Interview with Marcus A

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

  2. A: Do not record to hot signals! If there is distortion printed to the track it´s almost impossible to rescue a great take. And with todays recording equipment there is no need to record to hot cause the noise floor is so ridiculously low these days.

  3. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  4. A: Soul, Pop, Rock, Country

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: I´m time efficient, in a good way.

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

  8. A: My taste and my preferences. But above all, Energy!

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

  10. A: If I´m working locally I sit down with the band in their rehearsal space before every recording to get a sense of what they are trying to achieve sonically. Then listen to them play to get a sense of how much heavy lifting I´m required to do. I believe that communication is vital in all scenarios, so when I´m doing online stuff I want as much feedback as humanly possible during the entire process.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I´m 100% in the box when I´m mixing. When I´m recording I use Neumann mics, Neve Preamps, Urei compressors and a lot of other stuff.

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

  14. A: Well, there are a lot of them! To name a few without any particular order: Simon Phillips, Andrew Scheps, Chris Lord Alge, Michael Brauer, Greg Wells.

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

  16. A: It really depends, one day I can be tracking drums for an upcoming album release and another I can be sitting and mixing someones bedroom recorded Single or EP. Typically it´s the word of mouth that musicians, publishers and other producers have worked with me in the past and enjoyed it.
