What's your strongest skill?
What do you bring to a song?
I hope I can bring what I feel the song is bringing or trying to bring to me - as a listener.
What's your typical work process?
Typically, I always check for technical errors in the tracks. I perform clean ups and any editing prior to mixing.
If I am mastering, I like to typically listen through a track fully, may be twice at times before doing anything to it.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I specialize in working entirely ITB with Sonar X3 64-bit. I am a certified audio engineer so I learned about audio technicality and also grew up working with analog. But I also got a firm grasp on working in the digital domain. That and the fact that digital allows for easy recalls, manipulating audio, and unique processing it truly unleashes a power in my work process. My room is accurately tuned with many bass traps and adequate diffusion. I use the Cranesong Avocet for superior D/A conversion routed to Trident HG3's along with dual SVS sealed-design subs. Sonarworks HD room correction is the final icing on the cake that gives me a virtually flat response in my room allowing me to hear things for what they are.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
All dedicated and serious musicians inspire me!
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I mostly do mixing and mastering, remotely. All files are exchanged online and this way allows me to work with any artist or band in the world.
