Interview with Nathan Kane
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually work as a mixing and mastering engineer, but I do a lot of editing, tuning and comping as well. I love working on all steps in a production, and am open to whatever you need!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I have a scrutinizing ear. I notice small errors in a track very easily, which helps me recognize any problems and fix them immediately. I will work with a track and perfect it until I am happy with it.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Organize your sessions! Name your clips and tracks. Minimize clutter. Edit as soon as you can. An organized session makes a happy engineer. They'll be able to take your track so much further because they wont have to wade through confusing setups and unnamed clips.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I want to hear about their project! I want to know what motivates them and where they draw their inspiration. If there's a certain feel they're trying to go for, or a certain sound they're trying to emulate, I'd love to find out beforehand so that I can do my research and deliver them the best possible product.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to work with like-minded professionals who share a common goal of making amazing music. I've made some extremely fulfilling relationships through producing, and I wouldn't trade that for the world. The feeling of accomplishment is very rewarding as well.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hybrid. There are certain characteristics and nuances that can't be accomplished in digital. Plus it's nice to use your hands to really feel the art of mixing or mastering. Digital, on the other hand, is extremely fast and efficient. In editing, I'm able to make a song sound incredibly tight and powerful, and I can easily try out a bunch of different creative alterations to the sound without any commitments. Using both in tandem seems to be the most efficient to me.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Right now I am working on writing and engineering the new record for my band, Whale Bones. I self-produce and I'm really proud of how it's turning out!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been recording and producing since 2012. I graduated with a degree in Audio Engineering from Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music. I interned at Audiotree Live for two years, working with artists like Maps and Atlases, All Get Out, Mewithoutyou, Bad Suns, and Foxing. In my free time, I wrote and recorded for my band, Whale Bones. I mastered our debut EP "The Seaside EP". I am in the process of writing a full-length record, which I will be mixing and mastering in-house. My other band, The Wise Man's Fear, has released one record and is set to release another one this year. I currently am a full-time engineer, and am always open to working with new clients on their projects!
