Interview with Cavaro
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Mainly I ask what kind of sound they are after and to show me a list of their favorite songs so that I can know what's their style and preferences
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To keep the communication active so that we can get the best results out of the project.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started in 2012 after graduating from SAE Institute at Melbourne, Australia. I have been mixing and mastering professionally for around 7 years with over a thousand projects successfully mixed and mastered. Some of those projects are on Sony Music, others on Warner, and many others on successful independent labels such as Mad Decent.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is defined to what the client is looking for, that is why communication is very important when I work with someone, I need to know what are they looking for for their song and their style so that I can "adapt" and deliver the best results for every artist.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Definitely Ariana Grande and Bruno Mars, since their vocal range and performance is very dynamic, without mentioning they have very unique voice colors. Also because the production on their songs is quite different to the normal, and I really like to work on original and authentic kind of beats and vocals.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I would say multi band side chaining on a bass instrument. When you have a kick drum and a bass that clash only in the very low end of the spectrum, you can add multi band side chain to affect only the lower clashing frequencies of the bass without affecting the higher frequencies. This will make your sub end sound very clear and powerful by keeping intact the higher and necessary non clashing mid and high frequencies of the bass.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on different genres but mainly Reggaeton, Electronic Dance music(EDM) and Pop
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My Strongest skills are the mixing of drums and all kinds of percussion and making vocals stand out of the mix.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring life and clarity to all the elements in the song so that they can be heard clearly and loud enough to compete at a commercial level.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I organize the mix, look for frequency clashes, clean up the whole mix, place the instruments where they can be heard clearly, add processing (harmonic exciters, compression, multi band processing, Dynamic EQ) where and when needed. I then send a mix to the client and ask for their feedback, once the mix is approved I proceed to master the song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Adam A7X monitors Yamaha Hs7 (for reference) KRK Rokit 5 (For Reference) Universal Audio Apollo Twin Audio Interface Behringer X touch (with expansions) Control Surface
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: luca pretolesi
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually do full mixing and mastering to have more control over the final result. I can also provide only mixing or only mastering or vocal edits (auto tuning, cleaning, processing).
