What are you working on at the moment?
A tribute album for Chris Whitley and an album of my own and my studio-partner.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
I am new here...
Analog or digital and why?
Both! There is no excuse anymore for bad sound.If both worlds are connected I am happy! We record digital, edit digital and mix from DAW to analog summing into digital or to a 1/4-inch Studer A80.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What is your budget and what is your aim. The more you involve any participants into the risk of your project, the more you should be clear about your goals and if you are able to do everything´s needed.
How would you describe your style?
Open minded and rough but precise.
Can you share one music production tip?
Fight the performance. If the performance is brilliant, al the other things are not that important any more. And understand the gear you are using!! Having great gera does not help if one does not understand the functionality of it.
What type of music do you usually work on?
The type that touches me. I am not connected to any genre.
What's your strongest skill?
Mixing. Recording Drums and Vocals. Arrangement.
What do you bring to a song?
I am always hunting the emotions, the artists intended to spread. So maybe one could say my job was to peal out the tears, goosebumps, anger or other emotions from the listener.
Tell us about your studio setup.
The studio was a project studio in the beginning and then grew into what it is now: a complex setup built to the benefit for best recordings and perfect acoustics. We do our mixes in the DAW of the customers choice to an analog summing (48 channels) and record everything with 88,2kHz (RME - convertors). Our outboard gear-list reflects the quintessence of best of vintage and modern - times.
