Multi-platinum selling music producer and songwriter Jake Gosling has added an Audient ASP880 to his already gear-packed Sticky Studios in Surrey (UK), where he devotes much of his energy to developing fresh, new musical talent.

Noted for his work with a young Ed Sheeran back in 2007, Gosling confirms that, “This is something I’ve always been passionate about, and will continue to do.” And as a vintage analog gear fan, he already owns ASP008s and didn’t need persuading to add the latest 8-channel mic pre and ADC from Audient.

“The ASP880 has a wonderful true clarity to its sound,” Gosling says. “I find it incredibly transparent, there is a depth of frequency there, but this doesn’t seem to complicate the true nature of what I am recording.

He adds that the unit is “very ergonomic in design and nature” and “simple to use. It’s important for me to record quickly especially with regards to writing. I like to keep recording seamless, and to keep it simple. The ASP880 allows me to do this.”

Working on many of the tracks on Sheeran’s current album, X, getting nominated for a Grammy and hearing the track he produced, Thinking Out Loud, play on the radio are just some of Gosling’s proudest moments. “The fact that my dad is playing on the record meant so much,” he adds.

“More recently I have been approached by more established artists, but as a rule it always has to be something that I really like.” With James Bay, Tom Odell, Mr Probz, Jake Isaac, All Time Low and many other new acts in his current work schedule, it doesn’t leave much space for anything else. Having said that, Gosling has still found time to create STICKY HUB, which he explains as “a new online platform for like-minded people to come and share their music and creative experiences.”
