It’s been a long time coming, and we finally have Dan Korneff back to talk dealing with being your own worst enemy, analog setups, and knowing your gear inside and out.
Dan is the definition of renaissance man when it comes to audio. Not only is he a mastermind when it comes to production, but he’s also hands on with creating hardware and plugins. He’s truly inspirational for anyone looking to embody the entrepreneurial spirit.
“At a certain point, you just have to be happy with what you’re doing, and not really care about what anybody else says or what anyone else is doing. Just live in the moment and make whatever you’re working on currently the best thing you’ve ever done.” – Dan Korneff
