Interview with Peter Waterman
Q: Analog or digital and why?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise you'll be happy by the end of the process. That's it.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: 15 years seems like a long time but I started out at Joss Stone's house at the age of 18 as a home studio guitarist and bassist. Fast forward to now, running this mobile studio aligns with my recording philosophy and I'm very proud to have worked this hard for the craft.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I am the cheerleader. When things go badly, I'll be there for you and will work hard to achieve what you want. When things go well, I'll actually clap and cheer and high five everyone in the room, letting them know that you just killed that take.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, Julien Baker, Soccer Mommy... I believe in their art form and I believe in their talent, decisions, their projects and their musical choices.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Having a light and dark microphone choice in your arsenal is a great way of mixing while recording. The more options, the better.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am a people person, I enjoy the process of meeting and working with new people all the time, even if it's through the internet on a remote mix. I'm a hard worker, I give everything to each project no matter how much time is required and I believe in the projects I take on.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Longcroft Recording mobile studio is already on its 3rd component upgrade due to early success. The studio comprises of a unique and carefully selected number of microphones, preamps, compressors and interfaces which combine to best counter the clinical nature of digital recording. To put it simply, Longcroft is a modern studio built on the foundations of classic tone.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Every project is different which is why I love doing this job. I always remain adaptable to the needs of the client, whether that's booking recording studios, booking different locations around the UK for recording, working with other mixing engineers or mastering engineers etc.
