Blessthefall in the studio with Joey Sturgis

Joey uses a number of tools when working with bands and building productions. One of the most important parts of having a great production is having the right tools for the job. Blessthefall was assisted by Joey's products uniquely during the writing process. "Having Joey's tools to help us write was a big time saver. We started with Joey's Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0 "Fat Rat" preset for our drum sound. It was like instant WOW for writing drum parts. This allowed us to do a lot of pre production on the road and at home. Next we utilized Joey's Pod Farm Presets to build our guitar tones. We didn't really want to spend a ton of time on the sound of everything, instead we wanted to focus on the actual song and the writing. Finally, Gain Reduction Deluxe allowed our vocal demos to sound more final-mix and less demo-like. Thanks to these products, we were able to craft our album more quickly and more effectively than ever before." - Eric Lambert, Guitartist - Blessthefall
