On this episode of The Modern Recordist we have producer/engineer Graham Waks. And this is also the first ever remote episode of the podcast – Graham was kind enough to open his studio, Left Plus Right, up for us to record, instead of our usual spot, as things are busy over there these days.

Listen Now:

On this episode, Graham and I talk about recording techniques and philosophies, mixing techniques and philosophies, the process of meeting a new artist and starting a new project, and how to set yourself up to win when recording and mixing.

Graham shares some tracks from recent projects he’s worked on as well. Check out Graham Waks and his studio, Left Plus Right, online at:
