Interview with Kort Riddle
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I think my biggest tip is to have a reason for doing something. Whether it's in the product of the song itself or the mix. If you're going to add a tambourine to a track, have a reason for doing so. If I'm going to eq a guitar, i need to have a goal in mind for why i'm eqing that guitar.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I believe my strongest skill is working with Vocals. As a vocalist myself, i am very particular with how a vocal sounds and how it fits in the mix.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: After getting the stems into a Protools or Logic Project i normally will listen to the rough mix to get inspiration for the song. There are reasons elements of the song sound a certain way and i'll try to stay as true as i can to the rough mix unless otherwise noted. I'll continually reference back to the rough to make sure i'm on the same page as the artist. Other than that I'll get a good balance of the mix, then start applying treatment to individual tracks if need.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in a studio in my home. Fairly simple set up. I have a pair of Adams and Yamaha monitors i use to mix with. Of course acoustic treatment and my trusty Apollo Twin.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Oh man, there are so many. Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic was a big inspiration to me growing up, Dave Bayley of Glass Animals is an animal as well. I'm also very inspired by the local bands in Utah where i'm from!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: A client normally will send me stems for the song they need mixed. I then will mix the song and work with them from there to tweak the mix to their taste.
