On the Road

Dubielak, Tommy

Mix;Apr2004, Vol. 28 Issue 5, p84
The article presents an interview of performer "Tommy Rat." Perhaps better known in the industry as "Tommy Rat" or "Tommy Magnum," Tommy Dubielak has mixed numerous acts including performers Debbie Gibson, Bobby Brown, Color Me Badd, The Offspring and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. On his recent tour with Washington Rockers MxPx, he did the whole tour of two thousand to four thousand venues on 18 inputs. He did not use much compression or any gates, as the whole idea of MxPx is to evoke a raw, garage sound.
