Q: Can you share one music production tip?

A: Trapsoul 2019
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: A lot of great people.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been making music my whole life. That's ~30 years. I learned how to mix, so I could mix my own music. One day I realized that most of my producers friends want me to mix their songs. Two years later I found Soundbetter :)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Distressor or Avalon...Maybe some porto-studio. Prophet, MPC. Pair of really good speakers and Slate's Microphones set. I don't mention laptop & stuff but it depends on what you call "Gear" ;)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have STEMS of your instrumental. It makes more difference than anything. Have your voice recorded properly. Have it all DRY and uncompressed. And finally - no mp3's. It's also great to have a reference of what the song should sound like more or less:) It can be 3 songs - "drums like this 1", "vocals like here", "everything more like this 1". It actually helps.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: References; tracking, processing, bus-routing; effects & multi-band side-chain, compression, mastering; gain-staging & automation all along the way.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: If I can do a demo-mix. If I have more samples of my work.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask about music they like. If there's a song which my client wants his/her song to sound like, I need to know about it.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Under 1K$/per song I'm the best to mix TrapSoul/FutureSoul type of music. I can easily name you 3 top-level mixing engineers who'll probably do it better, but their pricing model is waay different.
