What's your typical work process?
Mixwise: I work on the song until I am satisfied of the general sound. I then send the mix to the client for listening. We discuss together of the direction I took and what the client likes or not. I also get a list of details to tweak. I do a second version and send it for approval. Repeat if necessary. Usually there is no need for more than 1 or 2 revisions.
Tell us about your studio setup.
It is an hybrid setup. I work with REAPER, listening thru Genelecs 1038s and Yamaha NS10s. Concerning analog equipments: nice vintage telefunken preamps, Tubetech CL1A compressor, Neumann and Trident equalizers, just to name a few.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I grew up listening to Queen. But now I can get inspiration from a wide panel of artists and genres, provided that the music is good!
