Interview with Sage Sauder
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I walk clients through the whole music process from conception of an idea to the completion of a track. I specialize the the mixing, editing, and producing side of the process.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My biggest inspirations are Justin Timberlake, Neyo, and Maroon 5. These artists are heavy influences in all of my music.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I currently operate out of the University of St. Francis Studios in Fort Wayne, IN. Most of my sessions are run of of a Neve 5088 or an Avid S6. I have numerous preamp options and mic choices.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to understand the inspiration behind an artist's song before I ever start recording. I have to know where they are coming from and where the have been in order to help shape their future musical journey. After this, we hit the ground running with our recording process. This is where I interject my producer skills and make sure the vocals have feeling and that each track has the proper instrumentation and body. From there, all of the post work begins. I start by pocketing and editing. All of my comps are done while in the studio during tracking. Once the editing is complete, I take time to craft a well balanced mix before sending the track to mastering.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The key to a solid record is a solid performance. Never fix a problem in post. Catch it early and do it right.
