Watch Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and Studio 606’s Chief Engineer John “Lou” Lousteau discuss their different perspectives on drum recording while they track “Down in Flames” with the artist Stolen Thunder.
The Foo Fighters Studio 606 relies on Apogee’s Symphony I/O Mk II audio interface as the centerpiece of their recording rig. The flagship AD/DA conversion quality offered by Symphony is essential for capturing every bit of detail from their legendary Neve console to their Pro Tools HD system. “It just sounded f****** good,” Lou commented, after hearing Symphony I/O for the first time.
When Studio 606 is occupied, drummer Taylor Hawkins is able to record on a similar Symphony I/O rig at his home studio, without sacrificing quality. “When we were putting the rig together for his house, Symphony was perfect,” Lou remarks.
