‘The Hot New Hip-Hop Producer Who Does Everything on His iPhone’

Here's an interesting article from Wired on an 18-year old producer who relies on the simple setup of an iPhone and an iRig.

The video is worth watching to see Steve Lacy at work, and I appreciate the article's lede:

A few minutes after Steve Lacy arrived at a dingy, weed-clouded recording studio in Burbank, the 18-year-old musician flopped down in a plush leather chair in the control room. Vince, one of the studio’s proprietors, came in to show Lacy how the mixing boards and monitors worked. Lacy didn’t care; he was just in it for the chair. He picked up his new black-and-white Rickenbacker guitar, then reached into his Herschel backpack and yanked out a mess of cables. Out of the mess emerged his iRig, an interface adapter that connects his guitar directly into his iPhone 6. He shoved it into the Lightning port and began tuning his instrument, staring at the GarageBand pitch meter through the cracks on the screen of his phone.

The most important thing in your studio might soon be the chair—and any tools you have are meaningless without the creativity to match it.
