Mixing w/ lots of analog gear (SSL etc.), worked w/ Eddie Kramer (Beatles/Stones engineer). I’m a musician as well and on my own project, The Rockyts, I was also the producer so I got to work with Eddie on it. I’m fortunate that the songs I’ve worked on have been played on countless commercial radio stations as well as on Sirius XM.
I aim to create mixes that are powerful, exciting and convey the emotions behind a song. As a musician who sings, plays guitar, drums, bass, piano and harmonica I know what it feels like to be on the other side of all of these instruments and how to highlight the “feel” behind them.
Here is the story behind some of the pieces of gear I use.
Chandler/EMI/Abbey Road - TG Opto: This compressor is the official re-issue of the classic TG Opto compressors that were originally found in the famous TG12345 console (built by Abbey Road’s in-house team). It was used on recordings like The Beatles’ “Abbey Road”, Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and John Lennon’s “Instant Karma”. These days Chandler’s re-issued Abbey Road designs are being used on artists like Maroon 5 and Selena Gomez. I often like to use the TG-Optos on lead vocals.
SSL Bus Compressor: Potentially the most famous bus compressor of all-time, it has gained its legendary status thanks to its ability to polish and add the finishing touches to a mix. It was first found in SSL consoles along with the 611 EQ and dynamics section, which I find are great for giving power to kicks and snares. SSLs have been heard on so many hits that a 1996 Billboard report estimated 83% of #1 singles had been mixed on one. A few examples of its use include songs by The Rolling Stones, Shawn Mendes, The Smiths, etc.
