Interview with Gabe Yaron

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

  2. A: Mixing+Mastering, Production, Piano tracks, Guitar Tracks, Bass tracks

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

  4. A: Charlie Puth, Anomalie, Grey, Zedd, Lauv

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: My mac runs Logic X and I mix out of JBL LSR305s in addition to some great AKG headphones. I use an apollo twin for recording, TLM103 for vocals, Sm57 and the TLM for recording piano.

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

  8. A: For mixing, I drag everything in and start with each instrument. Drums, then bass, then guitar, then keys/synths, and then fx/impacts. Then I add EQ's to each track and stick a compressor on the ones that need it. The whole process varies depending on the amount of tracks, the genre, etc.

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

  10. A: I bring what is necessary, for example, depending on what the artist wants I will bring a jazzy vibe into the tracks I give them, or implement an EDM vibe into a production. Whatever the artist wants, I do.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: My strongest skill is not overdoing anything. With mixing espeically, I try to tweak only what needs to be tweaked, nothing over the top that could change the whole dynamic of the song.

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

  14. A: I usually work on Pop, EDM, or Rnb/Jazz.

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

  16. A: Add everything you hear in your head, then slowly take away what is not needed.

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

  18. A: I'd love to work with Charlie Puth, because I love his minimal yet still full production, and I like the funky vibe in all his songs. (And we both have perfect pitch :))

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Jazz/Pop/EDM all together.

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

  22. A: I've been producing for around 5 years, but playing instruments all my life.

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

  24. A: My computer, my midi controller, a piano (is that possible?), my air conditioner (that's an essential piece of gear), and my Neuman mic.

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

  26. A: Don't be afraid to approach me with confusing details! I'm open to revising any changes you don't like and I do what you want, not just what I think sounds good.

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

  28. A: Helping others and especially learning from others.

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

  30. A: I promise to fulfill the changes you want and revise as many things as needed.

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

  32. A: New singles, some instrumental jazz tracks, some pop tracks with singers.

  33. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  34. A: My single "No Obligation" that I wrote with my brother is my proudest so far. My brother and I went in the studio one day and the track came about pretty quickly, although the revision process was much longer. It was fun the whole way through, and I can definitely say I'm proud of my collaborative work as well as my individual work on that one.
