Tips to Audio Engineering Success With Joel Wanasek

We’re pretty excited about the work that our pal Joey Sturgis has been doing in his CreativeLive and Forum Podcast outlets. Joey is a fantastic engineer who has recorded and mixed huge bands like Asking Alexandria, Miss May I, Oceano, and many more, and what’s great about these side projects is that he’s really providing great life lessons and advice to aspiring audio professionals, completely for free!


He just dropped a nice little series with Joel Wanasek, a musician and engineer who has helmed records for bands like Trapt, Vinyl Theater, Rosaline, The Bloodline, and many more. Joel is a member of the Joey Sturgis Forum Podcast and also owns an active studio in Milwaukee, JTW Recording.
