Hi Friends, I hope you’re doing marvellously well!
Today, I’m visiting Dave Way in his home studio “Waystation Studio”. Dave is an insanely talented, multi-Grammy winning producer and mixing engineer who has worked with Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow, Boyz II Men, Pink, The Foofighters and many more.
Dave decided to move from working out of major studios to producing and mixing from his home studio several years ago.
In the process, he has gotten rid of a lot of his outboard gear including a beautiful SSL console and is leaning more and more towards mixing in the box.
We discuss the analogue and digital recording and mixing process, what Dave considers to be the benefits of working digitally and if the “analogue sound” can actually be emulated using plugins now.
Dave gives us a tour of his studio and shows off his favourite pieces of gear (he has plenty unique devices!). We geek out over guitars and as the grand finale Dave walks us through his drum recording setup!
I had an amazing time and we’ll be back for a second interview soon. If you have any questions you would like me to ask Dave, please feel free to leave them in the comments below this post or the youtube video. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed the interview. Don’t forget to post and comments and questions you have in the comments below.
Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,
