Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Dokken, Alice Cooper, etc.

I have used an original analog Trident A-Range channel strip, so I've been able to compare the hardware to the plug-in and there's just no difference.

The one thing I don't like about bedroom recordings is that they're made in a bedroom! I like to have the whole band playing together where you get the vibe and togetherness.

Tonelux Tilt—it's very smooth and just a very good idea for an equalizer.

A few years ago I built a new studio from the ground up to my specifications, completely based on how I want to work and how I think it should all look.

I do a lot pure mix jobs of other people's recordings, but I've never done it the other way around, me recording and someone else mixing. It would just feel very weird to me.

It's important being able to disconnect from the technological side of things and just focus on the music and work with the band. That's what I'm there for.

There is always the debate if plug-ins sound close to the original. With the Softube Dyna-mite I hear absolutely no difference, those guys nailed it.
