1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started dabbling in music in high school, sang in a punk rock band (singing loosely defined here) and also took some piano lessons.

2. What training have you had?

I have had no formal training in music or engineering--with the exception of a brief stint of piano lessons. That said, I have been a highly motivated pursuer of knowledge, reading books and manuals, and testing out concepts in my own compositions. As an assistant, I was lucky enough to work at A&M studios, a place full of talented people and opportunity.

3. When did you get into recording?

I started recording in 1994 at A&M, using primarily analog tape (Studer A-800's) along with a smattering of digital such as Sony 3348 and Mitsubishi 32 track. I found DA-88's to be useful as well and adopted them as soon as they came out. Pro Tools turned up in the late 90's and I jumped in when the Mix systems came out, that was 1999 I think. I would use Vision as a sequencer and Pro Tools 3 as the DAW, then sync these up. I found DAW based recording to very liberating on a production level; I could show up anywhere with my rig and record anything, with easy access to all previous work. Seems tame now, but the idea of having 64 tracks be portable was quite something.

4. People you have worked with/for?

Rolling Stones
Perry Farrell
Kris Kristofferson
Ziggy Marley
Al Green
Supreme Beings of Leisure
Counting Crows
Sheryl Crow
Hillary Duff
Jack Johnson
Paul Simon
Willie Nelson
Was Not Was

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I am good at training because I learned record making largely on my own but at a high level. I had to make sense of the process for myself and this helps me make sense of it for others. I learned by figuring out which things are important and which are ancillary--and this is very important--how to operate in a studio environment in such a way where not only the process is maximized for the musicians, but also for the record-makers (us).

Studio Secrets with Krish Sharma is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensible, practical and Passionate. This tutorial, gives a greater appreciation for the practical methods of mic set up, recording, tracking & mixing. I like the move from high end studio to project studio set up. Can't wait to apply some new ideas in my own studio. Krish's passion for the craft is infectious. Highly recommend.
