Interview with Alex Dobbert

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

  2. 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.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. 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.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. 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.

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

  8. 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.

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

  10. A: I love most music, and I truly enjoy bringing out the best in a track regardless of the recording conditions. Once you feel your song is ready, give it to me and I'll strive to make it the best possible version it can be.

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

  12. A: I strive to take the excitement and story of each song, and amplify it in a way that is competitive in the marketplace, with a sound that is timeless.

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

  14. A: Phil Ek/ Andrew Scheps/ CLA/ F Reid Shippen/ Jonathan Wilson

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

  16. A: I primarily mix, utilizing a hybrid mixing setup to take advantage of the best parts of analog and digital technologies. This allows me to provide competitive mixies at super-affordable rates. Additionally, I provide mastering services and live drum tracks.
