Interview with Les Lingle Productions

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
My latest jazz project. I did all of the engineering and mastering. It was a live performance on a stage captured with a Motu Traveler connect to my laptop and mixed on a old computer that sounds like it was mixed on a SSL console.
What are you working on at the moment?
Some music score tracks for a couple of trailers
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
No but I would say if the engineer does not specialize in your music don't hire them.
Analog or digital and why?
Yes great sound and no more razor cuts what's not to love. If you got talent,skills, and know how you can work on any format and it will sound good.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
You will get a much better end product then you thought possible.
What do you like most about your job?
mixing and mastering.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
When will you have something for me to hear. I always deliver on time.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
How my fee's are low but the work is very high quality. They think that maybe I am looking yo build a resume when really I just have vert low overhead and I live humbly.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
Who's music do you listen to for your inspiration.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
After you hear some of their work ask questions to see if the provider understands your music direction
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
a pocket recorder, lots of batteries, ipad to mix sounds with, more batteries, two AKG 414's (original release)
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started as a recording engineer in a mid size studio doing both sessions and mastering of 17 years then for the past 13 years I have been doing post audio and video work as a freelancer.
How would you describe your style?
Very focused with a ear for detail.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Dave Matthews Band because they are all talent players with vocal performances that capture great energy and emotion plus some of the best drums and bass on the planet!
Can you share one music production tip?
If you want big sounding mixes leave yourself plenty of headroom on the mix buss and keep you listening level the same till the mix is complete. Then find a quiet place to your ears to rest.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Jazz groups, rock and pop bands, classical. and small acoustic sets. I also mix live performances from praise and worship bands to choirs performing with live orchestras.
What's your strongest skill?
I big sonic clarity to all my mixes and masters you will hear all the detail from the back throat of a vocal to the tinkle of the bell of a cymbal. I want you to enjoy the mix like it was a concert coming from the best seat in the house.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring dynamic punch and fatness to make the music full and put the audience on the front row to take it all in.
What's your typical work process?
To listen to all tracks at zero on the consoles then any supplied roughs to get a feel of what the band liked when the were done recording. From there it just sand and polish the tunes.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I use Pro Tools, Sonar X3, Cubase, Adobe Audition, and Harrison MixBus for my main Daw's along with hundreds of plugins from Waves, PSP Audioware, Nomad Factory, and IK Multimedia. For mastering I use Wavelab or Soundforge
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I enjoy instrumentals played by real acoustic players in live settings where the energy is flowing like jazz sessions, big bands, string quartets, and piano music. Plus a mix of ripping guitars for some added flavor kinda of Van Haylen meets the Boston Pop's
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
The projects I seem to do the most these days are trailers for published author's of their books. These involve music scores and sound design and full video production. Most scores are all multi-track mixes created in either Pro Tools or Sonar X3 that are them added to the video scenes.
