This conversation with mixing engineer Tony Maserati is a little different from most of the other interviews I have done on the podcast. It is mostly just Tony and me having a very informal chat about the things that are important to us, both in our professional lives, but also in life in general.
If you want to see the impressive list of artists that Tony has worked with in his career, go to tonymaserati.com
You will see artists ranging from James Brown to David Bowie, Queen Latifa to Beyonce to Lady Gaga, that Tony has recorded, produced, or mixed.
He is best known as a go-to mixer at the highest levels in the music business. Tony is also noted for his appearances on Mix With the Masters.
Our conversation is unstructured, and a bit longer than most of the podcast episodes, so you might want to check out specific sections, like:
03:17 Moving back to Upstate NY from LA and living in the country
22:46 Recording today with remote musicians adding parts
26:43 Recording and mixing are two different skills
39:47 What problems Tony finds in the tracks he is sent to mix
43:40 Advice for people who want to get into the recording/mixing business
58:24 Tony’s approach to mixing
