  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: That you need a pro studio to get good quality.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  20. A: Laptop, Interface, Microphone, Guitar & Bass. Mostly my setup now.

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: I've been producing for over 10 years, and started with using a Rock Band microphone in my drummer's basement to track everything. Bad times haha! But now, everything has changed, and I've gotten really good at what I do. I love to learn, and I'm sure with even more time, I'll get even better!

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Studio-quality for a fraction of the price.

  36. A: Depending on the song, typically a cover, I get the instrumental done within a few hours, and then send it off to the client for vocals, and additional instrumentation.
