What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I will always deliver what/when I said I would
What do you like most about your job?
I love music, so been able to make a living working with music is the best thing possible
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What's the deadline, the budget, if they have an idea of how the mix should be, and very important, what reference tracks or bands I should use.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I use a MacBook Pro with Logic Pro X running through a Focusrite interface, plugged to JBL monitors. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD headphones that I use with the Sonarworks Headphone Calibration plugin. I have the whole Slate plugin collection, as well as several Waves plugins. When I work with voice overs, I run them through Izotope RX first, to get rid of noises, clicks and pops, then export to Logic Pro X to finish the mix.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Mostly rock, and heavier genres, but I mixed all types of music
What's your strongest skill?
Very responsible. If you give me a deadline, I'll tell you if I can deliver or not. If I say yes, unless I die, I will meet the deadline.
I am always learning, listening to new music, reading, talking to other engineers, so I am always improving my mixing skills
What do you bring to a song?
I always try to bring something unique to every song, either in arrangement or the mix. Sometimes I feel like a song is asking for something more. But of course, there are always those awesome songs that don't need anything else to be great. I learned that there's a time to be creative and a time to play safe. But in the end is always the artirt's decision
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Mainly mixing, sometimes arrangement/production. And ocasionally record guitars.
