Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I think both analog and digital have its place in todays world of audio production. I personally like the character of the sound produced through analog gear. It tends to have a warmer feel. Music produced in the digital domain tends to have a sharp/edgy sound. Both have there place in different genres of music.

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
