Awesome Studio Insights
Normally I don’t like these technique-discussions. I don’t care about filter-behavior, (put any synthesizer, guitar, plug-in, mixing-console, preamp, car, bike or view of anything in here) vs. (another thing) or gear talk in general. Though there are thousands of these discussions on forums, boards and Youtube for example. But this is my awesome-studio-insights posting, because I think that these videos show some really interesting aspects of the certain artist. Have a look:
Daft Punk in their studio
I think everyone wants to see Daft Punk’s studio. And if this is not a fake or so, I find this really funny. Most times on Youtube and Future Music you can see those hi-fi, glossy, superspecial studios. But this one is really messy and I believe that a lot of great artists have an environment like this.
Paul van Dyk in the studio, back in 2002 (german)
There’s a newer one around on the web. But I like to present you that one, because Paul is talking about his feeling in his studio and how he got affected by Steve Spielberg’s ‘Schindlers Liste’. The newer one is more or less complete product placement, so you do not need to see it 😉
Just because you don’t see any hip-hop gangsta rappa standing in front of their Mike with sunglasses that reflect super special Lamborghini-lights. Instead you can see something similar like a workbench where the gear is located to use it to make music. I like.
Jean Michel Jarre on concert and in the studio in 1987
Have a look on the first one and try to find music of this guy. Then you understand that he’d done some special super synthie-music back in the days when one was not used to that sound. Last but not least you can see his oldskool retro-studio from 1987 without any computer running Logic, Cubase or another flagship-DAW.
