Interview with Sauced By Luck
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I specialize in R&B, Hip-Hop, Singer-songwriter, & Indie
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Dave Pensado, Seth Firkins, MixedbyAli, and many more
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work at recording studio with one booth that uses an Rode NT1 mic connected to a DBX286s and Warm Audio WA12 all running through a MboxPro with a Macbook Pro.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I typically use half of the booked session time to record the vocals while organizing and doing some slight mixing for clarity of vocals. Unless the artist wants to spend the entire time recording, I will then use the second half of the time for complete mixing and mastering of whatever was recorded until the time is up.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring clarity while creating an atmosphere for the listener. I like to highlight small details of the song (distant adlibs and sounds) to give more personality to the overall mix.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My attention to detail and honesty with the artist. When editing I don't leave any stones unturned when trying to find how to make the song stand out and if anything should or shouldn't be done I make sure to communicate that with the artist.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I specialize in R&B, Hip-Hop, Singer-songwriter, & Indie, but I am open to all genres.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: There are no rules for what sounds good to you.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with Kendrick Lamar not only because he has heavy jazz influences in his music which is my top favorite genre, but because he has a lot of experience in recording by this point so I know I could learn a lot from him.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would say my style is eclectic yet still conventional.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been a disk jockey since 2015 and an audio engineer since 2016.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Neumann TLM102, Apogee Duet, Warm Audio WA12, Avalon Vt737, Macbook Pro.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: For recording I request that appointments are made at least 24 hours in advance. When sending tracks to be edited make sure they are sent as .wav files and the instrumental is separate from the vocals. Also make sure the vocals have the necessary empty space before the actual audio so that it successfully lines up to the song.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: None other than any specific adjustments to the song
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: A lot of people thing audio engineering is the same as beat production.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Do I make beats also. At the moment I do not have any beats open to the public but they will be available very soon.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love being creative so it gives me time to clear my head and create.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To treat their song as if it were mine
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. The sound that analog equipment makes is unbeatable but digital equipment is often more convenient to work with.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not at the moment.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on building my own home studio with high quality equipment, and specific adjustments to the room space for sonic improvements in the overall song quality.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I engineered a song for an artist that was placed on an Under Armour commercial. I was asked to edit out all profanity and add some reverb, delay, etc.
