    I came to Kristin because I needed help with production and mixing for my song. I only had an idea strummed on a guitar with vocals. Kristin exceeded my expectations and made a great production and a very creatively sounding mix. I will definitely be using her service again.

Interview with Kristin Waage

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Definitely both! Analog brings you the dynamics, which personally I love.

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

  4. A: Have good recordings.. or the mix can suffer.

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

  6. A: Assuming there's electricity! My electric guitar, Speakers, SM58 microphone, Computer, Mixer. I'd just use my time jamming on the island!

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: Groovy style

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

  10. A: Production/mixing tip: Give yourself a break from mixing, it's not good for you or the song to listen to the track over and over again for maybe 3 hours. For example when I have a few songs to mix I swap between them, working shortly on each one, giving myself "Fresh ears" and sometimes even an excitement to go back to that 1st song and keep on mixing. This helps me from not getting bored of the song and also more importantly from making sure I don't start making errors in the mix.

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

  12. A: I mostly work on Electronic Pop today but I've worked with so many genres.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: Catchy melodies

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

  16. A: Unique sound and passion

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I have my HS8 studio monitors which are connected to my Behringar X32 mixer giving me inputs for great live recordings as well. My X32 is then connected via USB to my MacBook Pro where my main DAWs are Pro Tools for recording and Ableton Live 10 for Sound Design and production. I have massive collection of plugins that I have collected over the years. I'm equipped with many microphones but my 2 favourite ones that I have are the Shure SM-7B and the Neumann U87ai. I tend to move around as well and mix in the box so I travel often with AKAI LPK25 MIDI keyboard and a Scarlett interface. Then I have few others equipment that I name in the gear highlight section.

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

  20. A: Skrillex, Diplo, John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Michael Jackson, Dave Pensado, Queen, Daft Punk, Disclosure

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

  22. A: Mixing
