Interview with Jaff
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I worked with a Parisian band calls Tales and I recorded, mixed and mastered the "SIM-on" song in my studio ! This song is like Radiohead plays with Metallica ! We don't use drums but a cajun and it sounds very sweet and wide as well !
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My music !
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital because we can make it sound like analog ! The contrary is impossible.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Your satisfaction only !
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working with others musicians and artists and taking part of their journey.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Let's talk about your music first and what you want to achieve !

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: After running a music label in the early 2000 with bands like Enhancer and Bumblefoot, I started to recording and mix in my home studio for my music only. And in 2014, I changed my career to become a full-time production and mixer guy.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Unconditionally Rock
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Serve the music and the song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Give life back to the music ha ha !
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to prevent dynamic range, from the recording to the mixing and mastering. So, while recording, I use very few EQ and Comp to maintain the authenticity of the instrument itself. And I respect every stage which means doing what must be done during the recording process, the editing process, mixing process and mastering process. I spend quite some time to edit precisely every track within their context to bring the song to a next level
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup is very simple : a TLAudio M1 for recording drums and some other acoustic stuff, different amps like Marshall JMP1 and Hiwatt 1972, differents pedals, some API 500 series and Cubase Pro for recording, editing and mixing. I use Wavelab for mastering music. Regarding monitors, I love my Yamaha NS10 and Tannoy Reveal 8
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Regarding mixing, Andy Wallace and Rich Costey are my main reference.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly produce songs at my recording studios and clients aske me to take care of the mixing and pastering part as well
