I would lie if I said I am a pro-engineer. I am not. I am an intermediate mixing student who's trying to build up a client base for fair price. I love music in first place and I love to be a part of a process of creating some new music.

Interview with Richad L. Sapp
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Once I receive stems I do a rough mix and send back to revisions until the customer is satisfied. I am opened to as many revisions as it's needed (a fair number of revisions of course). But before I start to work I would like to listen some examples of music the band or single artist likes. That's very important for me to know the taste of a customer. When it comes to mastering it's same process and the reference track is even more important.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I would lie if I said I am a pro-engineer. I am not. I am an intermediate mixing/mastering student who's trying to build up a client base for fair price. I love music in first place and I love to be a part of a process of creating some new music.
