I have worked with Charlie on a number of records over the years and i have always loved the experience. Charlie is a highly skilled producer, engineer and writer who's very comfortable in any situation (and we had a variety of those!!). He's super calm in the studio and has great vision for any task given. Like i said, i love creating music with Charlie and i highly recommend his skills!
Interview with Charlie Thomas
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My home studio consists of a Mac Pro, Pro Tools 10, Reason 7, Logic 9, Apogee Quartet, NS10s/KRK Rokit RP6s, Sure SM7, UAD Quad & Satellite Duo, SoundToys, Melodyne, Auto-Tune, Gibson Les Paul Classic, 1976 Guild D50-NT Acoustic Guitar, Fender Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass, Marshall MA100C 100w 2 Channel Combo Amplifier, VOX Tonelab EX Vavletronix Multi Effects/Amp Emulator Tube Pedal
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: In my opinion, there are 3 main things in every song, the lead vocal, the bass and the kick drum. These are the centre of your stereo field and the parts that everyone hears! You should spend more time getting these 3 things right and working together than anything else in your mix.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I had my formal training in a primarily analogue studio and its here that I learnt how important it is to use proper equipment to get the best sounds. Obviously you still need good players, but great gear, good mics and a fine desk makes all the difference. However the freedom you have with using digital means you can make music sound amazing. I know this comment will divide the crowd, but I really think that you need to utilise what you can actually do with technology. So what's wrong with both? I think to be successful you need to know why there is an argument between the two.
