    Professional, creative, fast, and reliable. Very pleasant communication served with some good humor, so there's no stress involved. Cycle Studio has provided creative solutions over and over again, and proved to be one less thing to worry about when completing our very demanding and complex project.

Interview with Cycle Studio Zagreb

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both. Analog for color, attitude, and non-linearity. Digital for precision, maneuverability, and total recall. With today's technology, it's mad to pick sides.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: The feeling of squeezing the best out of an artist, song or project.

  5. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  6. A: That it's one-sided work. The only way to achieve great results is to have a good feedback cycle with the client.

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: Akai S900 because its 12bit converters make drums sound like nothing else. My Revox tape because I love how it sounds when pushed a bit hot. My room because it's well treated and I know it like the back of my hand. No gear beats a good room.

  9. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  10. A: Equalization and leveling on small speakers, in mono, is gold for getting results that sound equally great on a mobile phone and on a big soundsystem.

  11. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  12. A: Projects greatly vary but we specialise in all kinds of house/techno music, soul, jazz, hip hop, trap and pop.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: Understanding what the project needs in order to reach the client's creative and technical vision.

  15. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  16. A: Engineering, arranging, and creative expertise gained through more than 20 years of active music involvement.

  17. Q: What's your typical work process?

  18. A: First thing is to review the material and get the client's impressions of it. It is important to understand the client's perspective on the current state of the material, and what is the ideal end result, in order to establish what needs to be done to bridge the two. The rest of the process is then fairly straightforward and basically consists of doing the necessary tasks to reach a result that is objectively great, and feels great to the client.

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: Hybrid combination of vintage processing gear/sources (such as Roland RS-101, Farfisa VIP61, Juno-106, Akai S900 sampler or Yamaha TX81Z), and modern digital plugins (such as the whole SSL suite), placed in a well acoustically treated room with 2 sets of reference speakers.

  21. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  22. A: Young Guru, Masters At Work, DJ Premier, Theo Parrish, Jeff Mills, Pete Rock, Questlove

  23. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  24. A: Mixing, mastering, and various additional things that need to be done for the project to reach its maximum potential, such as co-writing or additional arranging.
