Interview with Tresto

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both are essential!

  3. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  4. A: Go with your gut feeling...

  5. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  6. A: A powerful computer, an AKG 414 (multipurpose) mic, good interface, good mic pre, comfortable chair.

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: I've been a working drummer/percussionist, band manager, band leader and music educator for my adult life When I was in the studio tracking drums for various sessions. I was typically the 1st person at the studio and the last to leave. This due to my willingness to learn as much as I could about recording and producing music. I worked for years to continue this passion and have been able to build a modest studio and continue to make a living out of music.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: Hmmmm... an organised mixed bag.

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: The next artist that has something special!

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Capture the sounds you are going for. Just because we can edit and manipulate everything nowadays, it's common to think "we can fix that later".

  16. A: Soulful, funky, groove or beat based tracks. From down tempo to funky house.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

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

  20. A: My ears are I guess everyones best asset for music.

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

  22. A: Find a vibe in a groove, work out some options for changes. Melodic ideas on top. Structure. Lyrics/topline. Build sonic palate with soft instruments and track live elements.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: I have a broad selection of outboard equipment including SSL, Neve, Avalon, Universal Audio and API. Some great vintage reverb/delay units including Ursa Space Station and Roland RE-201. Vintage Rhodes, Clavinet, Vocoder Roland SH2 & Juno 60 and various modern synths including Moog. I have a solid mic cabinet with plenty of options for Vocals, Horns, Percussion, Drums and cabinets. 2 isolated tracking rooms and a main multipurpose mix room.

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

  26. A: Kaytranada, Young Franco, Josh Gudwin, Ian Kirkpatrick
