465 - The Wong Episode
Brian, Blake, and Richard are joined by the one and only Cory Wong for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!
We are joined by the legend that is Cory Wong and naturally we talk compression and specifically the Wampler x Cory Wong Compressor. First though, it's calculator nostalgia - because why not? Cory then gives us a little insight into his early days, his formative influences, and the mindset he developed that has got him to where he is today. Creative folk are going to absolutely love this episode!
Brian is curious to learn about some of the bands that influenced Cory and also how he built up his ridiculously precise sense of rhythm. He tells us a trick that anyone can follow but it may cause marital issues and it requires dedication. Cory also breaks down the formula for his influences in a candid interview while also showing us how he channels his creativity into his art.
Cory also details the songwriting process he follows from the ground up and then we get on to some reader questions - most of which are vaguely sensible. He tells us some session work tales and then Brian and he analyze how the Wampler x Cory Wong compressor came to be and what makes it different. Cory also graciously joins us for the first part of the Patreon so this might be a good week to join us for the secret stuff...
Please note - because this is a long and information-dense episode we didn't manage to get the producers names in at the end - sorry bout that - normal service resumes next week...well I say "normal"....
Drug Wars, Skateboards, Nile Rogers, obscure Blackadder reference, Production tips...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!
