Interview with Joshua Frawley

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Recent projects for Rockgu here on soundbetter because it was a great experience working with him and he was very happy with the results.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Currently working on a rock/metal album of own, and just finished a couple projects working with Rockgu here on soundbetter

  5. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  6. A: Clients ask for specific mix requests, specific songs to use as reference, minor mix revisions, and the answer is always yes.

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: Music has been a life long obsession for me. I have always done something with it whether it was writing my own songs, playing in bands, or recording and mixing for others.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: After I receive tracks to be mixed from a client, I import them into my DAW and get to work mixing. I prefer yo mix from the bottom up going from individual tracks, then to sub mixes, then to stems, then to the master fader. From there I export the mix and dump it into a master project where I get the overall mix sounding competitive as far as tonal balance and loudness.

  11. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  12. A: Bobby Torres, Graham Cochrane

  13. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  14. A: if you dont have access to a studio, record your tracks in a dead sounding space with little to no background noise. also be sure to avoid clipping when recording. a quieter signal is better than clipping that cannot be fixed later.

  15. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  16. A: a pair of monitors, an pair of headphones, an 8 channel audio interface, an sm57,

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: i strive for loud, wide, and clear mixes with enough punchy dynamics and warmth

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: I mix and master entirely in the box with analog warmth added in with plugins

  21. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  22. A: Any talented artist in the heavy genres. Im a fan of the music and enjoy helping bring it to life.

  23. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  24. A: Over time ive learned that less is more when it comes to EQ and not to use EQ just for the sake of it.

  25. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  26. A: Heavy rock and metal genres

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Mixing

  29. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  30. A: A well balanced mix with plenty of volume, punch, and clarity.

  31. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  32. A: Jordan Valeriote, Bobby Torres, Andy Wallace, Chris Lord-Alge

  33. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  34. A: Mixing and mastering

  35. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  36. A: Digital. Nothing against analog ive just mixed entirely in the box from the beginning and dont feel a need for analog equipment. I believe that achieving a good mix is more about workflow, techniques, skills and experience and less about the gear being used.

  37. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  38. A: I promise to do whatever it takes to achieve the best quality mix and/or master that i can every time.

  39. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  40. A: Mixing heavy music. I love mixing heavy tracks together to make them sound glued together, polished, present, and punchy.

  41. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  42. A: The need for analog gear. These days you can achieve a decent mix with just a DAW and a handful of stock plugins. Its more about learning how to properly use the tools that you have.

  43. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  44. A: Do you have any mix requests? Are there any songs that you would like me to reference?
