Where The Music Is Made: Evgeny Kiselevich

What is your favourite mic?
Oktava MK-012-20 Set for recording of acoustic guitars and Neumann/Gefell UM 57 for vocals.

What is your favourite pre amp?
For a long time I used TL Audio Ivory 5051, but lately I'm happy with RME Babyface onboard preamp.

What is your favourite sample library?
Most of my tracks are based on a guitar sound so I'm using samples primarily for programming drums. My go-to libraries for this purpose are SSD4 by Steven Slate, Transfuser by AiR and DM-307 by Heavyocity.

Over the past 15 years, I've changed country of residence four times. Every few years, my setup and the workplace changed from recording studios to corners in the living rooms. And I came to the conclusion that knowledge and experience are more important than hardware. Over the years, I have not changed my only favorite guitar, it's an old Jedson Telecaster made in Japan. I use Pro Tools 11, Sennheiser HD 600 headphones and Focal monitors.
