Interview with Steven Ostroske - Coronaudio

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both. I'd one day like to own some analog gear, because a lot of the "classics" really do add their own shape to the sound. However, you really can't beat the clarity and accuracy of digital. No unwanted noise in the tracks, everything comes out sounding just like it did on the way in. On top of that, digital gives you way more control over your mix than you'd have with a tape deck.

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  4. A: Scoop the mids! Okay not really. Make it sound good at the source. If you spend the time getting the right tones, sounds, mic placements, drum tunings, or whatever other factors might come into play, your song will generally mix itself. At that point, there's no need to do anything crazy to shape the sound, so you're free to mix creatively instead of correctively.

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

  6. A: Different styles of rock - from acoustic to metal and anything in between.

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

  8. A: My goal with every mix is to bring clarity to each instrument, and to allow every part of a mix to have room to shine.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: Home studio in a finished basement. My recording setup is based around my Macbook Pro, on which I run Logic X. I've got Yamaha monitors and sub, and I use a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 interface. As of right now I have 11 different microphones, a drum kit, multiple guitars and a Vox AC15 tube amp.

  11. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  12. A: My specialty is mixing and mastering, and those are the things I enjoy doing most.
