What are you working on at the moment?
I mainly do MASTERING and GHOST PRODUCTIONS
Analog or digital and why?
I would say both because we can achieve results with both analog and digital processing combined
analog synths I prefer for sure but there are many digital ones out there that work pretty good too
all depends on the type of music and sound you re looking for
for mastering as well I prefer analog processing even if there are great digital plug ins that will make the job too
What's your 'promise' to your clients?

What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
sometimes customers want an exact copy of a song and I answer them in order for the artist to break through the market the best advice is looking for originality rather than copying styles.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
depending on the work they need to request I will ask them about what kind of sound they are looking for and to understand their needs.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
I am very honest with customers and first of all I try to understand if I can satisfy their request, most of the time I will try to prepare a demo or a preview depending on the type of work he wants me to do for him either is MASTERING or MIXING or GHOST PRODUCING
