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.

Interview with Michael Moon
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I really just want to build my portfolio and help people who may not be able to afford the big names yet.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
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!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
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.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I can do it for hours on end without getting tired of it.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Mixing is just adding a bunch of plug-ins.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask for a rough bounce and reference track.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: being able to use a bunch of plug-ins does not make you a good mixing engineer.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing my own recordings for over 10 years. Just recently thought, "Hey I should go to school for this."
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Simply yet effective.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: The Decemberists. I don't know...they're just good...seems like it would be a breeze.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Mixing should be reductive by nature.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Indie Alternative Rock. But I'm open to most anything.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'd say mixing. Editing second.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
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.
Q: What's your typical work process?
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...
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Home studio. MacBook Pro. Akai Interface.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, Editing, Advice
