Interview with Alex Dobbert
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1. My laptop w/ plugins 2. an SM57 3. my handbuilt U47 4. Apollo Twin And I bet I could make some killer records with that setup.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have most UAD and Waves plugins, as well as a ton of others from Plugin Alliance, Avid, and others My monitoring includes original Yamaha NS-10Ms, B&W 805s, and a pair of Klipsch Heresy floorstanding hifi speakers for fun. I have a highly custom, 20 channel Cadac J-Type console, as well as a custom summing amp with API mixbuss that I built myself.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I use both! I love what my console and summing amp can bring to the vibe of a track, but I pride myself on my plugin collection--I love having full recall and the width and depth of analog.

A: I've been drumming and recording most of my life, but I've been making money as an engineer and musician for around 5 years.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
