Setting Up A Creative Space – Music Producer Edition

At Hosa, we believe the music business is the people business. This especially rings true for music producers. When actively recording artists, musicians, and bands, one single kink can ruin the entire experience for everyone. The last thing you want to think about as a music producer is why a piece of equipment, whether a console or single audio cable, isn’t working the way it should – ruining the energy of the atmosphere and potential relationship with a client.

Throughout the years, Hosa has been lucky enough to work alongside, partner with, and sponsor a diverse list of artists. 2020 was a difficult year for all of us and while many center around the industry we are proud to call home, we are first and foremost in the people business and that doesn’t limit itself to music.

Today we’re featuring Beau Burchell, founding member of Saosin and active music producer, who filled us in on what he’s been up to.

Beau Burchell, Saosin Guitarist & Music Producer, Interview

I don’t think I have one favorite part. I enjoy it all. I enjoy soldering, I enjoy building weird contraptions to make my life easier. I enjoy comparing the difference between two microphones that are the same exact model and hearing how they differ from each other. I enjoy every part of it.

My name is Beau Burchell. I am the founding member of the band, Saosin, and I produce records, mix records, everything. I’ve just always felt like I needed my own space to create whenever I want which is why having a space at home has been so appealing to me and now I just love it at any point. Especially now with kids I can put the kids to bed and after my wife falls asleep if I’m still getting that crazy itch in my brain about trying something or comparing something I can always come back out here and keep fiddling with stuff like a mad scientist until wee hours in the morning and then wake up and go to to work the next day and doing the same exact thing.

Hosa works with workflow because you don’t have to think about, you know? And those aren’t things you want to think about when you are focusing on something artistic. Or if you have a group of people or a band, especially if it’s a new relationship, the last thing you want is to plug in a cord to something and then have the band or artist think that your equipment is shotty because something doesn’t work. And it’s all because of just one little connection on a cable. You’re sitting there trying to troubleshoot, figure it out and the band thinks you have no idea what you’re doing because of this small little thing that caused you so much grief. So if you can eliminate that from the equation, you’re instantly in a better spot.

Regular mic cables and instrument cables that I use from Hosa – the reliability and the sound quality. Those are the only two things that you care about. You want it to work all the time and you want it to sound great when it does work. They check both those boxes. And I’ve pretty much switched to all Hosa edge series cables now.
