Interview with Jack X
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Give me the best possible material to work with and I will try my hardest to make it into amazing master tracks.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Mostly digital. Digital saves your last used settings and is the best method for the genres of music I work with.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Computer, Computer Screens, Microphone collection, Audio interface, My vintage equipment, keyboard interface.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Mid 2012 custom built Mac Pro Tower, Keylab 49 key controller, Behringer Firepower FCA 1616 audio interface, specialized collection of plugins, microphone collection.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working with different vocal/music styles.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How do I... normally I will answer the question to the best of my ability. After so many questions I will recommend hiring me.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: People think that all producers do is make beats.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: what is the Budget? What do you want to get out of working with me? (example is it an album or single track.) Is it full service or just mixing/mastering? What is your instrument of choice?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Do not simply rely on Youtube videos. they are a great way to get started but will not replace a professional who knows what he/she is doing.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Started out as a vocalist for cover bands. I became more interested in the console side of recording. I recorded as a hobby for awhile until making the decision to turn the hobby into a full time career.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Sarah Brightman, Love her vocals.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Mix at a lower volume. If the mix sounds good at a lower volume more then likely it will sound good at a higher volume as well.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: electronic music, but I work on everything vocal based.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: editing and mixing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Out of the box editing/mixing method.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: So many. One has been Junkie XL, he moved from strictly electronic music to becoming one of the most sought after scoring specialists for films. Vangelis, I grew up being amazed by Blade Runner and it was the music that did so. Giorgio Moroder, if you don't recognize the name then simply you don't understand the history of electronic music. A few current DJ's as my work is involved in the DJ culture. Classic rock and heavy metal artists as I grew up on the two genres.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Many of my clients I work with one on one. I tend to guide the process as we work as that is the job of a producer. Other clients send me either a full session or stems to edit/mix down then master. Either way my clients tend to give me free reign to edit and mix as I please.
