Interview with LoadFactor Studios

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

  2. A: I normally do mixing and mastering. I get called when a band or artist records at one facility and wants the benefit of a different mixing and mastering studio and producer/engineer including the use of a lot of gear that they may not have at the recording facility. Tracking songs is one thing but to really get the most out of your recording, a professional mixing and mastering facility makes all the difference!

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both. I have the best of both worlds here at LoadFactor Studios. Digital is the easiest format to work with these days and doesn't add color or noise etc. It's very clean. But it can also be sterile and that's where analog comes in. I run analog summing plus I have a lot of real analog gear for processing including specific 2 bus devices that bring back that musicality to the sterile digital world. The analog gear adds that flavor that's missing in most "in the box" recordings.

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

  6. A: I'm currently working on a project that is all organic acoustic music with a ton of vocals and real percussion.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: I have a hybrid of digital in-the-box and high end analog outboard gear with analog summing for the best of both worlds and for a sound that is not achievable in the typical bedroom studio. I can add analog coloring on the mix to achieve the emotion you just cant get from digital only.

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

  10. A: I like to get to know my clients, not just musically but their backgrounds in life and motivations for doing music. I like to know why they write what they write. All of these things help me to capture whats inside their heads and what their end goal/concept is for their music.

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

  12. A: I love it when my clients get transported away into ecstasy when they hear the mix/master of their songs. There's nothing better than seeing my clients get lost in the emotion of their songs when they hear how great they can sound!
