) Linesch is a producer & the owner of Infinitespin Recorders in Los Angeles.
    Read more about Matt Linesch here:


    The studio has a rich history, having been most recently owned by Toto drummer Simon Phillips. It was also once operated by Sheila E., during which time her father painted a mural in the live room that’s still there today.

    Watch the Simon Phillips studio tour here:


    Visit Warren's Instagram:


    Visit Infinitespin Recorders on Instagram:


    Matt took over the space in May 2017, making it a warm, comfortable environment for artists to be creatively free–a concept that’s paramount to Matt’s overall approach to working with musicians.

    Still working on a mostly analogue set-up, the centerpiece of Infinitespin Recorders is Matt’s 40-channel API console. Built in 1972, the desk changed hands several times, once living at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco. Over the years it found its way to a home studio in Los Angeles, where a crane was eventually used to remove it from the house! Matt shared a photo of the 1300-pound console being hoisted into the air, which you can see in the video below. It should come as no surprise, then, that it was quite a feat moving the beast into Matt’s studio as well!

    In addition to the API, Matt uses a 16-channel Neve sidecar, a Studer A827 tape machine, and an array of outboard gear. We took a look at one of his more recent acquisitions: a UTA Unfairchild compressor that he’s demoing, which was also featured in our recent Eric Valentine interview. He uses a variety of Manley equipment as well, including a Massive Passive stereo EQ which is great for adding a “tube-like” sound to the mix buss.

    For a more in-depth look at the space and the gear, please enjoy this interview and studio tour with Matt Linesch of Infinitespin Recorders.

  • WCA #033 with Joe Barresi

    1:20:50

    Working Class Audio Session #033: Interview with Joe Barresi!

    Joe Barresi has produced, engineered and mixed some of the most important hard rock, metal and punk bands of the last 15 years including Tool, Queens Of The Stone Age, Bad Religion, The Melvins, Skunk Anansie, Turbonegro and Clutch.

    Although widely respected for his abilities as an engineer (one writer wrote “If you don’t generally think of sound production as an art form, you don’t know Joe Barresi”), Joe is first and foremost a musician. He started playing guitar when he was 7, and played in local bands in New York and in Florida. He studied classical guitar, piano and music theory at the University of South Florida and the University of Miami. Joe also studied engineering, and spent hundreds of hours recording local bands, developing a patience and understanding for what goes on in the studio.

    A trip to the West Coast inspired Joe to move to Los Angeles where he began working his way up the ladder by assisting at numerous local studios. In time, he engineered for many well-respected producers including David Kahne, Michael Beinhorn and GGGarth Richardson, and gained a reputation for getting great sounds, particularly with guitars and drums.

    Soon Joe was producing and mixing records on his own. He produced, recorded and mixed the debut album for the newly formed Queens Of The Stone Age, which was unsigned at the time. The self-titled album was eventually released by indie label Loose Groove, and garnered lots of attention from press (Rolling Stone named Queens Of The Stone Age one of the ten most important hard & heavy bands of the year) and alternative radio (including KROQ) — all of which landed the band a deal with Interscope Records.

    Over the years, Joe has consistently worked with quality artists and made some of their more seminal records — Weezer “Pinkerton,” Melvins “Stoner Witch” and the Queens Of The Stone Age debut, to name a few. His discography reflects his impeccable ear for great rock music.

    Joe chats with Matt about his start, studio ownership, how an SSL impacts the electric bill, insurance, covering your ass and a few thoughts on phase. Enjoy!

  • ILIO Artist Spotlight - Joe Barresi on Overlouds Dopamine and REmatrix

    3:46

    Producer/Engineer Joe Barresi has worked with an impressive list of clients. Did you know that he is an avid user of Overloud products? We dropped by his studio with our friend Sabino Cannone, founder of MoReVoX and designer of REmatrix to see how he uses Overloud's Dopamine and REmatrix in his sessions. He even shares great advice to aspiring engineers and producers!

    Overloud's Dopamine - Audio Enhancer

    Overloud's Dopamine is not an ordinary exciter. It emulates two classic tape encoding processors, and uses them to enhance your sound naturally. It is designed to revive individual tracks as well as complex mixes while preserving their natural tone. Overloud's Dopamine does not introduce unpleasant artifacts like typical exciters do. In fact, it dynamically balances the harmonics that naturally exist in the original audio rather than generating non-existent harmonics by synthesizing them.

    Learn more:

    REmatrix - Multilayer Convolution Reverb

    Overloud's REmatrix is the next generation of convolution reverbs, made with music in mind. REmatrix combines five individual IRs to create dense, complex and unique spaces. The reverb is then processed with an effects chain designed to add liveliness, create warmth, or even completely reshape decay and create a reverb character that cannot be obtained with any other tool. Together with IR experts MoReVoX, REmatrix ships with 330 IRs and a massive amount of presets crafted during real mixing sessions.

    Why REmatrix?

    Impulse Response [IR] reverbs are great when you need to replicate a sampled space; however the typical IR offers only simplistic adjustments and does not allow more creative changes to the nature of the generated ambience. What if you need that greater level of control? What if you want to more fundamentally change an underlying element originally captured inside the impulse response? REmatrix is the answer.

  • J.J. Blair Interview and Studio Tour - Warren Huart

    1:53:09

    J.J. and I sat down at Fox Force Five–his studio in the Hollywood Hills–to talk a bit about his career, his approach to recording, and of course, the studio itself!

    Read more here:

    Fox Force Five was designed by Bret Thoeny in the mid ’90s–a highly regarded studio architect whose designs include Bob Clearmountain’s Mix This. Funnily enough, when the studio was initially put together, J.J. was somewhat new to the recording world. So, he hired Alan Hershberg as his head engineer to run the studio, who also became his mentor throughout the technical learning process.

    Over the years, J.J. has accumulated an extensive collection of vintage microphones, guitars, and outboard gear, which we thoroughly investigate during the tour. J.J. shared with us how he’s humorously been referred to as “the Joe Bonamassa of microphones” for having such an enormous collection! His affinity for them comes from a wise place, though, as he believes the microphone is the most important component of the signal chain. It is, after all, what’s capturing your sound source!

  • Dave Pensado Interview & Fab Factory Studio Tour - Warren Huart: Produce Like A Pro

    2:12:03

    This week we had the opportunity to tour the Fab Factory Recording Studio and speak with each of the fantastic engineers working there--including the wonderful Dave Pensado!

    The Fab Factory is a 4-room, 3-booth studio owned by Shaun Fabos. Right away, clients and visitors (like ourselves!) are struck by the vibe of the space. Art covers the walls of the reception and lounge areas, and the studio actually doubles as a gallery exhibiting twice yearly. Shaun ensures that the Fab Factory feels creative at all times, allowing artists to do their best work in a comfortable space.

    Each of the 4 rooms are designed for mixing, while 2 operate more as production suites. Jason LaRocca--an engineer, producer, and scoring mixer--first gave us a rundown of his setup. Jason runs Pro Tools with an Avid S3 controller, while a rack-mounted QSC unit provides 64 channels of I/O, onboard EQ and compression, and much of what of a traditional console offers. Because Jason's work involves mixing in 5.1/7.1 surround as well as stereo, the QSC functions similarly to the master section on a board, allowing him to swap speaker configurations as needed. He also has a nice collection of modular synthesizers in an A-100 rack, which he jokingly told us he plays with when Pro Tools crashes.

    Interviews:
    Shaun Fabos 0:49
    Jason LaRocca 5:25
    Michele Canova Iorfida 28:37
    Dave Pensado 50:40

    Of course, we also visited Dave Pensado in his Fab Factory home. Dave and I have been friends for many years now and had a lovely conversation about current and past projects, the state of rock music today, some of the equipment/techniques he uses, and much more! Dave mixes almost exclusively in-the-box, but he also has a selection of outboard gear that suits his style. A clever piece is the Bettermaker EQ 232 that opens as a plug-in controlled via the physical unit. Interestingly enough, Dave is also a fan of IK Multimedia's compact iLoud monitors which I use all the time!

    Prior to Fab Factory, Dave worked out of Larrabee Studios in Los Angeles where he mixed on an SSL. It was around 2010 that he discovered he was doing better mixes in-the-box than on a console, and by Pro Tools 11, he couldn't beat what he was doing with a DAW. Of course, Dave champions whatever method best enhances the individual engineer's creativity, and speaks about the importance of being receptive to new techniques. This might include, for example, using certain plug-ins that allow panning of specific frequencies--a helpful hint he gave us for keeping mixes interesting!

    As always, we hope you enjoy this look into Fab Factory Recording Studios and conversation with Dave Pensado.
