Interview with WessAudio

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

  2. A: Previously the projects I've worked on have begun with tracking the artist in the studio all the way through to the mixing and pre-mastering. That said, I love being a part of any chunk of the process that I can and usually find myself enjoying mixing the project most.

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

  4. A: I'm usually most impressed by artists and producers that work closely to communicate a cohesive vision in a project. When a singular vision can be realized through synthesizing an eclectic palette of influences in a way that is thoughtful and fresh, I think something special is bound to happen.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: On the software end, I've got Pro Tools 11 as my main DAW as well as Ableton and Logic. I've got the entire Soundtoys bundle, a few odds and ends from Waves, Melodyne, and the Komplete 11 instrument library. As far as hardware, I've got a great 1176 emulator from Warm Audio as well as a couple ace preamps.

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

  8. A: The thing I find most valuable about my input on the projects I work on is my ability to flesh out a song sonically without losing sight of what the song at its most stripped down is trying to say. Whether it's a pop tune or something instrumental, I feel like the central meaning/aesthetic of a project can be easily forgotten about under the bells and whistles of production. Keeping that vision alive can be a bit of an art.
