Interview with Adrift Audio

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: In most cases, I like to have the whole process on lock. I can do the recording from scratch, and I have more control over my mix environment to work with. A lot of bands really like this approach because they can ge input into improving the recording process for a better final mix.

  3. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  4. A: I really enjoy the recordings from the 70's. Some of the best sounding and dynamic music ever tracked down.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I use a Mac with Protools; with a combination of Izotope, Waves, Slate Digital, and other plugins. JBL's as my main monitoring, in tandem with a Kenwood system for reference. I use a UA Apollo as my main digital audio converter.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: I do everything very step by step and in a sequential process.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: I always try to add that sense of spacing and dynamism to a performance and to the depth of the music. Sometimes I will add a small midi instrument or go crazy with reverb/delay layering. Anything and everything to make a song great!

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Recording, and playing percussion.

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: Rock, Indie, Pop, Classical, and any variation in between, but I am always open to doing any Genre!

  15. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  16. A: Subtlty can be a good tendency, but don't make it a habit.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: I would love to work with Andrew Scheps and some of the producers that have been in the game for 30+ years, those guys have seen everything.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Eclectic, and prone to change with the times.

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: I have been playing music for 18yrs, and recording, mixing, producing for the past 7. Music is my career.

  23. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  24. A: A solar generator, a wifi hub, my macbook, my Apollo, and my Mojave microphone.

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

  26. A: If you want professional results in a timely manner without compromises, this is the place for you!

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

  28. A: way to many to post here, I like to get to know my clients and their influences. I legitimately like making meaningful connections with the people I work with, where in music after all!

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

  30. A: That anyone can do it, and do it well.

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

  32. A: Depends, but I would say length of time before completion, which of course varies depending on the project. On average, a Mix takes at least a week before first version, Masters at least 3 days, and Producing can take a week.

  34. A: Writing and Producing! It's always fun to create and add something to a song.

  37. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  38. A: These days? kind of depends where the music is going to be listened to, and there are pro's and con's for either. Digital wins on ease of use for sure.

  40. A: Rob Murray of Poolside Audio is a great option for Pop, and indie pop artists with more of a budget.

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

  44. A: The EP "This is For You" that I finished a couple months back was a great achievement for the band, and had the most fun time recording with them.
