Imagine you have an unlimited budget and can spec up your perfect studio. Where would it be? What would it look like? And what gear would you want in it?
In MusicTech’s first-ever podcast – My Forever Studio – your hosts Chris Barker and Will Betts ask artists, studio pros and industry luminaries to imagine a studio that they would be happy to live out their days in.
There are some rules in the Forever Studio. Guests are only allowed to have six pieces of music or production gear in their studio, plus one non-gear-related item. And, to stop the music intelligentsia from cheating the system, there’s a strict no-bundle policy.
Season 1 is currently underway, with the first four episodes now live.
- Ep 1: Danny Byrd’s unusual luxury item
- Ep 2: Strongroom showdown w/Brendon Harding & Jake Murray
- Ep 3: Drew Bang’s post-fact microphone
- Ep 4: Hinako Omori’s Okinawan recording sanctuary
Later in the series, expect guests such as beatboxer/comedian Beardyman, Spitfire Audio co-founder Christian Henson and more!
Between them, MusicTech’s My Forever Studio co-hosts, Chris Barker and Will Betts have decades of music production, media, DJing and songwriting experience, and they’re having plenty of fun with their guests and subject matter.
Co-host, Chris Barker says, “It’s been an enormous amount of fun to make, and I think that comes across in the recordings. It’s nerds like us having fun dreaming up their ideal studio – what’s not to love?”
Features Editor, Will Betts says “We basically just made a podcast we’d want to listen to. Listeners will enjoy getting a real insight into our guests’ approaches and what inspires them to create.”
