Interview with John Micensky (aka b.lake)

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

  2. A: Years of experience as an instrumentalist and songwriter.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I work at the studio Ohmstead, which has a lot of the analog gear that I listed (actually more than I listed, but the character count on that form held me back.) I typically do recording and mastering work at Ohmstead. I get most of my mixing done on my home setup where I have Barefoot Footprint02's, the complete UAD plugin suite, and many other plugins. I prefer a hybrid mixing setup where I can utilize analog and digital technology to achieve a great mix.

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

  6. A: I do a lot of recording & mixing for my music clients - with the ocassional drumming on the song as well. For game/film clients - I have the most experience sound designing and dialogue editing.
