This week we have the returning champion Madden Klass on the show to discuss the Top 5 drumming influences that shaped her playing style. Currently a student at Berklee, Madden also plays with Raavi and the Houseplants, Space Junk is Forever, Mike Doughty, Wheatus, a newer band called Mæges and many more. She was one of the last guests before we switched over this newer format and I’ve wanted to get her back on ever since. Her first episode was a very interesting deep dive into her theories on technique and practicing…so go check that out. It’s chalk full of great advice from both Madden herself and teachers that have helped her along the way. She really is one of my favorite drummers and I can’t wait to see what her career becomes. I’m seriously having such a good time with these interviews and discovering drummers that have really started changing my own playing. Thank you for coming on this journey with me and enjoy my fruitful conversation with the great Madden Klass.

It "rides" the fader in real-time and keeps both my and my guest's audio at a consistent level without the need to over compress. I also use an endless of amount of their plugins for my musical recordings such as Abbey Road Saturator, CLA Drums, the SSL Channel, and many more.
