Hello, my name is Ethan with Fungus Bros. Studio Productions. We are a music and art production studio with the soul purpose of achieving artists vision and personal connection to thier art as a Recording , Mixing , and Mastering studio.
I have been playing drums for 11 years and have done my fair share of recording myself playing drums, but have recently found I enjoy mixing other artists and other unique genres. I am looking to obtain more experience in mixing and tracking for any artist or independent artist whether it be the artist who wants to have fun and get a song mixed and tracked for kicks and giggles, to the artist who wants to take their career further as a musician as I aspire to do as a mix and multitracking engineer. My co-worker and I have been playing music together for a long time and now are wanting to build our own studio and progress as a business. I offer to mix a song or album under reasonable expectations. One final service I provide is to satisfy a client 100% in achieving their desired vision, mood, and overall effect of the song.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
Interview with Fungus Bros. Studio Production
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually do Mixing and Mastering for my clients as they see my doing more than just adding reverb and effects as I achieve more diverse dynamics with balanced frequency content.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am a big fan of Heavy Metal music my self as I enjoy more late 80's and early 90's thrash metal.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I am running Pro Tools 12 with a behringer FCA forward interface. With behringer ADAT to expand inputs and outputs. Multiple guitar pedals for effects and then a Dbx compressor. KRK monitors and a few other basic plugins.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically work with volume and pan mixing at first to make sure all instruments are at a respectable and appropriate level which is a huge step. Then start cleaning up clips by fade ins and outs where needed and high or low pass filters when needed appropriately. Next I start to address dynamic problems with instruments and bring out natural luster and pump to instruments.Now I start using delays for instrument or vocals that are a focal point having a few slap back delays and echos. I also start automation to bring a chorus to slam in or bringing up lead instruments. Now I give reverb appropriately and giving dimension and even feeding delays into reverbs to give even more space in each track.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The most dimension and space you can achieve and providing a effect rich song without drowning in effects.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being able to use effects effectively and in an unique way which stands out of other mixes.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Heavy Metal and electronic at the moment but working on some more rock oriented stuff.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to experiment with everything. I can't tell you how many times I have stumbled across something cool just by being creative. I do always love the saying that some restrictions are a good thing since they make you think on how to achieve what you want without high end gear
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: It is very creative and unique with no one instrument or voice left boring.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been doing this for about 3 years and am loving every minute. I do hope to commit to it full time and get more compensation for hard work and dedication .
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If you want your music to stand out from all others not just loudness but also space and dimension for everything.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What would want your music to sound like as in an artist whose mix you like whether It be a certain vocal mix or effect to overall mix of the song.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Why not use both but don't let one or the other dictate where the vision ends. Use it like a seasoning not too much of either but just enough of both.
