My philosophy consists in supporting artist’s vision on his own songs adding my taste that gravitates in various musical genre. I have improved my sound after many years of experience, therefore I felt the need to have more colors in my hands rather than a standard console.
I mixed for about ten years (2007-2017) with my SSL9000J and after working with Michael Brauer, I have perfected a very complex multi-buss technique, managing the arrangement parts in submixed groups. Then I understood that having a modular system would be more powerful in my way of developing sound. Instead of being restricted to one predominant sound I could mix and match various sonic “flavors”. My new setting has a modern approach consisting in classic analog and state of the art digital technologies.
These unique custom mixer utilizes summing amps and analog mastering matrix to have a signal flow configuration with analog sum interspersed with dozens of analog outboard gear to combine pristine mastering quality tone and thick warm vintage sounds. The result is a sonic signature that has the best of analog tones with a minimal wiring and very low noise due to the highest sound quality.
