First Impressions of Earth, Compressors, & EQ’s.

Hey Gordon.

Thanks for doing this Q&A. Your work with The Strokes is literally the most important educational tool in my production career. I have learned and constantly learn new things and reference the material on a weekly basis. I could go on and on. Thanks for all your work.

I have just a few questions for you.

1. What is the story with First Impressions of Earth? How involved were you with the process and what was your experience with making that record?
2. Any sort of go to mix bus or drum bus or channel compressors in general used throughout the records that you could elaborate on?
3. What are you favorite types of EQ’s to reach for? Any areas you find yourself preferring to cut and or boost on certain sources?

Thanks so much Gordon!
