WATCH: Audio-Technica “Ask Me Anything” with Producer/Engineer Joe Barresi

Joe Barresi has amassed an impressive list of clients over the years, acting as a producer, mixer and engineer on some of the top rock albums of the last two decades. Having worked with everyone from Monster Magnet, Slipknot, Beatsteaks, Queens of the Stone Age, Chevelle, Bad Religion, Nine Inch Nails, New Model Army, Soundgarden, Jane’s Addiction and Tool to Volto, Weezer, Keren Ann and Hole, Barresi is nothing if not well-rounded. His extensive resume is proof of his value to artists, and he himself is constantly learning and trying new things in the studio.

In a 2013 interview with Sonicscoop, writer Eleanor Goldfield noted that, “While he [Barresi] spends a few two-day blocks a year teaching intensive recording classes, Barresi is himself a constant and avid student of audio. From learning about software drum sampling by working with FXpansion BFD on the ‘Evil Joe’ drum collection to building his own effects pedals, he is eager and willing to push boundaries, and find new ways of advancing his craft.”

In the same article, Barresi added that one of the focuses of his workshops is to “get people to use their ears and preserve the art of recording.”
