Interview with Joey Pasternak

What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Andrew Scheps, Ryan Hewitt
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
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.
What are you working on at the moment?
Hip-hop, jazz fusion, alt rock.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
