as we say in Holland: “het duurt ff maar dan heb je ook wat”. My YB studio workshop happened last nov. At 12 noon I arrived at the studio and Matt, another pledger, was also there. There was supposed to be a third guy, also from NL, but that day many flight were cancelled due to bad weather. I’d flown in the eve before so lucky!
Benji’s studio was pretty cool, with lots of vintage and not-so-vintage stuff. Since I’m into producing, that was very much my cuppa. Benji set out creating a dub track to demonstrate techniques and the creative process. Simon joined in later and played some guitar riffs. All in all I did learn quite a few tricks, and also what tools I need to do it. As a result of it all, I’ve since gotten all the NI stuff (Komplete), an electric guitar and the UAD2 dsp card for my cubase rig. You were right Benji, that 1176 compressor sounds great
As the afternoon progressed, so did the track and Matt played a very nice riff on Benji’s iPad with some funky Moog synth app. Best of all, I got all the tracks to continue to work on back home (which I’m doing as we speak)! I made a few shorts recordings that I’ll uoload if anyones interested.
A very enjoyable day, and thank you very much Benji and Simon, you were great hosts and very friendly in sharing music and otherwise
