RSR304 – Raag Sethi – Recording in India at Compass Box Studio, Ahmedabad Gujarat

Indie music in India? Raag talked about building an affordable studio in Ahmedabad to record independent music from around Gujarat and India, growing a Youtube channel, capturing live performances, and how to keep your mic cables out of the video.

My guest today is Raag Sethi an award-nominated producer, bassist and guitarist from Ahmedabad, and also the founder of Compass Box Studio. He has been instrumental in promoting indie talent in Gujarat and India through the Compass Box Live Sessions on YouTube. 

Raag’s work has been featured in almost every major music publication in India. He has had the opportunity to work as an associate music producer with Clinton Cerejo, A.R Rahman and has also worked with Grammy-winning engineers for his projects. 

His work has been nominated for the best pop production track at the Production Music Awards in London. By focusing on one take live recordings, Raag and his team at Compass Box Studio have created high-quality production within the limitations of live recordings. His production work ranges from singer-songwriter to jazz, to neo-soul, rock and more.
