Hello, my name is Christian, I am the owner, producer, and engineer at Basic Productions. I attended Full Sail University for Audio Production. I have been producing for 4 years now. I have that "industry standard" sound that you often hear producers mentioning. I picked the name Basic because I was always seen as basic, but I am not.
I'm working to develop more clientele so for the time being I added some songs I worked on a few years ago.
I treat each and every track with love and care, as if I where working on my own projects!
The number one thing that I do for you is listen! Message me the direction and feel you have for your song, and I will make it happen!
I strive to provide 100% satisfaction!
Advanced EQ, Compression, Noise Gating, Reverb, Delay, DeEssing, etc. using industry standard plugins and advanced mixing techniques.

Songwriting - Full Songs, Verse, or Hook

Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not at this time, I am new to the service.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: This depends on a lot and they are both used.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Professionalism, quality, and a lasting relationship.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like to see things come to life, its amazing.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: If I can make them sound like *insert their favorite artists name*. My answer is I can't because you are yourself, but I can make you sound the best I can, in that direction, if you liked the vibe or feel of what you heard. Sound like yourself though, just learn from certain aspects of other peoples performances, and apply it to your style.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: One I have noticed consistently is Auto-Tune standards. Its a big misconception that producer man can Auto-Tune you into sounding like Billie Ellish if you sing like a Billie Goat. Auto-Tune requires the proper pitch. For a serious pitch correcting frenzy you should start utilizing Melodyne, things of that nature.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have the stems, and do you want me to add some sauce to it? This is important because some beat distributors strive for a constantly weekly content release and don't provide as good of quality as they could. Sometimes things still need mix/mastered or the drums need a little Basic sauce on them.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Use the services your most comfortable with, don't settle for less, and don't rush.

A: My Macbook Pro (w/charger), Solar Panel, a good Power Supply, good headphones, tarp

A: Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus Bus

I haven't worked on the others because I have not been fortunate enough to meet any in need of my services though.
