Interview with Cory Nelson

Analog or digital and why?
Both! I disagree with the question.
What's your strongest skill?
Taking a song from an idea to a reality.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I work in and out of the box. The majority of mixing is done in Logic via the UA Apollo interface. I also use several outboard units (Preamps, Compressors, EQ's, etc.) during mixing.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I'm a sucker for anything Radiohead does. As far as music production professionals, I learn a lot from Warren Huart and Dave Pensado.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I often am sent songs with only a single instrument and vocals and am asked to develop that into a full song. Typically this involves programming and recording an entire song from scratch based on the artist's vocals.
