Interview with Future Plan Sounds
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: We have around 20 artists in our record label publishing every month around 4/5 new tracks.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hybrid, but mostly analog
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Putting all efforts as if the track was one of mine
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being exposed to artists and new music everyday
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That we can turn out bad songs into masterpieces
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Explain what kind of sound you are looking for, which are your preferred artists, which are your preferred tracks and what kind of processing you use and the vision of the track. In summary, the more we talk, exchange information, ideas and vision, the more we get involved into that piece of music and we put all the effort to make it great
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Sontec EQ , AMS Nece 33609 Compressor, SSL 4000 Channel strip, Tube-Tech CL1B, Bricasti M7
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Started in the 80s as musician (mainly guitar and vocals), established my own record label in 2017 and offering mixing/mastering services to all record label artists
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: FUTURE PLANNER SOUND
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Innovative producers having creative sounds they craft with analog gear. It's very common to receive tracks full of samples, nothing bad with it, but I tend to like and prefer artists crafting their own sound and having a very clear signature in whatever they do
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I tend to limit the in the box treatment, to very transparent EQs and parallel dynamic processing on busses. Then I route busses to my analog gear to add that warmth and silkness to get to a Record
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: EDM and Rock
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being a producer myself, most of the times, in agreement with the producer of the track, we agree on certain minor tweaks of the tracks to keep the flow and get to commercial standards
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to keep the original sound of the producer but getting to a very transparent mix, allowing a quite loud master after that
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I normally try to limit in the box processing to very transparent EQ and parallel dynamic treatment. Everything else is carried out on busses where I apply my analog gear
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I mix on a SSL Matrix 2 console patched to various analog EQs, Compressors and FXs. I put all mixes I receive in my Cibase template where I have designed specific treatments for drums, bass, vocals using external gear to keep quite high standards in the output
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and mastering of EDM tracks
