I'm RickG. I play about 13 different instruments.I specialize in bringing material to life through creative editing/mixing/mastering as well as string arrangements and more!
Located in Denton, Tx- I cater to all genres of music. I utilize Universal Audio gear and all the latest plugins to get the project where YOU want it. I've definitely fixed my share of poorly mixed sessions and I've seen and fixed just about all the mistakes that can be made by a bad engineer.
I'm a music producer, not just an engineer. I am an alumni from the renowned University of North Texas College of Music (Norah Jones, Don Henley, Lacrae, Snarky Puppy to name a few)
I bring musicality to editing, a highly detailed ear and adventurous mixing to boot.
Work with me, and you're not just a client, you are a personal project of mine.
"Rick has the potential go further than anyone because he is above everything else a great musician. If you're not a great musician and call yourself an engineer/producer...you're neither."
-David Prater - Dream Theater, Firehouse, Santana

Rick communicates great with the clients and the people involved in the production."
-Maor Appelbaum - Sepultura, Faith No More
"Rick is the bomb.com"
-Sterling Winfield - Pantera, Damageplan, Hellyeah

Interview with Geneva Post Audio
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mostly mixing/editing/mastering, but I frequently get requests to play instruments, program drums and do string arrangements too.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Sylvia Massey, David Prater, Sterling Winfield are all really great.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: A wizard never reveals his secrets ;-) But I'm Universal Audio equipped and have a large amount of instruments at my disposal..
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually, there's an initial mix and then I send the track back for redo's and notes from the artist.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Just what the artist feels the song needs, nothing more.
Q: What's your strongest skill?

Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work on all kinds.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try to listen to your plugins in 'Bypass' mode. You'll find that there are many plugins that will affect the sound of a track even if they're turned off! This can be a subtle help to nuanced mixes.

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

Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: The basics; Genre, desired outcome, goals of the artist as a whole
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: People think I do this just for the money ;-)
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The clients!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: They will get over and above what they expected their music to sound like.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: BOTH! Because I like to party.
