MT: Which DAW?
I use Logic X now. I started playing around with Logic 8 back in 2008 and then moved on to 9. I am a solid user of Logic X now, and I use it because I can be fast and efficient by knowing most of everything I need on the go.
MT: Favourite gear?
My Apollo Quad Core interfaces – so easy to use. Anything I track sounds lovely and crisp and the preamps inside give a nice definition from the get-go.
MT: How often do you use it?
Sometimes it could be the whole week and sometimes twice a week.
MT: Whats next on your gear shopping list?
A 2TB SSD, to give the whole system a brand-new life and more speed.
MT: Dream gear?
A Neve Custom Series 75 console – a good combo of modern and retro.
MT: Any advice?
Analyse what you need, buy within a budget and make the most of your gear. Once your ears are in need of something, sell the old stuff to buy a better version. Be curious: listen to music, old or new but something you’ve never heard of before.
