I am a singer/guitarist/bassist/producer living in Brooklyn, NY.

I compose pop, EDM, and rock music in my Pro Tools recording studio. I can remotely record vocals, guitar, keyboards, and bass, for your songs on my recording setup. I also provide vocal time/pitch editing, drum programming, and synthesizer programming. I also write lyrics for other songwriters.

Interview with Jack Simchak

  1. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  2. A: Dance music and different subgenres of rock music.

  3. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  4. A: My ability to adapt to different genres.

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. 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.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. 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.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. 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.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. 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.

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. 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.
