The world of music production and technology can be daunting to the uninitiated. And that’s why social media star SEIDS – aka Sabrina Seidman – has made it her mission to make the subject more accessible. And it’s clearly working; at the time of writing, she boasts 189,000 followers on Instagram and nearly 175,000 followers on TikTok.

She obviously knows what she’s talking about, so we invited her to appear on the 68th episode of MusicTech’s My Forever Studio podcast – presented in partnership with Audient – to see how she’d kit out her ideal Forever Studio. For those new here, the Forever Studio has strict rules: guests are only allowed to choose six pieces of gear, beyond a computer, DAW and audio interface.

In this episode, SEIDS details the unexpected products she’s been approached to sell, the “cheeseburger of audio interfaces”, and an affordable mic that, in her opinion, beats $10,000 mics.

Elsewhere, she reveals how she used to think music production was “rocket science”, and how overcoming that hurdle herself inspired her to do the same for others.

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!

Last week, My Forever Studio hosted Erol Alkan, who talked about programming Nokias, accidentally digging through Soulwax’s record collection, and how he’s able to make any sound unique.
