Chris Fogel: Ghostbusters, The Gemini II, and More

Chris Fogel is a producer, engineer, and mixer with recordings under his belt from artists including Alanis Morissette, Aerosmith, Sheryl Crow, and Childish Gambino. But his real successes in the last several years have come from film score engineering and mixing, with titles including The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Fruitvale Station.

Over the last year, Fogel has been working on Spy, Creed, Halo 5: Guardians, and - most recently - GhostbustersZoolander 2, and Central Intelligence. He was kind enough to send us through some photos from these scoring sessions, as he's been a Gemini II user for several years now, and recently acquired a pair of T2 condensers for his percussion needs.

"[The Gemini II] is the best timpani mic I've ever used, and I typically used well-maintained 47s or 49s. Really great."


"The T2s sounded exactly like I hoped they would. Punch and beef on toms was the number one criteria, and they delivered. Just slight EQing in my API 560s and they were perfect."
