I'm based in China, currently in Chengdu but I will move (again) soon to Shanghai.
Bio : Been a guitar player for 20 years now, always have been involved in bands back to France. I used to do live recordings and mixing for my band, but also for other bands.
I always did recording and mixing as a hobby, but I recently switched to full time music.
Not being able to settle down in one place (I followed my wife in her new job), I started to work only with a mobile rig. I carry my rig around to record either live performances or bands in their own environment like rehearsal rooms, and I mix in my home studio.
I am using 16 XLR split cables to separate the FOH from the recording.
DAW of choice : Pro Tools, Logic Pro X (for songwriting and virtual instruments)
Genres : Primarily rock and blues. I just love that. But I'm always keen to explore new genres.
Favorite Plugins : Impressed by Butch Vig Vocals, MV2, Two-Notes Wall Of Sound
Guitar Preamps :
- Two-Notes Le Clean (American type), Le Crunch (British type), Le Bass.
- Speaker simulation : Two-Notes Torpedo C.A.B.
---> I'm a big fan of Two-Notes. Faulty amp, venue too hard to handle, or for a band with no good amps.
Apple MacBook Pro with a 27 inches external monitor
Equipment I have my eyes on :
- Universal Audio Apollo X8p
- Presonus Studio Live or equivalent
- Outboard 1176, LA2A, 1073
Something special about my place, well not really. I'm always trying to take the best out of the place I can have currently since we're moving a lot these days.
Fortunately next stop will be the last one 😀
