Interview with m4sp4s

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

  2. A: Well, coming to a utopian world one of the artists I would like to work with would be with Marcus Miller. But many emerging artists are liking me and I would love to work as J3PO (Julian Pollack)

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

  4. A: Listen, many times. And once I have what I would like to do, I record it and modify it according to how I like it. If you do not have anything recorded, what I do is interview the client to find out what he would like most to do. Sound, tempo, tones, formulas, etc.

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

  6. A: What I usually do are beats, and I record keyboards.

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

  8. A: Well, I have 2 bands that we do Funk. Pimps and Octaloop's. We released an album with each of them and both are available on YouTube and Bandcamp. I leave the links: https://pimps.bandcamp.com/album/pimps https://octaloops.bandcamp.com/album/octazzapi

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

  10. A: Right now funk, but there is always jazz behind. Trap I am also starting to listen and well, produce too.

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

  12. A: Not really. But every time I get on the page I will find and recommend it surely.

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Analag and digital. You have to achieve the ideal combination between those two

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

  16. A: If you agree to work with me, I will do it, I do not promise you that you like it, that depends on each one, but if I am going to give priority to it and I am going to dedicate my whole being to its work.

  17. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  18. A: Usually I ask the questions, it's fun to say, but I think what they sometimes ask me is if I'm going to take too long or if I'm going to accept improvements. Of course I accept improvements, I'm not perfect, nobody is, and as for the work time it will take, it all depends on the track, but I usually do it fast.

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

  20. A: I think one of the things that I have to improve is to be able to listen and choose when to stop.

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

  22. A: Generally I ask if it has any sound to achieve (I mean a sound similar to an artist), however what I like the most to be told is: I want to sound like me. I also usually ask if he wants a more rhythmic style, calmer and many more, it is a talk that depends on the wave between the client and me.

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

  24. A: If someone wants to work with me, they must want to work seriously. Without lack of respect and with very good vibes.

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

  26. A: Without a doubt: Audio interface, polyphonic synthesizer, headphones, cell phone with a lot of loaded music and a computer.

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

  28. A: I have been working with music for 11 years. However trying to live to the fullest of the music 4 years ago, learning something every day. Very important to try to learn something every day.

  29. Q: How would you describe your style?

  30. A: My style would define it as modern, but with little hints of funk and Jazz-Rocl from the 70s and 80s.

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

  32. A: Being original is important. Achieve your own sound and when someone hears you say: that's m4sp4s!

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

  34. A: Jazz is the genre that I like the most, but in recent years I have been working on LoFi, Hip-Hop, Trap, Rap music. And I have two bands that we do Funk with, which is another of the genres that I like the most.

  35. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  36. A: My best skills are keyboards and synthesizers. I have had experience with this for 11 years. I also mix, record, edit, play bass, but I don't have as much experience with keyboards and synthesizers anymore.

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

  38. A: What seems fundamental to me that every song must have (obviously depending on the genre but generally in my works it does) is the air. That the song can breathe is very important so that everything sounds more organic. I also like to get good bass, I usually do it with synthesizers but sometimes I also grab the electric bass and try to generate air. I think that the bass line and the drums (or the beat) are the instruments that can most generate this air, space and the ones that I like the most powerful to sound.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: My equipment in my studio increases quality every time, little by little. 5 years ago I bought my first "synthesizer", the Yamaha MOXF-8, I used it more than 50 times live and I still use it, an incredible keyboard. Last year I bought a Reface CS, also from Yamaha, a very inspiring keyboard to compose and I also recommend it to learn synthesis. I also have the UNO Synth from Ik Multimedia and the XW-P1 from Casio. I use several pedals, my favorite brand is the MXR and Chase Bliss. I have been working with a Steinberg UR44C for a year, very nice interface and it is very useful for what I do. 4 months ago I bought my first studio monitors that are JBL 305 Mkii. As for DAW I use Cubase 10.5 PRO and Ableton Live Suite 10. Probe Pro Tools 12, however these two are the ones I liked the most. As for Plugins I use several brands, the main ones are FabFilter, Waves, Acustica, Valhalla, Softube, Izotope and many more...

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

  42. A: The artist who I think shaped my life was Joe Zawinul (with Weather Report, Syndicate, Miles, etc ...) Also Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius, Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Miles Davis. And speaking from my country, Argentina, Luis Alberto Spinetta always manages to inspire me, Gustavo Cerati and a number of countless excellent musicians that luckily my country brought out. Luckily I have very varied musical tastes and I could spend a month naming idols.

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

  44. A: All. Especially the recording procces.
