Interview with Paul Sultana
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I've always done my own music from start to finish and I'm very proud of that.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently, 3 of my original songs, a 17 song (ridiculous) worship project, and helping my friend record and mix his Christmas album.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not yet.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital with analog modeling because analog gear is overpriced and not a single person (fan) can hear the difference.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will give you 100% and do what I can to make sure you are satisfied with my work.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working with fellow musicians.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much do you charge? I always keep my rate low because I believe it shouldn't be so expensive to make music that you may see a big return on (financially).
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That only top name professionals can make great music and share it with the world.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Are you doing what you want musically? Do you feel the freedom to do that? I can help you with that.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Do it! Don't wait to make your music and share it with the world! People don't care if it's perfect, they just want to share in it with you. Work with as many people as you can and never let music be about competition. AND only work with people that make you feel good about what you're doing.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Tacoma dreadnought. What else do you need? Plus, there wouldn't be electricity so...
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Music has always been a passion and a pet project since I got my first guitar at the age of 11. Over the last 7 years I've been slowly turning it into a career.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Kind of old school but with a hint of rebellion to make things different.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Damien Rice or Travis because I think we have a lot in common musically.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't overproduce - less is more.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Anything from folk, acoustic, singer-songwriter to alternative, rock, pop. And occasionally classical/instrumental, and heavier stuff.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm not limited by what other people tell me I have to do and my instincts are pretty spot on.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I believe in a less-is-more approach to just about everything, but especially music. The average fan these days doesn't want to be bombarded (they get enough of that in life). They want music that feels good and natural and moves them as humans, not as machines. I bring that real-life element to music.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Edit>Tune>Quantize>Gain stage>Top down mix>Check list>Master>Happy customer!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I run an all digital setup on a Mac Book Pro using an Audient iD14 into Presonus Studio One 5 Pro. I've got a set of Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pros and a pair of Swissonic ASM7s. I record acoustic guitar with a sweet tube condenser mic, and bass and electric guitar I run through Amplitube 4. I use analog modeling plugins for that warm analog sound.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love Travis, KT Tunstall, Mumford and Sons, Snow Patrol, and basically any 90's alternative music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Everything from producing, guitar and bass tracking to mixing and mastering.
