Interview with Stefano Crispino
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Last Idontexist album. I love him. He raps differently than the other rappers, and his two producers are wonderful. I've recorded some songs of the album, and I've mixed all songs. I'm waiting to work on his new stuff!!!! I highly recommend you give it a listen on spotify.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm mixing some downtempo songs. I've never mixed this genre and I'm enjoying it very much!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Vincenzo Scognamiglio - Mixing & Mastering engneer. No doubt.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hybrid. I think that today with digital you can get a perfect record product. At least as far as the mixing phase is concerned. For the acquisition phase such as recording, digital helps a lot, but the hardware is necessary to obtain a professional result, preamps, microphones, maybe even signal processors such as compressors, equalizers etc. So as I wrote in my degree thesis, compared to years ago today it is possible to obtain optimal results even "in the box".
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: As I said, I love what I do, and I put the same effort into every job I get. This is my promise.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The possibility of dealing with many different people, and with completely different visions of music from time to time. And then let's face it, for a music lover what could be better than being able to listen to music in the way he prefers?
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: If it is possible to achieve a result equal to certain singers. My answer is that everyone has a different voice and way of interpreting so it is almost impossible. Developing your musical identity is the key!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: In Italy there is little education in listening, many people even ignore the existence of my work. Just as many people think I can do magic, I'm not a wizard but just a sound engineer!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Initially I ask to be involved in their vision of the song we are going to work on, I try to understand their points of view and what they have in mind. I ask which approach they prefer, whether creative or purely technical (it can happen that a customer is annoyed by creative post production), and I ask for references, because many times those who are inspired by a specific genre unconditionally want a result like the most important songs in the world.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Very often those who are not in the spotlight put more love in what they do than the firm leaders of the sector, always speaking with respect! I love what I do, and I put the same effort both when I have a big job on my hands and when I do a favor to a friend.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: -My Neumann NDH 20 -An Uad audio interface -Laptop with Pro Tools and my plug-ins -Small speakers -An internet connection!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started a bit for fun in 2009. I've been mixing songs seriously since 2013. I attended the conservatory specializing as a sound engineer and today is my work and my passion.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I love sound cleanliness. Crystal HIgh end with warmth and right saturation is the key.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Kendrick Lamar, Drake and J.Cole. Because they determine a lot my preferred genre.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Be essential, not overdo. It is useless. And the most important thing is to use high quality sounds. Remember: Sh*t in Sh*t out!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I've started with Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap, R&B. But I work often to electronic productions, Jazz, Pop and Acoustic.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Mixing. I am obsessed with music, order and creative methodology.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: First of all my personal taste and my vision of how that song can sound and place itself among the world standards of that genre. Then I also need the vision of my clients, everyone sees music in their own way and the exchange of ideas and opinions in this field is the most important thing.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Each song needs to be treated in a different way, although the workflow is influenced by my skills and my taste there is no typical working process for me. I live this work as if I were a musician, try asking a guitarist about his work process, he probably won't be able to answer you.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Usually I work in digital. I'm a Pro Tools user. I use an Uad audio interface, yamaha speakers, and neumann, sennheiser, bayerdynamics and audio-technica headphones.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love MixedbyAli, he is a role model, his works are wonderful. but there are many engineers who inspires me, as Jaycen Joshua, Leslie Braithwaite, Noah Shebib, Mike Dean, Manny Marroquin, Tony Maserati and many other.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I'm a mixing engineer, I take care of post production, editing, mixing and mastering operations.
