Michael Moon on SoundBetter

Hi! My name is Michael and I am currently in school to be an Audio Engineer. I am top of my class and am told that I am very talented. I'm just starting out, so I don't expect to get rich. I'm really just here for experience.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Michael Moon

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

  2. A: I really just want to build my portfolio and help people who may not be able to afford the big names yet.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Hybrid. It's extremely difficult to go all analog these days without a huge budget. I love analog sound...but can't afford it quite yet. Digital is cheaper and easier. Mix the two!

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

  6. A: If you give me a project to mix, you are handing me your baby. I treat that process with that same kind of respect.

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

  8. A: I can do it for hours on end without getting tired of it.

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

  10. A: Mixing is just adding a bunch of plug-ins.

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

  12. A: I always ask for a rough bounce and reference track.

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

  14. A: being able to use a bunch of plug-ins does not make you a good mixing engineer.

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

  16. A: I've been doing my own recordings for over 10 years. Just recently thought, "Hey I should go to school for this."

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: Simply yet effective.

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

  20. A: The Decemberists. I don't know...they're just good...seems like it would be a breeze.

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

  22. A: Mixing should be reductive by nature.

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

  24. A: Indie Alternative Rock. But I'm open to most anything.

  25. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  26. A: I'd say mixing. Editing second.

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

  28. A: An outside perspective. Sometimes that's the most important thing. I have an interesting ability to listen to a song from many different points of view to find what makes the song most endearing and then I try to bring those qualities to the front.

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

  30. A: Depends on the job. Mixing in particular: Organize, Route, Eq, Comp, Reverb, Delay, Bus Comp. Seems reductive now that I see it typed out...

  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: Home studio. MacBook Pro. Akai Interface.

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

  34. A: Mixing, Editing, Advice
