As an ultimate dabbler, sometimes I like to tell myself that I aspire to be a functional producer. But for all my musician friends, this is really for ya'll. Like many of ya'll are fucking nasty with that shit. I'm actually preparing for something intimate where we invite current and aspiring producers, some equipment, speakers, and just let them trade methods, workflows, lessons learned from mistakes, business models, etc. We'd even let vocal artists in on the conversation, because working with a vocal artist who don't fucking get it can be really annoying, which makes the whole process more taxing. Same goes for the other way around. What would ya'll think of something like that?
Either way, here's a video of Noah "40" Shebib talking about his workflow and working with Maschine and Komplete Control, and what he and Drake did while making Drake's latest album.
