Lives for gear

Andy's room at Soundtracks is super minimal. Eventide 3000, Lex 480, spx 90, pcm 42. Very stock setups. A friend who has engineered for Andy a few times says it is all in a dat he carries around with a collection of drum samples he triggers from the 3000. They are ambiences, not direct mics, so the trigger delay doesn't matter as much. He finds a tone that blends and tunes the trigger delay time to sync up well. That why his kicks and snares feel like they are roomy but tight. No verb to cloud things up, just save them for special fx on gtrs and vox.
