10 Short Questions With Toby Green

1. What is the best part about being a producer?

-  The feeling when you’re really inspired for sure. Nothing beats that high feeling of having created something magical.


 2. How did it all start for you?

- My dad has been a musician for most of his life, and when I was about 6 years old he introduced me to playing the drums. I played the drums for about 5 years, until I on my 11th birthday received a copy of FL Studio 7. Been hooked ever since! My drum teacher wasn’t too happy, though...

3. What would you be doing now if it wasn't for music?

-  I would be studying biochemistry, always been fascinated by that.


4. Is talent, hard work, or the connections you make the most important factor for being successful?

- Hard work weighs the most, for sure. Talent is nice to have too, and of course connections as well. Buuuut - if you work hard enough, I’ll ENSURE you, you will find the connections eventually.

5. When do you usually make music?

In the early morning! Opposite of most producers I actually like to work when it’s bright. I’m not really a night-person, unless I’m in a club.


6. What is your favorite synthesizer? Which one do you use most in your productions?

- Sylenth1! The beauty of this thing lies in its simplicity. It encourages songwriting and not 'nerding around', which is always a plus in my book!  Serum wins if we’re talking sounddesign though.


7. Do you work on mastering/mixing by yourself? Favorite Compressor/ Limiter/Maximizer ?

- Most of the time, I do it myself yes! I use the Fabfilter Pro-C and Pro-L plugins a lot.

8. What was the best reaction you've gotten when a fan got to meet you?

-   It’s always a joy to take pictures with fans! People are generally awesome.

9. How did you discover Vandalism?

- Through my producer buddies.

10. What makes you choose Vandalism over other competitors?

 - Consistency and how easily the presets fits in a mix. A big help for fast, creative work flow!
