Interview with Everything Is Done Mastering

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I do digital mastering

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

  4. A: I worked on several projects at the art institute using experimental studio techniques, and one where I used an old Moog modular synth. I learned how to use DAT and A-DAT machines, Protools, a Mackie mixer. Times have changed and I don't usually use that stuff anymore, but I am proud to say I have a basis in traditional recording setups. I have even used a 4 track reel to reel doing some dub experiments.

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

  6. A: I am working on an album called Rooms that features the sounds of a living room, a bedroom, a kitchen, a living room, a rehearsal space, and a deck. I amplify, eq, and distort these sounds making them sound interesting and/or at times, terrifying!

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

  8. A: I am new to this site.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: I like both. Sometimes if a track is sounding overly harsh or digital, a bounce to tape is welcome. Doesn't always need it though. I have done plenty of mastering using only digital tools.

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

  12. A: We will arrive at a solution that best suits your needs, tailored to your own tastes.

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

  14. A: It has always been my dream to work in music production, so I am living my dream.

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

  16. A: How long will it take? Usually within a week.

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

  18. A: that it is easy and fun, it is not easy and not always fun.

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

  20. A: What are your goals for this track? How do you want it to sound? Where was it recorded?

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

  22. A: You would be helping out someone not associated with a big studio and I will give you the full attention you need to achieve the best results.

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

  24. A: your track should have dynamics while not being overproduced

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

  26. A: rock, metal, jazz, experimental, electronic

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: I will tune a track almost like someone would tune a guitar or drumset. The mastering process is important and all elements need to be working together.

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

  30. A: I will breathe life into the song and won't leave your performances sounding flat.
