With his first music released at age 14, Tim Engelhardt has gone on to consistently release on some of the most respected labels in the industry, playing his music out around the world.
Today Tim talks about his unique journey, what he embraces in his productions, and his process of discovery and learning, exploring the possibilities of the tools available…
“there’s a tendency for a lot of people to almost discount the stock plugins or devices…just an exploration of the presets can be quite mind-blowing sometimes”
The benefits of bringing something new into your workflow whilst minimising the risks of interrupting your creative flow…
“What’s really important for me is that there is not that big of a learning curve. So it is very immediate. I don’t have to do a lot to make it sound great.”
Deciding what to let go of for the greater good of the record…
“you don’t necessarily need to add things, you can also take things away…it’s easy to overcomplicate…there’s a time to bring things in and a time when there isn’t”
We deep dive into his workflow from the studio to the clubs to the label, the necessity of deadlines to get motivated to finish…
…and the power of saying no; reserving your creative energy for things that you love and that really inspire you.
