Re: Favorite Producer?
Not sure if he's my favorite, but one of my favorites is Steve Albini...not only because he's produced some great albums from great artists (Nirvana, The Jesus Lizard, Pixies, Helmet, Don Caballero, and many more), but because of his old-school, minimalist recording philosophy. Many other producers spend so much time getting "the perfect sound" for each instrument, and then take days to get "the perfect take" for each song. Not Steve Albini. He just sticks the band in a room with some mics. If the band sounds good in the room, then the recording will sound good.
