Interview with Mixed By Hill
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Write me a message, don't hesitate on this. Let's talk and see what we can do with your music. Can't wait to start to work!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Hip-Hop and Electronica, recently a lot of R'n'B, trap and huge variety of Urban Music Style.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity and originality. I love experiment, go one step forward, I love be unique, trying to create my signature sound. I love to give mojo and vibe to my clients songs.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First of all I listen the track, with a fresh ears. Trying to understand which kind of feeling the artist wants to explain and how I can help to achieve it. Second, I spend a lot of time cleaning the project and making little tweaks on the volume, panning to get a great balance between the tracks. Then is when the magic starts.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio SetUp is very minimal, I love the "Less is More" as a way of work. I have high end audio converters from Apogee and Adam and Avantone Monitors. When I mix I love to make the cirurgical work with digital EQ's and compressors (I used to work with FabFilter, Waves and UAD) because it's easier to me get better detailed results. I use hardware when I work on groups and mix buss to get the mojo and the vibe. I use 1176 clone on drums, Fairchild on the mixbus also PullTec and a SSL Compressor Clone, I use Millenia Preamps to enhance almost every VST Intrument that I have. My mastering Chain are featured by Dangerous Audio EQ, Distopik Limiters, Manley EQ's, Fairchild Clone Compressor and Digital Stereo Imagers like Ozone or multiband enhancers like Gullfoss from SoundTheory.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm producing and engineering couple of works. One album by Deepdayz and other by BlueMay.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: "Studio A" mostly analog, on the analog world you have more expenses and the workflow is a little bit more complex, this is why my work on the "Studio A" is more expensive. "Studio B" it's all about digital. Almost the same professional results, nowadays digital world are awesome and most of tope producers in the game are using a lot of digital tools.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I make your songs better and we make the inner feeling of the song get out to the world.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, Ableton Live, Sennheiser headphones, Neumann mic, UAD interface. Easy to use in a desert island, good results and easy to pack :).
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Last 5 years I've been mixing tracks and learning for myself. Also producing a lot of stock music and working in my own music project. Last year I decided to study, so right now I'm graduated at London School of Sound with a degree of audio mixing and mastering and working full time as a audio engineer in my studios here in Barcelona.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more, always.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm a communicator and a Good Vibes maker. I think that the relationship with the client is one of the most important things. Also I'm a musician, so it's really easy for me understand the artist side.
