3 ReviewsEndorse Alex Martin
Wow. If you need a producer, songwriter, musician, or singer, I couldn't recommend Alex more. I heard him playing on the subway and after talking with him for a bit, I asked him if he would consider producing some songs for me. I definitely made the right decision. Alex is extremely talented, works efficiently, and seems to be able to put the sounds in his head onto a guitar, keyboard, or into a computer with complete ease. A joy to work with, and a joy to watch work.
Alex is an extremely talented musician and an expert at mastering tracks. I was surprised that I hadn’t heard much about about him before I had hired him to do some mixes for me, but he is highly skilled, very professional while working together, and he pays close attention to detail. He is definitely going to be a big name in the music industry and I would highly recommend his services.
I hired Alex Martin to mix and master my last EP. I could ask for a better mix I was so happy the way the songs came out . Alex Martin is a name I will definitely recommend to all artist . I also was very happy Alex Martin delivered my EP mixed in 24 hours . The best bang for my buck Thankyou Alex Martin. You Rock Bro . Can’t wait for you to produce my next EP talk to you soon .
Interview with Alex Martin
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is the difference between a mix and a master. These are two different part of the process of bringing a song to market.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice for having customers hire me is to be communicative and concise. Understanding builds trusts.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I describe my style as alternative pop with a nod to hip-hop's sonics and dynamic range.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd like to work with Tom Misch because I simply admire his sound, character, and talent at creating soundscapes.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I was especially proud of the outcome my "11:11" project because it was album that has really opened doors for me professionally and is a great indicator of my progress as a producer, creator, and engineer.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: The most common thing I get asked to do is make their music sound "louder" or make it sound like it can go on the radio. To the untrained ear I understand why they would say louder. My response to that is giving them a final cut that has dynamics, presence, and doesn't overload the signal which are just several factors that make a record sound "louder".
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask my customers what their clear expectations are for the track they are hiring me to work on. Once that is established, it is much easier to please a customer by knowing their needs to the tee.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Buses help create a more controlled sonic environment for your track.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I want to make this process enjoyable and I want to give you peace of mind. With respect to the creative process, I understand how to make a song BIGGER without compromising dynamics and overloading signals. I finalize things until they are nice on the ears. I bring balance to a song while still boosting its presence.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I use several output devices to listen to a final mix but with a final mix that appeals to all output (i.e. Yamaha HS8s, studio monitoring headphones, the car, skullcandys, airpods etc.)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Fairly Oddparents so I could live in peace, wish my studio into existence on that island so I can just live doing what I love from that island.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: J Dilla, 40, Shiloh Dynasty, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Rihanna, and Prince are artists/producers that immediately come to mind when I think about those who inspire me.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I have music deals with E!TV, MTV, ESPN, and Bravo for licensing in the works. I am always working on new music. I'm working on several albums as well. My music will be featured in Batboy on Broadway in March of 2020.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise I will give your project my full undivided attention and expertise. I will treat your record with the same detail as I would treat my own.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the inspiration I get when connecting with other artists. It makes me feel apart of a bigger community and I derive a sense of pride knowing I do what I love.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started singing when I was four. I've been writing songs for thirteen years, producing for nine years, mixing and mastering for 7 years, and have been playing multiple instruments since the age of 7. I worked as a music teacher in London, NYC, and Upstate New York. I also became a professional songwriter for TV shows and Broadway. I love what I do. My life has always been music, I just made my life my career.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Singer-Songwriter, Soundtrack, Acoustic, Alt-Rock, and Hip-Hop instrumentals
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can juggle. No but seriously, I can and it has helped me in many aspects of my life besides a cool party trick. I've learned to juggle in music with balance. It's all about the balance... with respect to EQ-ing, compression, levels, and stereo imaging, I make sure the project isn't harsh on the ears and digestible to the commercial palette.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: - Yamaha HS-8s - Yamaha HPH-MT5s Studio Monitoring Headphones - AKG C 214 Professional Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone - Macbook Pro - 12 String Brunswick Acoustic Guitar - Fender Telecaster (limited edition) - 6 String Luna - Ukulele - M-Audio BX5s - M Audio Midi Keyboard - Stand Up Piano - Logic Pro X - Scarlett Interface
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do for my clients are mixing and master. When my clients send me their stems what they all ultimately communicate is that they want their sound louder, bigger, and more balanced. My job is to take their creative decisions into account when approaching the record to make it sonically and functionally, commercially viable.
