Interview with Foster Ferrell
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: At my studio, I primarily record guitars and vocals, I always go to another studio for drums. I believe in a solid analog front-end, but love the versatility of digital as well. So, I have quite a few CAPI preamps and then some outboard EQ and compression. However, I also love UAD and often record through outboard pre's and UAD plugins together.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I primarily track guitars on satellite sessions for clients. They send me files, sometimes scratch tracks and sometimes the finished tracks except for guitars, and then I record guitars at my studio and send them my files.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The first album I ever produced was a full-length, live worship album for my home church. I was 19 at the time and still in school. I had grown up at this church and had gone from failing an audition to be on the worship team at 14 to producing their album, so it was a very humbling experience. I got to work with amazing people in the industry (Sean Moffitt, Joe Causey, Dan McNair), and to this day I am still very proud of the finished product!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog front-end, digital recording/storage. If you have a really solid analog signal chain going to record, it is going to sound great. The options that DAWs provide you with as far as editing and production are essential to making music efficiently in today's world.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working on a wide variety of music with a wide variety of people!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your end goal with this project? What story do you want to tell?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a fresh perspective. I've had the opportunity to work for many different producers in many different genres, and I love using all of these experiences to influence my current work.
