Although it has been a long minute since the latest installment in this series, we thought some of our music minded makers might be interested in the Studio Talk blog feature from Germany’s specialist Electronic / Dance music store What People Play. For their sister-site What People Say, artists would be invited to describe their studio set-up and their recording process, revealing some of their gear, methods and sonic priorities.
From the long distance collaborations of Discrete Machines, to the “I don’t even have to leave my chair” lo-fi DIY of Benjamin Shaw, onto the more audiophile approach of Alex Finkin, there’s likely a story or tip to inspire any fledgling producer or composer.
If you’d like to check some of the latest material from in-house composers, visit the Adafruit Soundcloud.
