Noah 40 Shebib Setup, Bio, & More

Some of Drake’s best music was produced and engineered from his life long friend Noah Shebib but you probably know him as ’40’. Noah pioneered the “underwater” sound that can be heard in tracks such as ’30 for 30 freestyle’. Here is a beautiful video on 40 explaining his strategy for producing Drake’s music.

He is truly an inspiration for all producers, engineers, and artists. With that being, Wisetech has compiled our official Noah 40 Shebib equipment list. If you’re looking for a hardware or software upgrade, consider one of these to improve your production.
