Check out the new "Ask the Experts" post on Apogee's Transport Blog with heavy metal producer and engineer Sterling Winfield.
With various record labels, production companies, and original material bands, he has been working in the recording industry for over 20 years with credits including Hellyeah, Seventh Void, and Pantera. From January 21- February 4, 2011, Sterling will be answering your questions on producing and recording.
Born and raised in west Texas, Sterling moved to Dallas, Texas in 1988 after graduating high school, and started mixing for local bands in 1990 after completing an extensive audio engineering course with recording legend Phil York. In 1991, Sterling became a staff engineer for Dallas Sound Lab, and in late 1993 met up with heavy metal pioneers Pantera, who he worked with on their ground breaking CD, “Far Beyond Driven.” The record, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard top 200 in April of 1994, was also Grammy nominated. Since then, Sterling has continued to work with a variety of hard rock bands in the studio and on the road.
