Billie Eilish Won Multiple Grammys Using Budget Studio Gear, Logic Pro X
Longtime Slashdot reader SpaceGhost writes: Per Engadget, Ms. Eilish and her older brother (Finneas O’Connell) produced her massively widespread album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? with minimal studio gear out of a bed room studio of their mother and father’ home. They used tools that many aspiring artists might afford (about $1,000 price of Yamaha displays as an illustration, and at first a $100 microphone.) The 18-year-old singer swept all 4 of the night time’s greatest prizes — Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year — together with honors for Best Pop Vocal Album.
According to a Pro Sound Network interview with O’Connell, their manufacturing setup included a pair of $200 Yamaha HS5 nearfield displays with a $450 H8S subwoofer, a Universal Audio Apollo eight interface and Apple’s Logic Pro X. The duo reportedly used to report with a $99 Audio Technica AT2020 mic. “The stems (that is, individual layers of instruments and music) were then sent to mix engineer Rob Kinelski to compile,” provides Engadget.
