Machine is setting up shop on this episode to impart all sorts of wisdom that he’s gained over the course of his incredible production career.
We had to super size this episode to make room for all the info. Machine touches on a bit of everything. He talks about techniques he used when recording drums with Lamb of God, narrowly avoiding setting band members on fire, why you need to stop worrying about your g.a.s., and that’s all just to get the ball rolling.
“The smartest thing you can do is learn the shit out of what gear you have, and your ability to tweak it fast and use it fast and not think about it will actually probably in turn make you even dial it better.” – Machine
ON THIS EPISODE, YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:
– Growing up with musical parents
– Machine’s experience getting into the audio industry around the time of the start of hip hop
– Setting up your studio to provide artists with the “rock n roll fantasy”
– Why you shouldn’t focus on new gear
– Being a “methodless producer”
– Dialing for the riff
– And much, much more
