  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Hip-hop, jazz fusion, alt rock.

  5. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  6. A: A few years ago I was working with a local alt rock band and went to record two songs in their apartment. I only had my Saffire Pro40 and a few mics and DIs with me so I had to get creative on trying to capturing everything and isolating things enough to work with later. The instruments were tracked all together live and overdubbed the vocals. I am really happy with how things turned out and smile every time I re-listen to the tracks.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?
