  1. Vintage King Workflow: EastWest Studios

    Vintage King Workflow: EastWest Studios
    Being one of the most prestigious studios in the world, the bar is set incredibly high for the quality of gear utilized at EastWest Studios, especially for audio converters. When deciding what gear to bring into the studio, EastWest's manager Candace Stewart often looks to her clients as a source of inspiration. "We find out what our clients want and we get it," says Candace. "I can't remember who introduced me to the BURL Audio converters, it might have been Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton / Sturgill Simpson), but they said they needed new converters. The people wanted a better converter." Continue reading →
  2. Vintage King Workflow: Needlz

    Vintage King Workflow: Needlz
    For Needlz, the creation of music has always centered on finding new sounds that intrigue him. Whether by way of a snare hit, synth melody or sample, the world has provided plenty of inspiration for the Atlanta-based music maker. He's written and produced multi-million-selling records for the likes of Bruno Mars, Cardi B, G-Unit, Lupe Fiasco, and countless others. In order to capture his song sketches in the moment and turn them into hits, Needlz has relied on Universal Audio's Apollo audio interface series for as long as he can remember. "I started with the silver one and I've gotten each new version since," Needlz says from the confines of Dry Rain Studio. "Now I've got two Apollo x16s in my set-up, which gives me 32 channels to work with." Continue reading →
