A: i mixed lot of genre, but most of my works is pop-rock-metal stuff
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: when you layered snare/kick with sample (using drumagog/aptrigga), always use the original sound with minimal 20-30% mix with the sample, never ever 100% replace the sound, because however bad the drum sound, it will bring more natural groove and feel into the song

Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: acoustic guitar, ukulele, cajon, timpani, megaphone. then i'll make a band with spongebob, and sing in front of squidward house
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: both of them are great, and each has it own advantage, to try to make it works from both analog and digital is the real job. but in the very end, good mix is a good mix and the man behind the gun is what matter most, whether is came from 48ch SSL mixer or from cubase 5 with stock plugin
