Based in Los Angeles for the past decade I got my start at the historic Sound Factory & Sunset Sound recording studios. Since then I have worked as a recording engineer to Producer & Mixer Tony Hoffer, as well as independently producing, engineering and mixing.

I love all parts of the music creating process from production to engineering and mixing. I look forward to hearing what you're working on and how I can help fulfill your vision.

Interview with Cameron Lister

Analog or digital and why?
Both bring their own unique strengths to a project. I can't imagine not using one or the other.
What do you like most about your job?
Getting to work with some of the most creative artists in the music industry and continually being inspired by the art they create.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
1) ProAc Studio 100s - I gotta be able to hear what we're working on! 2) Vintage U47 - If it doesn't sound good on this... then it doesn't sound good. 3) Aurora GTQ Preamp - Modern and classic sounding. 4) Empirical Labs Distressor - Easily the most versatile compressor in existence. 5) SM57 - A great mic and hammer for putting together that island hammock.
Can you share one music production tip?
Processing signals in parallel, whether with compression or distortion, is a powerful way of adding excitement to a mix.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Alternative/Rock/Pop. A pretty wide range of material.
What's your strongest skill?
I think my strongest skill is my ability to objectively listen and make strong choices based on those observations. What elements are the most important to help convey the emotion of the material? Do they need to come forward more? Is there something preventing the most dramatic impact?
Tell us about your studio setup.
A combination of Pro Tools HD, a ton of plugins from Soundtoys, Valhalla DSP, FabFilter, iZotope, and a few choice pieces of analog gear including ProAc Studio 100s, Classic API Summing, LA2A, and excellent microphones.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
There are so many. John Fratelli is an otherworldly talent that I've had the good fortune to work with. Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois for the sonic landscapes they have created over the years. Tony Hoffer.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Mxing, Engineering and production. Typically working with artist to find the best way of combining analog (real drums, guitars) and digital elements (synths and programming). From the very start of a song through mixing.
