Pharrell Williams is a household name when it comes to creating well known and catchy songs.
But whether he makes his beats, like Dre, Timbaland, Kanye West, is something that is up for debate.
In this article, I will answer the question of what DAW software Pharrell Williams uses.
What DAW Software Does Pharrell Williams Use in 2021?
When he was first starting, he worked with Chad Hugo.
It was Chad Hugo who worked on the DAW side of things, with Pharrell doing the songwriting and melodies.
Now it isn’t officially known, but, given that Pharrell likes to use Beats Studio Over-Ear headphones when producing, and because he also uses MacBook Pro, that his DAW would be Logic Pro X.
This is because, working on Mac Hardware, with Apple headphones, you need a DAW that takes the best advantage of all of this.
That’s where Logic Pro X comes in and that is why, if I had to guess, and someone asked me what DAW software Pharrell Williams uses, that would be my first guess.
But what about plugins?
What VST Plugins Does Pharrell Williams Use in 2021?
After all, whilst Logic Pro X is great out of the box, for Pharrell Williams to be able to craft a song and sounds to his liking he is going to need plugins.
Again, not official, but, based on his style and how his music sounds, he may use plugins such as Metric Halo's ChannelStrip 2, Waves Renaissance Compressor Plugin and a UAD DBX 160.
This is a super short article.
But hopefully, it has helped answer the main question that the title poses.
Little is known about the production process of Pharrell Williams.
I just know that what he creates always sounds fresh.
I like to think that any aspiring producers who are also his fans will find this article useful enough for them to take the plunge and try to create their music.
