Interview with Alex BADAGEE

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both, absolutely. Digital with high-end plug ins processing that can do their job every time exactly the same, beside of amazing analog pieces of gear. A great combination of dedicated analog and digital is the key of my mastering chain. And having many different color options for each process, allows me to find the best possible combination for every song.

  3. Q: How would you describe your style?

  4. A: My style is hard-working, respectful of the music and extremely committed. I would never deliver a mastering that I am not completely proud.

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

  6. A: I have seen with great pleasure that my friend Alix Stanford is on SoundBetter. I would recommend him to anyone without a doubt.

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

  8. A: I only promise that I will be honest. If the mix is not ready for mastering, I will simply tell them what I expect them to change, for the benefit of their record. I will never promise to fix in mastering things that need to be fixed in the mix.

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

  10. A: I just like to find the right color and a new breath for the music. I like teaming up with producers and/or mixing engineers.I know I can do it well and I really enjoy doing it.

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

  12. A: Unfortunatly, very often, customers want to know if I can make their music sound louder than someone else´s . My answer is always the same : I have absolutely nothing against volume, so I will try to get there but only as long as it does not degrade your audio quality. Then I make sure that I explore all the available options to compress and find the best possible compromise to deliver a master that sounds in the range they want but where you can´t hear the distortion and degradation commonly associated with excessive compression. In the other end, when there is no pressure to increase the final RMS level, it´s much easier and pleasant to concentrate in the color I want to get for that music.

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

  14. A: Many people still believe that mastering is a technical process only. Nothing, really nothing can be farther from the truth. Mastering is an entirely artistic and creative process that can “save“ your mix right before it reaches the audience. Never underestimate the power of a good mastering process.

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

  16. A: First, I ask to listen to their music, which speaks for itself. After I ask questions related to the sound they are looking for, the RMS level they intend to have and even about the evolution of the recording sessions. It´s crucial for me to understand if they got there by mistake or if that is the audio they wanted to achieve.
