On this episode of the My Forever Studio podcast, presented in partnership with Audient, we’re joined by revered vocalist and producer Raphaella. The London-based producer has a seriously impressive portfolio — but how will she fare with only six items in the Forever Studio?

Podcast hosts Chris Barker and Will Betts hear about Raphaella’s career journey, from her early beginnings in school orchestras and learning Logic Pro to working as a vocal producer with the likes of David Guetta, Rudimental, Little Mix, Martin Solveig and more. You’ll also learn about how her Persian heritage influences the styling of her fantasy studio, which iconic polysynth is known as her “first-born”, and what she classes as the perfect vocal compressor.

Raphaella also uses some tricks to get around our strict rules in the Forever Studio…

Last week, we spoke with Canadian funk duo Chromeo, who told tales of being electrocuted by their DIY talkbox, a Cubase skin that wasn’t quite approved by Steinberg, and the essential instruments they used in their new album, Adult Contemporary

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!
