Interview with Jack Simchak
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Dance music and different subgenres of rock music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ability to adapt to different genres.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I provide a part that fits the context and emotional content of a song as closely as possible. I have experience in most forms of popular music, and can emulate most artists on instruments in terms of tone and technique.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually have a client send me a stereo Wav. file, and then I record whatever instruments are requested in my Pro Tools setup. For guitar and bass I provide both a 100% dry direct track, as well as one through an amp or amp sim. For vocals I usually provide just a dry track, but can add plugins if it is requested. For keyboards and programmed drums I provide a Wav. file as well as a MIDI track to the client. I can give multiple revisions of each instrument to ensure that the client is satisfied and ask for feedback during the process.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I run a Pro Tools 12 setup on an Apple 6-core Mac Pro. I use an RME Fireface UCX, Yamaha monitors, a Yamaha sub, a Sure SM7. I run plugins from Avid, IK Multimedia, Joemeek, Softube, Peavey, Melodyne, and Toontrack.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Recording artists who inspire me are Jimi Hendrix, Savant, John Williams, Justice, and Scott Henderson. I am also inspired by recording engineers such as Eddie Kramer, Ted Templeman, and Andy Johns.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do is recording guitar, bass, and vocals for other artists' recordings. I have experience recording for pop, rock, EDM, metal, country, funk, blues, and classical music.
