EQ: Do you have some whacky effect you use behind closed doors?
JCR: A broken Roland SRE-555 echo. The reverb is so weird. I find myself using it on guitars and even backing vocals.
EQ: Do you remember any particular effect on a recording you’ve heard that changed your life?
JCR: Maybe when I heard the first gated reverb from an SPX, I was sure that I would quit my job soon, it sounded so bad. . . .
EQ: What’s your favorite hangout after a mix?
JCR: Is this a question to know if sound engineers are really alcoholics?
