Interview with Alexei Paredes

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Various projects.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both are good. Analog is warm and true, and digital is modern and commercial.

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

  6. A: I'll give you an excellent job. You can be sure!

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

  8. A: The possibility of creating nuances that make all the difference.

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

  10. A: Play in your sound, without fear. The music is made of that brilliant moment; they are marked forever.

  11. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  12. A: My MacBook, DX7, phones, MIDI and audio interfaces.

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

  14. A: I graduated in keyboard, piano and arrangement by CIGAM, in Rio de Janeiro. It's 20 years of experience.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Eclectic.

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

  18. A: The Wailers. I love reggae music, man!

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

  20. A: Try it all. Record multiple takes. Stick with the one that is your sound.

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: Reggae, pop, rock and worship.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: Synths (leads and pads, I love it), keyboards (organs mainly) and piano are my strong points.

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

  26. A: The experience of more than 20 years on stage and recordings. I know exactly what works and what doesn't in a song.

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

  28. A: Usually I receive the music with just the voice and an instrument. I always ask them to send the beat, but that's not always possible. From this material, I begin my creative process.

  29. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  30. A: I always finish my tracks in Logic. I love the sound of this DAW. I can even start with Ableton or Bitwig, but I'll finish with Logic. I use FM sounds a lot, I'm passionate about this synthesis; my DX7 and plugins like Dexed and Arturia's DX7 V are almost mandatory in any production.

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

  32. A: Aston Barret Jr., Manudigital, Johnny Essi, Peter James, Fabrício Martins, Jaime Hinckson and more.

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

  34. A: I usually record keyboard and synth tracks in online sessions. In the studio I work not only as a musician, but mainly as a producer and arranger.
