  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I have two setups, my main studio with ATC monitoring and my smaller studio with Neumann monitoring. Both are mastering grade and both use the same DAW's and plugins. I don't pick to do jobs in either, I'm comfortable and confident in both studios.

  39. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
