Interview with David Perotti - Elmsound
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: at the moment: Vocal recording/mixing for a client, Drum Tracks for my original band
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Analog can be utilized in the instrument tracking phase, not only to reduce CPU overload, but to give your instruments an "attitude" for the song. Digital is great in the "mixing" stage to clean up bad frequencies and meld instrument tracks together sonically and creatively.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Everything from Jazz to Rock to Electronica
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: the intended "feel" and "attitude" the song needs for success! ...This comes from listening to the audio in multiple playback media and reference tracks.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Correct gain staging starts the mixing process. Then faders for instrument levels, and then adding the sonic magic (if needed) thru plugins, automation that best suit the sound and feel of the song.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing audio files - making them gel into one unified music track. Recording instruments of all types - being sure the mic positioning is the most ideal for best audio quality
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: About 7 years ago, I began recording everything from my bands, to see what we sound like primarily and then it molded into the sheer desire for getting great audio representations of my music and others music, thru proper training, test-driving, and experience.....It's been quite the journey so far!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Applying all the small details to the sonic landscape that make the track shine!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is simple but effective - It's all in the way you mix the song, no extravagant bells and whistles, just the tools that make great sounding songs and records. I use presonus monitors, mixers, and DAWs. Plugins from waves, nomad factory, izotope, and presonus.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am in love with the work and practices from the greats like Dave Pensado, Ronin Chris Murphy, Chris Lorde Alge, and Eddie Kramer, to name just a few!
