Interview with David Dobo

  1. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  2. A: How much do my services cost? And because I treat every song as unique so definitely varies; therefore, my answer is always to let's have a chat about the goals and the budget so that we are on common ground.

  3. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  4. A: What is your goal? What is your vision?

  5. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  6. A: Suppose I could work with Fab Dupont, Charlie Puth, and Lenny Kravitz. Well, that would be a dream session of mine for sure because they all bring a different flavour to the table.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: I like to deliver open, wide, expensive punchy-sounding mixes. But I usually adopt and serve my client's vision rather than telling my ideas about what it should sound like.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: I am open to everything. There is not a type of music that I work on. If I had chosen a genre that I am most specialised in, I'd say pop.

  11. Q: What's your typical work process?

  12. A: I have a quick workflow for recording duo or vocal + backing track. For mixing, I usually do 48hour turn arounds and give three free revisions.

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: Vocal recordings, mixing and mastering if desired.

  15. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  16. A: I always ensure your vision of the song comes out through those speakers as you imagined.

  17. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  18. A: Always have a concrete vision of how the thing should sound before you pull up a fader or turn knobs.

  19. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  20. A: These days the tech can authentically replicate that analogue vibe. Digital is faster and cheaper. But I'd probably buy those expensive outboard gears if I had all the money in the world. So my final words are, "Analog is king, and digital is a nice extension of enhancement."

  21. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  22. A: One of the biggest misconceptions is when the client is unaware that I play multiple instruments, can mix and master on the fly and had been in their shoes even before I hit the record button.

  23. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  24. A: It depends on whether I am the mixing, mastering, or recording engineer. With that said, having those perspectives, I always look at the bigger picture. Mainly I try my best to be as raw to the song as possible while drilling down on the commercial/evergreen playlists to put it to the test of time.

  25. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  26. A: Get it right at the source, and know your songs well.

  27. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  28. A: Laptop, ANC headphone, soundcard, midi Keys and a condenser microphone.

  29. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  30. A: My career path has been interesting; it's always been the play between Technology and Music regarding how much I can serve my music client. I've been doing music production since 2011.

  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: Computer: 13inch MacBook Pro (2019) Display: LG UltraFine 4K 32UN880-B Audio Interface: Presonus AudioBox iTwo interface. Speaker: iLoud Micro Monitor Mics: AKG P100 large condenser + the t.bone SC 140 small condenser Keys: Studio Logic SL88 Studio + M-Audio Code 61 Guitars: Yamaha FG830 NT + Samick Greg Bennett Malibu MB-50 MBM

  33. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  34. A: Music, Podcasts, Children's songs

  35. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  36. A: Tom DuPree III

  37. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  38. A: Not going to lie; I always forget that I am working because I enjoy the process more than anything.

  39. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  40. A: The two Spotify singles that I've put out, which I've produced, mixed and mastered in my home studio. It gave me a huge boost of confidence and seeing people’s reactions for the first time. I will carry that experience with me forever.

  41. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  42. A: I have great understanding in listening and identifying the musical taste and achieve the desired sound.

  43. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  44. A: Fab Dupont, Andrew Scheps, Mick Guzauski, Luca Pretolesi, Dave Pensado, Ben Lindell, Ryan West, Jordan Criddle, Joe Gilder, Graham Cochrane
