Interview with Liberated Studios

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

  2. A: Recording, Mixing, Production and Mastering.

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

  4. A: We pull inspiration from many places, and across many genres.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: We have 2 main rooms, and a 3rd production room. Studio A is based around a Neve V66 console and Studio B is based around an SSL G Series 8000 console.

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

  8. A: This depends at what point of the project we come in. We are capable of starting from the beginning with production and tracking right through to the mastering stage.

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

  10. A: We have over 15 years of experience in the professional studio world, that experience, great engineers and some of the best recording gear in existence is what makes our sound special.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Our specialties are definitely the mix and master stage. Of course we do tracking and production, but our real art is the mix and master.

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

  14. A: We do a range of music, probably 40 rap/hip hop 20% EDM 20% Rock and the remaining 10% of our work has ranged from Latin to Opera to Classical Piano and beyond..

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

  16. A: Have your ideas together and clearly explain what you are looking for, we are very good at our jobs, but we are not mind readers.

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

  18. A: That you don't need a good analog based studio to get a professional sound. This is absolutely false, in order to get a sound that translates across many mediums from the grocery store PA system to your car stereo, a great room with great monitoring and great gear is needed. Only so much can be done on a laptop or in a project studio. The final stages should be left to a good studio with great gear and experienced engineers.

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

  20. A: We will give you what you are looking for. We guarantee it, if you can provide us with clear communication and examples of what you want we can accomplish anything!!

  21. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  22. A: A combination of both for sure, doing a mix through an analog console is so much more clear and separated than doing a digital bounce, that is the most important use of analog gear, summing in the analog domain on a legendary console.

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

  24. A: Take your time and make sure everything is perfect. And for performers going to a studio, our number one tip is to make sure you have the material down pat, this makes a great recording and saves everyone time.

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

  26. A: Our 2 full time engineers have been in the music business since the mid 90s. Our 2 Junior engineers are graduates of SAE and Full Sail Recording Schools.
