Interview with Dom Martin - NYC
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Way too much
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: My guy Nacor! A great mastering engineer.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Why limit yourself? The best engineers/producers use outboard preamps/compressors and put it back into ProTools and use lots of fun plugins. The digital/analog mix is actually pretty standard now. I'd say most major dudes use that.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The music! The energy and vibe I get from the artists I work with
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Please make sure your takes are clean with little to no headphone bleed! It doesn't actually matter to me what mic/interface you use. As long as your recording habits are good, I can work with any level of equipment.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: First of all - An electric generator (theres no electricity on a deserted island), My Fender Mustang, Laptop loaded with all my software & plugins, A pair of those fancy Neumann headphones, and an interface.
