  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: I work in a LEDE control room, my listenings are Tannoy SRM15X, Dynaudio LYD-8, Event 20/20/15 and more. Too many microphones; Neve and API preamps; RME converters. I mix and master ITB. I endorse Gibson and Mesa Boogie as guitarist.

  36. A: Mixing and mastering engineer is my first job. I can also arrange and produce a song starting from your idea. I play guitars so I can add professional guitars to your song. When specific session musicians are needed, I can provide them too. So, often, I'm in charge of following the song from the arrangement to the mastering.
