Interview with Permanent Youth Recording Co.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. They both bring things to the table. I tend to use digital more because I like being able to be portable.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That we make a lot of money.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't assume anything. Ask questions. Musicians not familiar with the recording process tend to make a lot of assumptions in my experience.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Live. I try to use my DAW more like tape and get the best performance I can out of a band.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't overuse compression.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Fairly simple "in-the-box" type setup, making it very portable. MacBook Pro maxed out specs running to a Tascam US-16x08 interface. I use two modded TPS II dual channel mic pres along with it. My DAW is Logic Pro.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mainly, we're involved in live band production for demos, EPs, and full length albums.
