Interview with ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I just got done with an stoner rock album for Spillage and I'm currently working on a funk-rock album from a band from Belarus.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Digital. The main reasons are cost and convenience. Creating music is hard enough, no sense making it harder and more expensive than it needs to be. Mind you, I do use a lot of emulations of analog gear.

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

  6. A: I started as a musician, and somehow ended up dealing with our PA. Eventually we started renting the PA with me running sound. Then bands started asking me to record them. After 10 years of doing that off and on, I opened up a studio.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: Thick and agressive.

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

  10. A: Pay attention to gain staging.

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

  12. A: Impact and size

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

  14. A: I bring the tracks up to see what I have, then start making things bigger, beginning with the drums and bass. The rhythm section is what I build the rest of the song on.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: I run Nuendo with UAD and Waves plugins. I also have outboard effects processors and compressors.

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

  18. A: Bob Rock is one of the guys i look up to.

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

  20. A: Mixing songs from tracks my clients recorded
