  14. A: Knowledge of how a song feels in context to its instrumentation and lyrics and also knowing when the song is done.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: I have a hybrid mix system, where I start the mix in Pro Tools HD. I am using an Antelope Orion[audio interface], then to a 500 series rack mount where I have outboard compressors and Eq's, routed into a SSL six mixer. From the SSL Bus compressor the audio goes through a Burl ADC B2 Bomber[converter] then to a RME ADI Pro-FS2 [converter/interface]. I am monitoring through a pair of Yamaha NS-10's, Dynaudio LYD48's, and a single Avantone mix cube. I also have synth keyboards and drum machines for production and many plugins to aid in enhancing audio.

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

  26. A: I listen to the song maybe 5-7 times first and understand what the artist is presenting then I identify the strong and weak points of the song and try to make the weak parts better. I reference other songs that are close in style so I can make sure the levels are accurate and then I begin to stem the audio through my mixer so I can level the song. I compress and eq as needed then I add the sweet stuff like reverb and harmonizers to make the records glue together sonically.

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

  28. A: I am inspired by great engineers Bruce Swedien, Dr. Dre, Tony Maserati, and great Producers like Quincy Jones.
