Interview with Sergey Kruglov
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Anything that can help me to understand their vision and the sound they want. The best way to demonstrate vision is to use references so I ask for reference tracks, favourite productions.

A: I started in 2012 as live sound engineer in Gnesin Academy Concert Hall a year later I started working at broadcast station "Orpheus" recording and mixing classical music concerts in various halls in Moscow. Since 2015 I work at Mosfilm Music Recording Studios, I assist during recording sessions and record and mix music myself as engineer.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: For remote services I usually mix completely in the box. I use Avid Pro Tools software and plugins from Universal Audio, Audioease, Soundtoys, Kush, Fabfilter and Waves.

It is possible to arrange mixing session at Mosfilm Music Studio 2 where we have 48-channel SSL 4000G console, Prism Sound converters and finest outboard gear from API, Neve, Universal Audio, Summit etc. Yamaha NS-10, ProAc Studio 100, Kinoshita monitors and professional acoustic environment designed by Tom Hidley.

A: I'm really inspired by the work of Andrew Scheps, Tchad Blake, Michael Brauer and Eric "Mixerman" Sarafin.
