Producer Profile: Scott Jacoby – Rise of the Anti-Specialist

View Single Page

Running an indie label right takes time, but for Jacoby it’s an essential component in the big picture. “I love the idea of writing, producing and mixing a tune – the logical extension of it is that I can also choose the artist and release the record,” he points out. “It’s been the hardest thing in my life, and the most rewarding. Anyone with an indie label will tell you it’s a labor of love, but I think those labors of love pay off for you.”

A Special Generalist

While the golden ring for many audio pros is to have A Room of Their Own, Jacoby has things firmly in check: the flexible splendor of Eusonia is strictly a means, and not an end.

“The studio is always just a vehicle,” he stresses. “My goal in having a studio is not to make money from it, but to have a place to work. Meanwhile, my goal in my career is to have a self-sustaining thing where I’m making music in one form or another.

“We work in an industry where specialists are rewarded,” he continues. “This person mixes records, she does top-line writing, he produces R&B, and so on. I want to be anti-that. I’m very comfortable going from making a hip hop record to a folk singer/songwriter soundtrack, or producing a record for two weeks and then going directly into mixing one.”

That versatile attitude leads direct to a common thread that’s more important to Scott Jacoby – who exudes positivity and professionalism in everything he does – than anything else. “I want to feel that I’m working with great people,” he says. “I don’t care if it’s independent artists or major label. I just try to go where it’s musical and good.”

Jacoby's Electronaut M63: "It's a high-end tube preamp which you can use super clean, or with heavy duty tube distortion. I’ll use it for vocals, or DI on a bass -- you get a lot of crunch in a  really analog way."
