Interview with Phil Brady

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

  2. A: I'm currently recording a solo album under the pseudonym Little Cricket. The unnamed album will consist of 10+ tracks of witty pop rock.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Digital. There's nothing wrong with analog recording, just like there's nothing wrong with listening to vinyl records, but my digital studio setup allows me to work efficiently while providing a product of comparable quality.

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

  6. A: Listen to my portfolio. If you think it matches up with what you're looking for, give me a shout!

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

  8. A: Computer, recording interface, headphones, midi controller, and Gibson SG

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: Poppy, bright, airy

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

  12. A: Mix in mono.

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

  14. A: Pop, punk, rock, and folk

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: My strongest skill is knowing where to place tracks in the stereo field to create space and allow each instrument to occupy its own place in the mix.

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

  18. A: Before the mastering phase, I go through the entire song and make automation adjustments to level, pan, and plug-ins to keep the song alive and interesting during each and every section.

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

  20. A: First I adjust levels and pans to make sure every track has its place in the mix and can be heard. Then I use subtle EQ and compression to carve the tone of the tracks and give them some life. Finally I use reverb and delay sparingly to give depth where needed. I complete most of my mixing in mono, to ensure that my plug-in choices are appropriate for the entire mix, not just the left or right channel. I may use minimal EQ and compression during the mastering phase, but most importantly I limit the master to bring the whole mix up to a competitive level before I bounce the file.

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

  22. A: J. Robbins, Chad Clark, Steve Albini, Ian MacKaye, Ben Folds, Eric Bachmann, Travis Morrison
