Interview with Zac Myers
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Twiceyoung EP Little Mind Alike. That album is a masterpiece to me.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on getting more content online of my playing and my sounds i achieve.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not at the moment where im brand new on here, but hopefully soon!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, but with analog touch. For example i run the Console 1 through my slate raven that allows me to mix drums as if im on a vintage Neve or even SSL board. EQ's, Compression, Gate, i can control it all with that vintage drum sound.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: You will not be disappointed with the tracks i send you.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love adding to someones else's art. Very rarely am I tracking something I created, but rather I get to add to someone else's journey.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I most commonly get asked about my setup and playing experience. My answers can be found above.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: People that arent musicians or artists or even creative in someway never understand the passion we as musicians have for what we do.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask them to tell me about each song im tracking and what they felt in the moment when writing it. I ask what mood or color they picture the song. I then ask for the BPM and Key of the song and a WAV file to track along with.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Trust your instinct. When choosing session players you will know what you like and don't like. Speak up.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Tough question. Does kit count as one instrument? lol. I guess it would be a Nord stage 3. A ludwig legacy maple kit with Zildjian K Sweet series. A Martin D45. Of course a mac and pro tools setup. And finally universal audio preamps.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I was a full time touring and session player for 10 years (right out of high school). Since then I have had the opportunity to work in TV as well as now owning a studio.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with John Mayer. His songs have inspired my playing from a very young age.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I have found using a Shure SM7 (vocal mic) on my main snare bottom helps get that extra "crack" needed. Blended just right it adds a huge amount of depth to the overall snare sound. I also use a DW Moon mic on the kick out and Audix D6 on kick in. Very cool combination.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Indie, Rock, Americana, Folk, Country, Latin.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring depth and feel first and foremost. Back beats and grooves.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When someone sends me a wav file of their song (with no drums) I will fly that track into a pro tools session and track drums over top of it. I will send the client 16 individual tracks back via WeTransfer or DropBox. I can put my signature sound on the drums or send you raw files to have someone else mix, your choice.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I own the recording studio with unlimited mic and preamp possibilities. Rig 1 for me is a Risen Custom Kit 22'' kick, 12"rack, 16" floor, and then snares are 14/6.5 Risen Maple, 14/6.5 Ludwig Black Beauty, 14/5 Ludwig Acrolite, 10/6 PDP popcorn, 13/5 Leedy Aluminum, and 14/5 Yamaha Maple.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Ash Soan, Aaron Sterling, Steve Jordan...the list goes on and on.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I offer drum tracks for all styles and genres of music My playing follows the "fills bring thrills, but grooves pay bills" philosophy.
