What makes a sound engineer a good engineer? So for us, a sound ma must become part of the band when we enter the studio. He should feel and understand our message and approach. He should know where we are coming from – music-wise and on a personal level. At the same time, he should interpret what we deliver and show us his thoughts about it. The ability to add something to our art without changing its essence is another key capability – and of course total control over his craft. All of this is Timo.
