Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a Protools setup with little outboard gear. I use a Manley VoxBox for vocals and Sax. I do try to keep things to a minimum because it's not so much the gear but what you do.

We don't use auto tune...take more time for the best quality. No frills...just the real deal.
