Our good friends over at Audient have a brand new product! It is called the Evo 8! It is a 4 input/4output USB interface that costs about $200 and it has the auto-gain function! This is the first one in the country, and they sent it to us! I’m very excited about this product!
Our friend Andy Allen at Audient, really went out of the way on the Evo 8! He’s been telling me about this product for a a long time! We’ve already done a video where we review the Audient Evo 4 where we got some amazing results. Their products are selling like hot cakes, because they’re amazing. They’ve got the auto-gain function, which we’re going to use.
We’re going to record a full band, including a drum kit, electric guitars, acoustic guitar, and vocals! We’re going to prove that it really comes down to your skills as an engineer (or mixing engineer), because the auto-gain function will do so much work for you!
Our friends over at Audient have been gracious enough to give us 3 of the Evo 8 units to give away! You can enter to win below!

You can also download the multitracks from this session so you can follow along with me as I mix this track!
On drums we have Blair Sinta (Alanis Morissette, Melissa Etheridge, Chris Cornell, Annie Lennox, Stevie Nicks, and many more!), on vocals McKail Seely, who we will be doing a ton more with coming up, and of course myself, Warren Huart, on guitars!
The song in today’s video is one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite artists; Mr. Peter Gabriel. The song is “Solsbury Hill.”
