I'm the main engineer at a fantastic facility called The Gradwell House which has a BEAUTIFUL 1200 square foot studio loaded with an SSL6000E, loads of outboard, a massive live room and tons of mics to capture it.

Interview with Matt Weber Music
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is a 2600 Square Foot multi room facility called The Gradwell House. The center piece is a 1982 SSL 6000E large format recording console surrounded by outboard gear like API pre amps, Neve, Retro Sta Level, Tube Tech CL1B, LA2A, Distressors, 1176's etc. We also have an amazing mic collection consisting of microphones like Neumann KM86's U47's, U87's, Royer 121's, 122's, AEA R88, R84, R44, KU5A, KU4, Sony C37, C38, RCA BK5 to name a handful. We also have a HUGE beautiful live room with solid hickory floors, and plenty of space for that larger than life drum sound. The live room also houses our 1970’s bechstein 7’ 4” Model C concert grand piano. As a contrast, the studio has a smaller drum room for a tighter sound if that's desired. In total, the studio has 11 rooms we can utilize for recording.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I typically like to sit with the artist and work out songs before even touching a microphone. The truth is in the song. If you don't have a great song, you have nothing. The sonics could be mind blowing-ly awesome, but if the songs a dud, you'll be stuck in the mud. Once the song is at its best, then I like to get the core of it recoded first. If its a rock band, that's the drum kit. Most rock recordings are based around a great drum sound. If its pop, I like to start with the core as well but this time we're talking about the key instrument which is the vocal and whatever instrument is accompanying it. Generally that might be an acoustic guitar or piano to start.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Thomas Dybdahl has been a huge musical inspiration lately. His productions are always spot on, which brings me to my next point/ inspiration. Tchad Blake. Tchad in my opinion, is the best mixer in the game. I don't think I've ever heard a bad mix from Tchad. Just listen to "All These Things" by Thomas Dybdahl. It's perfect.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I primarily provide recording, production and mixing services for my clients. I do how ever often provide drum parts, bass guitar parts and guitar parts for my clients as well.
