Interview with Chris Kahn

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both. Whatever makes sense to the project. I tend to mix in digital and commit analog processing of effects/etc.

  3. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  4. A: I will always work towards making the art you want to make. It's not my art. It's yours and I want to help you get there.

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

  6. A: What you are looking to create? Who are your influences and what inspires you? What is your timeline to finish a project?

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

  8. A: Macbook Pro, Apogee Symphony, Great Speakers, A Microphone, and a Fender Strat.
