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

  10. A: It depends on the project, but I think having a vision and an idea of where a track is going is important. It’s also important not to get in the way of the creative process and let things happen in a natural manner. It doesn’t matter how you get the end result.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: My setup consists of high quality monitoring and conversion, crucial for hearing the performance and any nuances. I also use high quality preamps from Audient which capture a full sound without colouring the signal. When I want to add colour I use the outboard equipment and saturation plugins to warm and excite.

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

  14. A: I’m currently enjoying Mac Demarco’s style of recording and production. I’ve also been listening to Shay Lia, who’s production I find really powerful alongside her strong vocals.

  16. A: The most common work I do for clients is recording and mixing.
