Interview with Orpheus Sounds

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

  2. A: Tragic H3RO, I did a lot on that album. H3RO, the artist gave me creative freedom to the whole project and it was great!

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

  4. A: I just finished a feature length film, and now working on 2 albums.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Both. Being hands-on with analog is the best, and the sound is great. Digital definitely has the advantage when it comes to everything being and sounding the same every time you open and close a session, and that's great.

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

  8. A: I love being able to make my clients' visions for their projects come to reality.

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

  10. A: A lot of times when a fan or an artist can't hear something done to a song, they think it sounded that way from the recording. Honestly, I think the best mixes are when you can't hear the mix until it's removed but sometimes it can lead to the misconception that the engineer didn't play a large role in the quality of the sound.

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

  12. A: The main questions are what is your artistic vision for this song or project and what are your goals for it.

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

  14. A: I went to Full Sail and I have been a Head Engineer since 2010.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: My style is very musical if you know what that means. I like everything in a song to work in harmony with one another.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: Vocals, I always hear great things about the vocals and I take pride in making sure everything that is being said is clear for the audience.

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

  20. A: Whatever it calls for, but we as fans of music remember how a song made us feel and that's what I bring out - the emotion.

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

  22. A: It depends on the job. If it's recording, then the primary objective is getting the client in their comfort zone so they can deliver their best possible performance. For mixing, I like to talk to the artist or the producer to get an idea of what the vision is for project. I'll often ask for reference tracks to further that understanding. I'll then listen to the project to see what I feel it needs and to find out what drives it. I'll then start the mix. Once it's done, I'll send it to the client for feedback. If it needs revision, I'll do that after I receive feedback. My number one goal is to accomplish that vision for the client.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: I have a hybrid setup. I'm mainly in the box and the mix bus is hardware.

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

  26. A: I mainly mix songs for my clients, but I also work as a boom operator and mix for film.

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

  28. A: Hozier is one of my favorites artist, Lizzo, Grieves, and Panic!

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

  30. A: I just joined.

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

  32. A: I will not lie about my skills, or do anything half of my ability.

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

  34. A: Can you fix this is the top question, and can you remove the vocals from the beat? And the fix-it questions depends on what it is and the remove the vocals from the beat question is no.

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

  36. A: Make sure you are willing to promote the songs you are mixing, don't spend money on something that you will forget about in a week.

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

  38. A: Computer, hard-drive, interface, mic and headphones.

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

  40. A: Someone that loves their art and tries to be themselves. Nothing can beat that.

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