new album Produced by Joe Chiccarelli "How did we get Here"
Studio in Portland and mixed 3 songs on Jim Mcgormans album.
key is to be a good listener. My Philosophy in the studio or mixing
comes from many years of being around producers, engineers and mixers
whom I have respected. You hear a great sound and 'lock it in.'
This generally satisfies most artists," says DeSisto. Marc
stays on top of his game by trying to stay true to himself under
all circumstances and first finds what the recording artist is looking
for. "It's always different from artist to artist and session
to session. I'm usually full of options when I'm engineering and
try not to get locked into anything. Also having a positive attitude
helps and being able to work around things, when technical situations
come up and they often do," says Marc. According to Marc it
helps to have the ability to build trust when you're working with
an artist for the first time. "For me, I must feel the mixes
before presenting it. You are creating your version of what the
artist had in mind when they wrote their song. Songs are sometimes
personal and to be able to capture it is an art and a thrill,"
updated my studio with Dangerous Audio's new monitoring section
- ST and SR for
5.1 mixing," says Marc of his place, Luke's Room
that offers a DAW set up with Pro tools HD3.
"I print to Tascam's High definition audio recorder, it also
has DSD capability, it is amazing.
I am fully equipped with an arsenal of plugins that work efficiently
and are sonically up to par. Luke's room also has a space for overdubs
- very quiet with hard wood floors. It is a warm and relaxed atmosphere,"
