I would definitely say that my workflow approach has changed a lot in the past two years. When I decided to move from Milan to Berlin, my intentions were to mainly carry on working with my clients in Italy. I still own a traditional recording studio in Milan, I use it almost every month, but after many years of work as a producer and mixing engineer, I began experimenting with different ways to do mixes.
In Berlin I started doing ‘online’ mixing, in the box, with my laptop, Pro Tools 11 and several plug ins. After more than a year, I realized that I wanted to finalize my mixes in different studios, to add ‘colour’ to tracks. I was missing the feeling of touching knobs and faders, and the mixes sounded too flat for my taste. Anyway, ‘ITB’ working has the big advantage to let you recall mixes instantly, and most of all, you’re no longer forced to complete the job in one day or two. Now that I’ve got more time to work, that possibility is very important for me. After many researches, I was told about a USB audio interface with 32 I/O for a very interesting price and a great sound, and that was what I was looking for — The Orion 32.
