Q: Your new album Nightlight is a masterpiece. How do you make such a great sounding record in a home studio? Can you offer a glimpse into your recording process and perhaps gear that you prefer.

A: Hi Frank, Thank you for your very kind assessment of Night Light! As to recording in my home studio, I've taken some recording workshop classes, read up on different aspects of it, and have asked pro engineers about tips and tricks. From an equipment standpoint, the best advice I got was to buy the best possible interface within budget. I use an Apogee Duet, which converts analog to digital extremely well. For someone like me who records alone, I only need the two inputs for mic and line. The other thing I picked up was Ozone mastering software, which made a huge difference. I only use Shure SM 57 and 58 mics! Finally, flat response (or "neutral response") headphones for monitoring are a must, because you hear the real signal without any "shaping". More than anything, though, I think the key is to write the best possible songs, and work in an environment that you enjoy and find comfortable. By creating in a space that suits you, and capturing good signal, you're going to have good tracks with which to work. From there, you can mix and master at a pace that suits you. Thanks for asking! Tom
