Join us at the charming L.A. studio of renowned producer, mixer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Greg Wells! In this series, we uncover the fascinating story behind OneRepublic's 2006 record-breaking single 'Apologize' and then dive into the multi-track session. Wells recounts the experience of producing the band's first album, their reluctance to record this song, and the bizarre turn of events that ensued. He then takes you through the Pro Tools session and explains how each element was inspired and created, referring to microphone choice and positioning, signal chains, blending samples, effects by engineer Joe Zook, and more!
