Studio Session

Into the Box: Processing Hardware Instruments

Despite the countless software emulations of seemingly every synth, drum machine and acoustic instrument ever built, many electronic music makers still incorporate some hardware gear in their set up.

Whether it’s for their unique sonic properties, their tactile, physical interfaces, or just for that indefinable “mojo”, those hardware sound sources continue to inspire – and so getting them into your DAW and processing them “in the box” is a matter of some importance.

In this 60 minute studio session, renowned producer and mastering engineer Stefan Betke, aka Pole, will demonstrate how he goes about capturing the character and nuances of some of his favorite pieces of hardware and will show the possibilities for further sound processing and refinement once the sounds are inside the box.


Studio Sessions are for small groups and require pre-registration. Sessions are only accessible if you have a ticket which includes access to the Workshops and Studio Sessions program – for information, check the FAQ. Registration is now open.
