Toolbox

 

I’m often asked about my tools for producing and mixing. I’ve got a fairly simple setup but very happy with it. I mix entirely in the box due to time/cost effectiveness. If you're curious and/or a potential client wanting to know if I have specific gear or software for your project, here is a list: 

DIGITAL AUDIO WORKSTATIONS (DAW)

Steinberg Cubase Pro 9 w/Vienna Ensemble Pro 6
Ableton Live 9 Suite
Adobe Audition CC 

I use Cubase for film composing, music production and mixing on everything from pop to orchestral along with Vienna Ensemble Pro for hosting orchestral instruments. Also use Ableton Live for live performance and Adobe Audition CC for batch audio processing.
