Interview with Great Lakes Audio Co.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I prefer Analog over digital. While I understand that both have their advantages over one another, and that they both can have their place in a project. I like Analog because it is what I grew up using.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise to my clients is to always provide service that is quick, professional, and that caters to the clients needs and expectations.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I would say the best part of the job is being able to hear new music that hasn't been released yet.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask what kind of sound they are going for, often I ask for reference audio to compare what is being worked on with what the client expectations are.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would say that anyone can produce audio, but mixing and mastering and even recording can be a lot like playing an instrument. If you want high quality recordings, mixes, and masters, then it is best to leave those jobs to people who have developed their production "chops".
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I would say a good tip in music production would be to preserve what hearing you can.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I like to focus on blues, jazz, and rock. I am open to many genera but I feel like these are the most familiar to me.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Critical listening is something that I feel is very important throughout the recording and editing processes. I would say this is my number one priority when keeping my skills sharp.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a trained, fresh set of ears to a song, that are always evaluating what processes would bring out the best in a song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My main programs I use to mix and master are, Pro Tools, Ozone, RX5.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I could list a bunch of musicians or engineers that inspire me, but I would say that what inspires me most is local musicians and undiscovered talent. I love hearing up and coming bands and musicians and help them get the best possible sound.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My most common type of work is mixing. I have also been getting more into Mastering.
