Interview with Beyond The Studio Productions
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Mix of both. Nothing can beat analog right now for imaging and harmonic distortion. digital is getting extremely close, which makes it great for the benefits of recall, being able to change settings later, easy to copy sound settings to other tracks, ability to test out ideas on the fly (such as changing amps, compressors, etc), plugins are cheaper than hardware, and various other reasons.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have your tracks and files organized and labeled appropriately if you are sending me a session.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: If I was on a desert island i would likely be doing mixing in headphones as outside acoustics probably suck. So a Macbook pro, Apollo Twin quad (for plugins), Antelope Zen Tour (great converters/clock/plugins), Distressor, and beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro Professional Headphones.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been doing audio since 1998 when i experimented and recorded my own compositions. After college I went to SAE in NY in 2007 to gain more experience and knowledge on large format consoles. Afterwards I pursued a career in live sound for a couple of years, which wasn't for me. Started my own home studio for my own music. In 2012 I moved to LA where I have been building my client base a lot faster and have had many repeat customers.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Relaxed, focused, and hard working.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: During recording I bring out and capture the emotions the artist wants to convey. During mixing I give the song space and clarity to reflect and enhance the emotions the artist is conveying in the recording.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Producers/engineers i admire are Warren Huart, Michael White, Glenn Fricker, and Jim Morris.
