Whitesnake: Interview with Doug Aldrich On Recording "Forevermore"
Stefan Hedengren of Softube recently conducted an interview with Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
Softube: So you were a fan of Whitesnake before you joined the band?
Doug: A friend of mine had all their records. The one I really loved was"Come An' Get It", I just thought it was a great record. Then "Slide It In" came out and blew me away.
Softube: Can you talk a little about the recording and mixing of the new Whitesnake record?
Doug: I've always been an analog tape type of guy. I have a 24-track machine that just sounds amazing but the limitations just started to get to me. I used to sit there and clean the tape heads like three times a day!! We did the last three or four projects using Pro Tools. Analog still got a great sound but digital is getting better and better every day. If you got a good Pro Tools rig and a fast computer, there's all these kind of plugins that work really well, and that's how I got into Softube.
