    Emusician.com posted a very interesting interview with Mike about ATS, the security measures they take at NRG studios and they also made a video tour through his home studio, where Mike explains all the gear they use, check out part one & part two below.

    Part One: Mike takes us through the equipment he uses in his home studio.

    Part Two: Mike talks us through equipment used to record parts of Wretches & Kings & The Catalyst amongst other things.


    How do you do it? What kind of security measures have you taken?
    We hired these folks who basically sit with the drives at all times, so they go to the studio—they arrive there before us with the drives. Before we start in any studio, they assess the security protocol and make sure that it’s up to speed, and they make sure that none of our studio computers are on a Wi-Fi or connected to the wireless network in the building, that none of the computers are backing up wirelessly, so that everything is insulated and secure. And then we come in, we work, we leave, they back up, and then the drives get put in a fireproof enclosure until the next time we come into the studio.

    What about if you’re going to Joe’s studio? Do you still go through that?
    At Joe’s house, he just basically throws them on the couch [laughs].

    So this is mainly when you’re going to an outside studio?
    The security measures are more relaxed at home, but they’re still pretty high. We’ve had those guys come over and make sure our home studios are secure, but to be honest, our systems are so much simpler. I don’t ever use my studio computer to go online unless it’s to upgrade or update software for Pro Tools or my plug-ins. Other than that, it’s always offline.

    Ah, well, I didn't see it up before I started uploading. I didn't see it on any channel, I checked, so I did it myself. Nevermind, it's all good.

    OMG!!! When Mike was playing with the Wretches and Kings sample, and just started pressing all the buttons, did anyone stop to think of how freaking epic that would be as an extended outro solo type thing??? Add in Chester screaming and you've got an amazing finish to an already wonderful live song!
