I've been making records since 1999. I enjoy working closely with clients who are as passionate about music as I am.

Interview with Andrey Nenadyshin
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Not yet, but I plan to get new contacts here
Analog or digital and why?
Mix of both.While recording I use mics and already at that stage I try to record the final sound, so I make the mix of mics in analog, then I equalize and compress it. This approach makes it possible to get "fat" sound and minimize the digital noise (jitter) and save the number of channels. When mixing, I use only ANALOG mixing console. This means that every track goes through a separate channel providing maximum transparency (clear background), space and thickness. This is possible due to the fact that in analog the summing goes by summing voltages, while digital summing is purely adding 0 and 1 which may result that one instrument can influence another and even deduct some frequences from other instruments giving in the end unclear and quiet background
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
I am not the guy who sets up the mics and pushes the rec, stop and play buttons.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What music do you listen to? Which recordings you consider to be best and why? What do you want to achieve?
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
There is nobody out there to record and produce) So I would rather go for a hammock and decent supply of whisky) But a compressor, a couple of mics, a console and a couple of good monitors will do no harm
How would you describe your style?
Wall of Sound! Complete and solid sound canvas all the way around stepping out of the speakers' borders
