Interview with Rising Phoenix Studios
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I provide an alternative for making demos, EPs, and small records by providing tracking, mixing and mastering services as needed for those that are on a small budget.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Steve Albini, Jerry Finn, Chris Lord-Algae to name a few.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have 16 inputs through my Liquid Saffire 56 and Octopre Dynamic into Pro Tools. I also sometimes use a Motu 8pre, a Soundcraft Spiritfolio mixer, or various custom mic pres that come through the studio. I send my main mix via spdif to my Central Station, and monitor through my Adam A7s and a pair of Event 20/20s.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I try to work as I go, getting most of the basic editing done as I'm tracking, so by the time vocals are finished, I can focus on mixing and not have to go through and edit an entire song.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I love working under pressure, and I love finding unique solutions to unique problems.
