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

  36. A: First I play through the song multiple times and take notes on any aspects I want to change. After my first initial sweep, I then go through multiple playbacks and adjust until the audio has no elements that are unsatisfactory. Then I begin additive measures. I then boost appealing frequencies, increase clarity with compression, and begin widening the the stereo field. Afterwards I guarantee you will notice a huge difference in the audio quality, clarity, and over-all appeal of your track/tracks.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I Have Krk Rockit 8's aligned perfectly with acoustic treatment placed accordingly throughout the room for an environment with no false reverberation or frequency build up.
