2 ReviewsEndorse Tacid Lane
We needed a good mastering engineer to finish our first album. We got really lucky that a friend did recommend Tacid Lane studios for this. We had a very good experience. A lot of communication and discussion about the different tracks, album vibe and overall view of our project.
We can't say enough good stuff about the quality of service and of course the quality of the mastered tracks !
A real pleasure !
Great job ! Very good communication. The video call Wass very nice and really helped to explain what I wanted my EP to sound like. The overall service was great.
The final product is of great quality and I will gladly come back for my next EP
Interview with Tacid Lane
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The project I am the most proud of is my music label and my studio !
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A lot of things ;)
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Honestly there are a lot of great people here, go check out the review ;-)
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. There is no argument to made. People that say Analog is always better are just ignorant. Nobody cares about the difference as long as the work is well done and sounds great.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: A great communication and of course a great result.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It never gets boring, every day and client is different.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Why would I pay you instead of taking an online mastering service like Landr or soundcloud? Because if you want something that really suits you and your music you will need a real Human to do the job and to communicate with you !
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Easy : Mastering Engineers just make stuff sound louder, there is no knowledge required.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: A whole lot ! But here are a few : his influences? What he likes the sound of? The goal of the master (streaming, CD, vinyle)?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To communicate as much as he can so I can translate his vision to his tracks. The clearer the communication the better the result.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Tough one : my Macbook Pro, Apollo twin X, Focal Solo 6 BE, Elektron Octatrack, Prophet 6
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Well I am an audio engineer since 2010, and I started way before that with music production (2003 'ish). So it has been way too long ;)
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I work mostly on a feeling. Of course I have tools I love to give it the sound I think suits best.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: the list os way to long, but I always love to work with new artists because every vision is different
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Of course : stop compressing the hell out of everything
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly electronic music. But I worked a lot on Pop Rock and Metal during the years
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Really depends on what the artist want the song to be. Usually I always try make the song sound good as possible.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For mastering it's always a lot of listening. Then I start to clean up the audio if necessary before proceeding to giving the sound some character and make it alive !
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: That would be way too long. Let's just say it's a nice setup that has proven itself.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I think one of my favorite music production gurus is Hannes Bieger. For his sound design and overall knowledge.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
