Interview with Victor Acosta

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I am Proud I worked with a band called Gossamer. They Broke up before everything was released so nothing came out Officially. But when I listen to their mixes I still sing along to it every time. Recording them was so much fun and we would record until 2 am. The experience is everything.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Working on Radio Edits, Podcasts, Recording, and my own EDM Projects.

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

  6. A: Not Yet.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: ohhhhhhh, Analog does give it warmth but im not going to lie. Digital is REALLY close. You really really have to listen to hear the difference especially in todays world. Its so close but I still fall under Analog for the warmth.

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

  10. A: Quality and Great Service. You and the person youre working with should be able to connect and help each other grow.

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

  12. A: Literally everything. I love the challenges and the people. As a musician I understand how it feels when everything is complete and you listen to your work. You just cant help but feeling so proud and happy. That is one of the best feelings in the word and thats what I aim for with every project.

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

  14. A: What the turnover rate is. Its no more than a week depending on the project. If you need it in a hurry I do charge $35 extra.

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

  16. A: That I don't do much because I can do things fast. But its because of years of hard work and failing so much that I learned to do things effectively.

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

  18. A: What the message or "vibe" of the project is trying to achieve.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Make sure you come to record and not practice. A lot of time people are rehearsing during recording time and it comes out a little sloppy. I can fix a sound but a sloppy performance is a sloppy performance at the end of the day. So make sure you practice and rehearse before coming in to get the BEST performance we can and give people something incredible.
