Interview with Mixtheus

  1. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  2. A: Movement and emotion! That's what this is all about. I like to enhance what the artist and the producer are proposing with the project and bring a little bit of me as well, as long as this helps the artist to express what he wants.

  3. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  4. A: Each work I do as an engineer for Levi Keniata (producer and artist) is an awesome experience and I have no words to express how proud and honored I am to be a part of it!

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Nando Costa is a great mixing and mastering engineer that helped me a lot, he's great!

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Why not the best out of both worlds?

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I can promise one thing: They'll have the best out of me always!

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: The everyday challenge. The mixes that I have to find a way to achieve something specifically that is on my mind or the artist / producer minds are the best ones.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: I think that the biggest misconception is that mixing and mastering do miracle.These processes are of course a key for a good sounding song or album, but they depend directly of the material that is been given to the mix/master engineer. So a good song, good arrangement, good performance and a good production and recording are the key to a great mixing and mastering.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: What does he expect about the mixing or mastering process and what I can do to help him to achieve this goal.

  17. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  18. A: Try to find somebody who is not only here to give you a good sound quality, but someone who understand what are your needs and helps you to get there.

  19. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  20. A: I'm a musician for over a decade now and I started to get involved into music production about 6 years ago, but I'm 100% dedicated to it in the past 3 years. I am currently in graduation into Music Production.

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: Definitely I like to work in a way that the mix is like a character in the song. I’m not afraid of trying different things and I usually try to make the best balance between my taste and what the song needs.

  23. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  24. A: There are definitely a lot haha I want to state that I like challenges I love working with artists that are trying to bring something new.

  25. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  26. A: Always do the best you can in the moment, regardless of what you have available!

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: I believe that my strongest skill is to make mix decisions (or mastering for that matter) that will enhance what the song is trying to translate.

  29. Q: What's your typical work process?

  30. A: When I'm mixing, I try to do all the editing and session preparation beforehand, so I can focus on what is more important during the mixing process. I like to discuss with the producer and/or artist about what they expect from the mixing process, aesthetic-wise and ideas of things that I can do that could improve even more their production. When I’m mastering, first of all I try to understand the language, colors and intentions of the album or song that is going to be mastered. I like to discuss with the producer as well about what they expect about the mastering process and to have a good relationship with the mix engineer, respect his work and make an effort to make the best translation of his work. Sometimes I ask the mix engineer for a recall, so we can really have the best result out of the project.

  31. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  32. A: As an engineer, Bruce Swedien is my main inspiration. You can definitely see his passion when he is talking about audio, and some of the things he said sitcks with me and I apply constantly in my daily job.

  33. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  34. A: I offer mixing and mastering services, mainly in-the-box.
