Interview with Billy Hunt
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
