Interview with Mike Hillier
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Silly question.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Damon Albarn. He has brought so much to so many styles of music. From britpop, to hip-hop, and taking in grunge, folk, and even opera.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have three studio spaces. My own home mix/mastering setup, which is largely based around a UAD system, with a couple of choice bits of outboard. An SSL room with an SSL 4024E/G console and good-sized live room, and a Neve room with an ex-broadcast Neve V66, connected to a great vocal booth.
