Back at the condo/recording studio at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas the Dubway production team is at it again. This time they've gently coerced the popular Canadian band, Bend Sinister, to spend an arduous day in our guerrilla condo-turned-studio to capture the songwriting experience as it happens in real time.

There are many ways to record music. In this case, our team drags mics, audio interfaces and laptops to where the action is happening and we get to sit back and watch the drama unfold! Our host (and singer-songwriter) Ben Arthur along with our engineer/production team of Mike Crehore and Al Houghton ensure that not a single note – or inspirational moment – goes undocumented. Yes, it's a long day and, like any REAL studio situation, it has its up and down moments. But the hardworking Bend Sinister band and our intrepid production team together prevail and capture what they need to get this song well on its way!

After the session is over, the guys shoot back to their real studio, Dubway, in lower Manhattan. Here, with the help of Waves, Pro Tools and Toontracks' incredible Superior Drummer, they add the finishing production touches. Then, after a lot of hard work, boom... we've got a track!

So, come along on this audio adventure and see how all the cosmic songwriting forces come together and the new song, "Another Man's Smile" is gently brought into the world! And, as a bonus, look out for the Toontrack sponsored remix contest – with thousands of dollars in prizes – at!
