How will Benn Jordan kit out his fantasy forever studio? Will it be a futuristic tech pad or analogue gear galore? Maybe a bit of both — just make sure that it has his all-time favourite DAW and that it’s guarded by a moat. Yes, a moat.

The producer, content creator, researcher and artist, who has been making music for over 20 years as The Flashbulb, joins us in this week’s episode of My Forever Studio, in partnership with Audient. Learn how Benn mixed and mastered his first few records on an extremely low-end rig, the “open secret” of the music tech industry, which unexpected song he uses to tune touring sound systems, and the only Forever Studio item he’d be heartbroken to lose if his house burnt down.

Benn has been a prominent figure in the music production world in recent years, thanks to his innovative discography and his investigations into the science of sound on his YouTube channel. His analyses of the music industry and some of its major players have also gained him popularity online, with a strong community built on Patreon.

His most recent endeavour has been in AI with fellow producer DJ Fresh, who has founded Voice.Swap, a stem-swapping tool that aims to pay session musicians fair royalties. Benn was made creative director of the company in late 2023, which has made him “busier than I’ve ever been in my entire life”.

The My Forever Studio podcast sees artists, producers and engineers create their dream fantasy Forever Studio, wherever they want in the universe. However, there are strict rules in the Forever Studio. Our guests are permitted a limited number of items in their creative space, so they must choose carefully. There will be nostalgia. There will be anecdotes. There may be gags. But there will be no bundles!
