Interview with Andy

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: A hip hop project. Currently looking for rappers...

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: both. Because they both bring things to the table. Tracking is always Digital for me because the advantages of complete recall far out weigh the benefits of analogue. Analogue for recording though.

  5. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  6. A: MacBook, UAD apollo and a pair of Neumann NDH-20's. Everything else is space which the flip-flops could be taking up

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

  8. A: 20 years.

  9. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  10. A: Peter Gabriel. He's still pushing boundaries of synthesising the natural world

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: all about getting the right reverb for space. Everything else can be eq'd around it's placement

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: pop currently but lots of EDM and hiphop in the past

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: balancing a mix

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: a strong balance of electronic fidelity with acoustic naturalness

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: Mostly in the box. UAD, PMC twotwo5 + sub1, Access Virus (x2), Korg Z1 MS2000, Novation supernova, PRS guitars, Fender Jazz Bass, Taylor, Amps, mics etc

  21. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  22. A: It's always a collaboration. I've never taken a penny from artists I work with. Always remunerated at the end of the project if successful.
