The initial stretch of interviews in our artist series was done without discussions prior to it regarding the interviewee’s interest and experience with amp sims and plugins. This made for a few interviews that maybe came off a little forced.
We thought about how we could change things so we weren’t limiting our options to only guitarists into the digital and software sides of the market. We are going to send out a three question “pre-interview” so we can fine tune things a bit.
In situations where the folks we talk to aren’t really into or haven’t really thought about amp sims, there’s still a lot to be learned from their gear, how they record and other factors that can be used to recreate things with plugins.
Thanks for your support!
