    I did a lot of productions with Jean at his Purple Sheep studio, and everytime the result is amazing ! And now with his new (old) 24 tracks tape recorder the sound is warmer than ever with a wide range dynamic ! Highly recommended !

    I can't recommend Jean Prat enough. I recorded my first album at his studio, and the result is simply sublime. I'm a perfectionist and as soon as we started working, I knew I was in good hands. The quality of the takes and the mix is incredible, and his knowledge of music was priceless every time I needed his input.

    It is very pleasant to work with Jean who has a very good knowledge both as engineer and a musician. He is efficient, had great ears and great gears and is able to understand and listen to what you need and want...

Analog AND digital ! Both are great.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I'v been produce record and mixing for 12 years now.
What type of music do you usually work on?
A lot of pop and rock, and a lot of jazz. But i love many other things !
What's your typical work process?
Be sur the song have the right arrangements and performance. It's the key of a good mix and a good record. Then, after listening the ruff mix, I start to work, fast and focused on the "purpose" of the mix. When i have the sound i want, i start quickly balance and automations for a most part of the day. I think automation is very very important in my mixing process to get something alive and not boring !
