“I think I’ve  been recording in over a 100 studios over the years and really been able to make up my mind about what I like and don’t like in a studio.
In my studio I focus a lot on atmosphere, the light, the colours….. It’s what I appreciate when I go somewhere myself.  Surroundings that brings out the best in people which is ultimately what we’re dealing with in a studio. Recording peoples performances. And of course it has to feel and sound great.”

“So I wanted the perfect recording chain. That’s why I use Apogee Ensemble. 
I have two Ensembles next to each other which I’ve connected. I used one at first but eventually I needed more channels but I still didn’t want a mixing desk. 
I also wanted to bring one of the Ensembles on tour with me occasionally so now  I just use two Ensembles which are connected and it works really well.” 
“After I built the studio in this church along side my analague synthesizers I’ve collected many old organs, pianos, a tape Mellotron and even a big church organ so I hardly ever use midi anymore. Therefor, recording the instruments is such a big part of my sound and the Apogee ensemble allows me to capture that sound in a great way.   I think I got my first Apogee Duet in 2007. Min brother bought for me. 
So I’ve used Apogee for a good 13 years now. Still works great for me!”
