Interview with CoCo Carmel

  1. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  2. A: Allow time for a great product rather than speed and less quality.

  4. A: Saxophone, guitar, Great Mic, Tape recorder...

  5. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I have a Protools setup with little outboard gear. I use a Manley VoxBox for vocals and Sax. I do try to keep things to a minimum because it's not so much the gear but what you do. I use Yamaha speakers, I am still on my 003 Rack which I happen to love. I have had tons of experience with incredible people in the business and generally my generation all feel the same. We don't use auto tune...take more time for the best quality. No frills...just the real deal.

  16. A: The great producers of the day (1970s) Quincy Jones people like that. I really love quality and a great sound.
