MIX - March 2015 - Talking Toto XIV
MIX-2015-03 - TALKING TOTO XIV: STELLAR SONGS, MASTER MUSICIANS, AND A WHOLE LOT OF FUN
This month Mix talks to producer/keyboardist C.J. Vanston and Toto members Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro and Joseph Williams about the process of writing and recording the band's latest album, Toto XIV.
Then, Mix writers Wes Maebe and Markkus Rovito "build" their own studios for us--one all-analog at $100K, and the other a game audio-centric studio for $50K; check out their top gear pics and why they chose them.
We also talk to engineer Danny Kadar and artist Seth Avett about recording Avett's album with Jessica Lea Mayfield, Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith. The Live section features an All-Access pass to Enrique Iglesias. And this month's Classic Track tells the story behind Smokey Robinson's hit, "Being With You."
The March issue's Regional section focuses on New England, and features news from Chillhouse Studios (Boston), Anchour Studio (Windham, Maine), Rocking Horse Studio (Pittsfield, N.H.), and more!
