The Setup

My sound studio features heavily treated walls and ceiling to achieve "just right" acoustics.
Recording chain includes an AKG XLS II microphone, state-of-the-art Avalon M5 mono preamplifier feeding into a Focusrite audio interface to ProTools in a Mac-based system.

Various Waves plug-ins are typically used in my recording chain unless requested otherwise.
