Interview with Architech
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I was very proud when I first finished up my first 13 song album. I was able to take an artist's crazy vision and effectively develop a sound that can compete in their market as well as dip into others. I didn't even cave with the amount of pressure I was under to get it done ASAP with all the revisions and edits.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Working with @benzotheking for his first project.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not as of now.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: It depends. If you have a full studio and can afford analog go for it. A lot of new producers can't afford it and digital is so cost effective and easy to work with.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: A product that can compete and stand out.
Q: What do you like most about your job?

A: Q: Why is working with you so effortless? A: I go out of my way to understand you.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

A: Who are you? What have you been through? What are you capable of? What is your mission?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: There's a whole lot of producers out here. Some are amazing, some are ok. Find the one that can take you to the next level.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, Interface, Monitors, Guitar, Microphone.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Start by laying out the goals and then the steps to get there. I'll sit and get to know the artist to figure out how to take their personality and get that across in the sonic realm.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Minimalistic and in the box for. I've been trained in "Human over Hardware" but when I need more equipment, I have several friends with thousands of dollars worth of outboard gear.
