How awesome it is, to have the possibility to ask my heroes questions about what we all love to do… Thanks for giving us this chance and your time!
I am working now for nearly 20 years in this industry. First as a professional musician and now mostly as a live and studio guy.
What I see more and more espacially in the semi-professional segment of this industrie is, that a lot of musicains don’t deliver in recording what we really need for a good mix. A lot of times, I end up in editing this mess, to get at least some good tracks for the mix.
I don’t know, if you guys also have these kind of problems from time to time, as you are working for sure mostly with really professional musicians, who deliver great.
A lot of times I am struggeling with this, because I recognized, that when I have to edit it a lot, it looses all mojo and I end up in overthinking the edit and invest A LOT OF hours in taking care of it.
When I see your mixing sessions, there are only really really clean tracks, perfect timings and so on, which is for sure, really important, for a good mix.
When you get a recording which isn’t good enough in point of timing and also dynamics - how much do you (or your assist) edit these tracks. Or do you give it back, and ask for a better recording? What is the most important thing for you, when it comes to editing, to get really good tracks to mix?
