Andover chats with Jack Douglas, Multi-Platinum Music Producer

Jack is a multi-platinum music producer, mixer, recording engineer, arranger and composer. His credits include work on iconic albums, many of which are listed in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

After purchasing a Model-One system, we discovered who Jack was, and found him to be fount of knowledge about music production, equipment, vinyl and more. James DiPaolo (Andover Audio Marketing Director) interviewed Jack to share his story with our community.

Jack shares his knowledge about audio formats, test vinyl pressing (which Jack plays on his Model-One system), mono vs. stereo, mixing and more.

"I had a test pressing of Double Fantasy...[on the Model-One] it sounded like the mix. And that's most important to me. That it represented the mix perfectly. You can't really ask for more than that."
- Jack Douglas

We look forward to doing more videos of this sort. Let us know what you enjoyed in the comments!
