Interview with LotusKey
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on a joint project with an my brother.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will put my best ear to every track sent to me and give the best final mix and master possible.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: My favorite part of my job is seeing how someone reacts to the end product. I love the process of making music and music in general but if it wasn't for the reaction of the person hearing that final mix and loving it I would most likely keep all my music to myself.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: When ever I record someone they feel they should get the best mix and the best sounding record in that same session.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Get the BEST recording you can find. The better the original recording the better the final product will be in the end.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take my MacBook, a UA Apollo twin, a MPK 249, Sony C-800 Microphone, and solar panel electric
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My original career path was just to be an audio engineer but I have found the urge to become an artist and producer since then. I have been learning since my freshman year of high school, so about 6 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is unorthodox. I go by what sound and feels good. What ever pops into my head to try, I try it, and if it works I keep it if not its on to something better.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Travis Scott. His work ethic is amazing and I love the sound he brings to each track he touches, whether he it is a song he has vocals on or just his production.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Gain staging is always key. Gain staging and levels is going to get you the furthest with your mixes. Everything else is to polish what you have but if the gain staging and levels aren't good the mix isn't going to sound great.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I am always thinking about working so I wake up, go into my studio, get organized, and create or listen to what I have to work on for the day. I start
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a Mac mini with a Roland VS-100 interface. Presonus eris 5 studio monitors. I run my recording and mixing sessions on Pro Tools. I make beats on Logic Pro X, Studio One, and MPC Software.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My greatest inspiration comes from a lot of artists, producers, and engineers. I love Travis Scott's over-all song production for singles and albums. I love the content with-in Kid Cudi's lyrics. I love Mike Dean's unorthodox ways of mixing to what sounds good and not to what is technically 'correct'.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do for clients is newer age rap. The kind with auto-tune a lot of other effects (reverb, delays, etc)
