Analog or digital and why?
Digital provides so much more capabilities, such as ease of editing, correcting mistakes, and multiple overdubs, so that you can produce a pristine recording in a much shorter timeframe.
What do you like most about your job?
I get to work with some of the most talented musicians around.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Do your homework. Go to the studio's website and listen to samples of their work. Do they provide tips to help make your experience in the studio better.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Just about all genres.
What's your strongest skill?
My skill is to make the client sound as good as possible. Through recording techniques, mixing, editing, and mastering, that is the goal. Clients often turn to me and say, "Do your magic!"
What do you bring to a song?
If the client has a producer, I defer to their expertise providing suggestions and comments for improvements. If not, I often act as the unofficial producer collaborating with the client to produce the best song possible.
What's your typical work process?
I am very flexible in the recording process, working closely with the musician to accomplish what he or she desires. Whether it is all-at-once recording or muliple overdubs, I will get the job done in a manner that is pleasing to the client.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I have a small studio using the latest Pro Tools software and some the highest quality microphones available, and the expertise to do it right.
