Billy continues to impress our band with his work and decided he is well worth the money for full album!
Billy did a very nice job on our mix. He was very proactive, quick and wanted to understand our vision of the song. He did an excellent job! We will for sure use him in the future.
Billy did a great job helping me get better tones for my music. I would recommend him to any of my friends looking for someone to mix their records.
Interview with Billy Hunt
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I do not know anybody yet
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The first thing I do after going over things with the artist is organize all of the tracks and figure the best way to route the session. If I'm doing drums, I make a kit (with SSD5) tailored specifically to the artist so they have their own "sound" per se.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first and only paid project was done this year and I was so ecstatic to mix these two songs, and I couldn't help but puff my chest out in pride a little bit when talking to the bassist, who seems to have loved the work done.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I just worked on two songs off of an album.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To always communicate and put the clients needs FIRST. My opinion is second to the clients.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Music! Music is my life, I just want to elevate people and help them achieve the sound they are trying to show the world.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: What genre do I normally work with. I tell them I have a metal and rock background, but have learned a thing or two about the electronic side of music from school.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask if the client already has a certain vision, and if there is anything that they can share so I can help understand and achieve that vision.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be open with communication. My style revolves around a vision for the music, and I want to achieve that for each client so they can walk away happy.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I prefer analog but I do see/enjoy the benefits of digital. I will not shy away from what a project needs solely based on the personal preference of myself. However I am entirely digital due to space and finances. I will eventually work my way to analog though.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Oli Herbert from All That Remains is and will probably always be my biggest inspiration.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: This isn't for everybody. I have seen a lot of engineers work flows so this isn't the end all be all, but organization pre mix is a big deal for me. I have a very systematic approach to how I mix and what I mix, and I decide all of that by the time I organize the project and do my fader balances.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I mostly do Rock/Metal.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Keeping the vibe of the song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I can bring a lot of ideals, and I really enjoy working off of the vibe of the song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have an extremely modest setup right now as I am just getting started. I can not offer the ability to track out your vocals, and instruments. I can however mix your song and will communicate with you in order to achieve your desired sound.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That we are essentially the Artist. I get the "did you write this?" question from family and friends all of the time.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I joined the Army when I was 19 after working with music for 5 years as a musician in a metal band. I've played shows, I started self teaching myself to mix. But I ran into financial hardships, so I turned my head to the military. I couldn't seem to find my place. and after moving from job to job (after my contract with the Army ended) I decided to repursue being an Audio Engineer as that's the only thing I've ever truly enjoyed doing.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Musician style would be early 2000's to 2010 metalcore. Mixing, I'm always developing my workflow to be better so I can't really say that I have a set style as I may botch a process that I do for something better by the end of the week! lol
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Oli Herbert, Joey Sturgis, Nik Hippa, James Hetfield, Killrbuckeye, MusicMan1066
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly mix metal and rock music, but have worked with hip hop, rap, and genres similar to these with artists who primarily focus on these genres
