Interview with Luke Forehand

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I am a staff engineer at Blackbird Studio and mix in the box out of my home. I primarily use Pioneer monitors, Fab Filter, McDSP, Slate and Waves Plugins. Happy to mix on one of the studio's consoles as well.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: An electronic dance mix.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Not at this time.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Depends on the project. Analog is fun, digital is a better tool.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: It will sound good.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: Getting drum sounds.

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

  14. A: It's not magic. A bad sound will not usually be transformed into a good one unless it is replaced.

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

  16. A: What their goals are, artists they like and how much of my input they want.

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

  18. A: Don't be afraid to communicate. It's your song.

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

  20. A: Enough gear to make a record and a way to connect to the internet.

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

  22. A: I've spent time in bands, working in live sound and doing studio internships. I've been interested in learning about music production for over 15 years.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Dynamic.

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

  26. A: The band Nothing More. Really love the sound and production of their last record.

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

  28. A: Don't overdo it.

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

  30. A: Hard Rock/Metal/Country

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Mixing/Tracking, getting sounds.

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

  34. A: For mixing and tracking, I like to make sure the song lives in its own space and has its own identity. From a production standpoint, my goal is to make sure I identify with the artists' goal for the song and add/subtract elements that are necessary to take the song where it needs to go.

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

  36. A: Each session will have its specifics but I like to make sure we make the most of the studio time allotted.

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

  38. A: I try to maintain my own identity as far as music production goes. I enjoy the work of others but do not strive to sound like certain individuals

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

  40. A: I mostly do mixing and tracking work.
