Wolfstag on SoundBetter

I am a purist and therefore value audio quality, great dynamic range and good audio balance. To me, the mix must be dense, well imaged, organic and character-full.

Interview with Wolfstag

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both, because both have their strengths and weaknesses. I like analog for its width, intuition and character. I like digital for its flexibility, total recall, ease of archival and reliability.

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: I started to be interested in live sound, recording and mixing about 12 years ago and I am now working professionally in this domain since 2012.

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: What's your background/experience? Which artist do you listen to right now? What is your inspiration?

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: I promise you'll hear your music in a way you haven't heard it before.

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: When I can feel the music and get goosebumps.

  11. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  12. A: My MacBook, soundcard, Beyer DT-250 and my ATC SCM50.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Sharp, balanced, big but personal.

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: Hip Hop, indie, folk, pop, electronic

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: I bring life and interest.

  19. Q: What's your typical work process?

  20. A: I usually check the gain to see if every track peaks around -12 DBFS. Then I listen to tracks one by one and process them, usually with gates, comps, EQs, stereo width processing and/or modulation. After that I send tracks to busses by instrument or section and add reverb

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: I use 3 way JBL LSR32 speakers with a Hafler P7000 amplifier, connected to my DDA Q2 and Motu 16A.

  23. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  24. A: Spike Stent, Dave Rat, Michael Brauer, Jack Joseph Puig, Denis Savage
