Interview with VoxHound Productions

Can you share one music production tip?
Let your ears guide you. Have one listening session with your screen turned off.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I will normally work on Rock and Metal, however I have been credited on some Prog and alternative work.
What do you bring to a song?
I would like to think that I bring my experience together with the artist’s vision to create something with both me and the artist are happy with.
What's your typical work process?
I like to start by listening through the track once. I will then start making any corrections to the tracks such as trimming the start and ends or removing any obvious anomalies. After this I will balance the tracks so that I am fairly happy with the levels, and then have a couple of passes just listening with my computer monitors of. This allows my ears to hear what corrections, if any need making. After a couple of listens I will get to work making any necessary adjustments. After this I will have another pass balancing the track to how I think it should sound. Then a final listen before sending the track of for the artist’s comments.
Tell us about your studio setup.
A nice home studio setup with a treated room. This creates a comfortable and accurate listening environment for me, that I can trust.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Andy Sneap has been a massive influence on me alongside Adam Dutkiewicz. Their production work for Rock and Metal is a personal favourite of mine.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Mostly mixing and mastering combined.
