Description: We are proud to present our very first video series featuring daring creative engineer and producer Sean Everett! We visit him at his quirky studio in Los Angeles to meet “Stay High” Brittany Howard, lead singer of the Alabama Shakes. Everett talks about his professional career, musical influence and mentors who have helped develop his taste, knowledge and career. He plays the demo tape, comments on its aesthetics and discusses how he approached the whole project with a certain atmosphere. He describes his unorthodox recording methods, signal conversion, low speed tape processing, and other unusual techniques. He also reveals his master bus main chain, gives advice on referencing other material, and discusses the psychology of maintaining your vision of the finished product.
