Interview with David Romo
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
I (and everybody) make a lot of mistakes at work but I think I know the way to fix them or even to avoid them soon enough.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Before hiring talk with the producer about 5 bands/artist you like to sound like. If the producer doesn't know about 3 of them is not your man.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Laptop, headphones, SM58, SM57, acoustic guitar
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I start recording my own songs on Cool Edit Pro 2 around 2000 then I moved to Cubase ant later to Pro Tools and made songs for pop singers, hip-hop artist and produce some rock bands from my hometown. In the last years I been a live musician and made my country project albums.

What do you bring to a song?
What's your typical work process?
When I produce a song I like to start working with the main vocals, bass and drums. When I find the point I'm looking for, I continue with the rest of the arrangements. The same for mixing.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I use Logic X and Live 9 as DAW's, Yamaha piano, Ibanez and Fender guitars, Focusrite interfaces and pre-amps, Tannoy speakers and a lot of stuff that make music and some cool plug-ins to make a pro work.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I love a full range of different styles of music. I use to prefer indie artist and producers but always there's some top 40 songs that catch me.
