1 ReviewsEndorse Dylan Ludwig
Dylan can add Jazz to his list of genres. Yesterday, our jazz session went extraordinarily well. I'll avoid saying the rough mix had a warm "vintage" (the most overused adjective of 2017) sound and just say that Dylan captured the essence and spirit of the music in the way it should be recorded. We did it live in one room with no overdubs.
Interview with Dylan Ludwig
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing guitar and writing songs around 12 years old. I’ve fronted bands and have played guitar, bass, keys, and drums in others. I’ve always had some sort of studio space where I would record myself, bands I was in or other projects around town. I have been running Raven Sound Studio since 2014 where I produce and record regional and touring bands.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being able to approach a project from an artists perspective. I am a musician and songwriter as well as a producer and engineer. I've written and arranged dozens of songs for myself and for others. I can take a simple idea for a song and turn it into a fully produced track, writing and playing all the parts if needed.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I love the music and sounds of the 60s and 70s and try to work them into my productions whenever possible. I like to use old-school techniques with a modern approach, combining analog equipment with the limitless potential of digital recording. I strive for rich, organic, natural sounds that match and enhance the vibe of each track.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work out of Raven Sound Studio in Prescott, Arizona. The studio is located in an old granite church building from the early 1900s. It has great hallways with 20+ft ceilings and even a large stage and hall area. I like to use these spaces as natural echo chambers and will do a lot of re-amping into them while mixing. The main studio features 2 tracking rooms and a vocal iso booth. The control room is based around a Digidesign C24 control surface and Genelec 1031a monitors. ProTools HD Native system with 32 channels of Avid i/o and analog mic pres and outboard gear by Focusrite, Tonelux, Warm Audio, Vintech, Joe Meek as well as microphones by Neumann, Royer, Mojave, Shure, AKG, Sennheiser, Blue and more!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the scope of your project? What kind of experience are you looking for? What kind of instrumentation, how many tracks per song? What do you want your project to sound like? What are your influences? What is your budget? What is your timeline to complete the project?
