News Story

In the studio with Sin Quirin

We are excited to announce the launch of our new YouTube channel Focusrite TV Latinoamérica, which will concentrate on creating content and providing extra support for the Latin America communities. We’ll be working with some well-known and creative artist from LatAm as well as doing some ‘Getting Started Videos’ to help you along your music-making journey.

For our first set of videos, we’ve teamed up with Ministry’s two-time Grammy nominated guitarist Sin Quirin. Sin has been a member of Ministry since 2007 and has co-writing credits on their last four albums. He also performed on the last two Revco albums and has been a guest touring guitarists for Lords of Acid and DJ Hardware.

We caught up with Sin at a rehearsal studio in Burbank California ahead of Ministry’s latest North American tour to check out his guitar tone.  He shares some candid stories and kicks out a couple riffs through his pedal board/mesa boogie signal chain. For the second video, Sin helps us demonstrate that you can get some great tones whether you’re mic’ing up a cab with a SM57 or recording direct and adding an amp/cabinet simulator. Ministry fans will find this riff very familiar!

You can catch Sin Quirin on the upcoming Lords of Acid 2019 USA tour.

Up Next we’ll be stopping by Mexico City for a special Guitar Masterclass with Tonio Ruiz of CODA and QBO fame.
