Interview with Aaron C Schroeder
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
All projects give me something different to be proud of. There is no session Ive done that I have not been proud to be a part of.
What are you working on at the moment?
Tenderfoot EP, Sharkie LP, The Dumps LP & The King Of Pop LPs
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Dyan Wall, Nate Kruz
Analog or digital and why?
both. every song can easily have both. Digital is cheaper than tape but analog helps with color.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
4 track, drum machine, Nord Lead 2, Coles 4038, power generator
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I have been recording bands since I was in High School, 16+ years, and professionally since the age of 20.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I tend to work on music based in the rock or pop realms, but have branched out into more avant & ambient work.
What's your typical work process?
I tend to like to visit the band in practices to talk about each song with them in person. I also go to shows to see them live to better get a feel of the energy of the band.
Tell us about your studio setup.
All my gear is racked up in road cases so I am able to take it anywhere, be that a traditional studio environment, Church, basement or bar. Im running ProTools 12 w/ UA Apollo 16 & do final mix down to tape.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I mainly focus on EP & LP production/engineering/mixing. I take care of location scouting and budget assessment to make sure artists get the best bang for their buck.
