Studio Setup – Audio, MIDI, Sequencing, Recording & More

The latest loopop video takes a look at studio setup – how to configure and route audio, MIDI, sequencing & more.

Host Ziv Eliraz says “I invited BURG, a performer and producer I appreciate – not only for his music, but also for his ability to orchestrate and seamlessly perform with a large setup.”

Jouni Ollila (aka BURG) is a Swedish musician that got his start in the 80s performing modern industrial music. His BURG project explores creating evolving electronic soundscapes.

Whatever style of music you’re into, though, there’s a lot to learn from understanding how other musicians configure their studios. In the video, Ollila talks about gear selection, MIDI routing, tips for minimizing noise, the importance of ergonomics, audio mixing and more.
