Interview with Seraphym Audio
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Tamy Steven's album, "The Inbetween." She is my daughter, so I'm obviously proud of her. But she's also very picky and wanted everything on that album exactly how it came out. I'm very proud we accomplished that.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Outfitting and upgrading my studio. Always a work in progress.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long is this going to take? It depends on the quality of your recording and production, but I always try to turn around mixes as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality. How much will this cost? See my listed rates, but it does depend a lot on the number of tracks and workload involved.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity. I bring musicality. I bring 30+ years of experience to the signature sound that I have worked to create.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process with clients comes in these 6 steps described on my website: https://www.seraphymaudio.com/book-a-mix Once I get the organized stems and reference tracks from my client, then I organize the workspace and go to work! Mixing is a very creative process for me. I really try to keep the musicality of every production by not over-compressing but I also will do what the client wants to achieve the sound you are after.
