Andrew Scheps

Andrew Scheps is a music producer, mixing engineer and record label owner based in the United Kingdom. He has received Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album for his work on Red Hot Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium, Album Of The Year for Adele's 21, and also Best Reggae Album for Ziggy Marley's Fly Rasta.

Andrew started as a musician, but found that what he enjoyed most was working behind the scenes. This led him to study recording at the University of Miami. After graduating, he spent some time working for Synclavier, and then on the road with Stevie Wonder (as a keyboard tech) and Michael Jackson (mixing live sound). But he found his home in the studio, and he honed his craft working for producers such as Rob Cavallo, Don Was and Rick Rubin.

Andrew collaborated with Waves in order to create his own line of plug-ins which include the Scheps 73 EQ and the Scheps Parallel Particles.

Andrew is one of the best known mixing engineers in the world, well-known for his Rear Bus mixing techniques that he developed working on his 64 input Neve 8068 console and his love for distortion of any kind. If you are watching pureMix videos you will see that he managed to carry his analog sound signature over to a fully portable digital rig. These days, Andrew mixes completely In The Box as it allows him much greater flexibility and the ability to work on several project simultaneously.

I wish I could have been in the room with those 2 gentlemen. Wait, here with my phone, with earbuds, havin’ a slice of pizza in my studio’s kitchen, I almost was. It really is the next best thing to being there. Now, with the same amount of time and money I use to spend on Netflix, I get an education. That is pretty awsome. Those interviews are just as inspiring and educational as watching any master tweaking a compressor. Keep up the good work. You truly are making a difference in people’s life. Merci beaucoup

For what it is worth, Synology has a optional Package Cloud Station Shared Sync that I use to synchronize folders between two synology devices. I have one at my wife's work location which I manage as well. This allows multi site backup as well in the same town.

Love my Synology. One 1819+ at home and a 916+ at a friend's house for offsite backup.
