Interview with Nathan Music
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The school project I was apart of with the sample track above where I was the mixing engineer. I was extremely proud of how it came out.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm currently working on some covers for myself.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new here.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog, while analog has it's downsides, the analog EQ, compression, reverb and delay are out of this world.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: A professional quality mix and ample communication. It will be worth every penny.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love all the different type of music I get to work with and enjoy.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long the mixing will take. On an average, 2-3 days.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That as a mixer, I can make bad song writing sound good just by mixing it. There is only so much I can help with at that point.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What song or producer would you like this song to sound like? What is the deadline? Do they have any rough mixes?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't hesitate to ask questions or give ideas, I'm open to just about everything, and luckily I don't bite, covid, duh.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: If we are talking music gear, a guitar, an amp, a distortion pedal, a generator, and a lot of gas. If we are talking survival, probably just food, water, clothes. I am a simple man.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been mixing for 2 years, I started in highschool mixing concerts of my school band and transferred to local bands after high school.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I am really laid back and like to get input from the artists, to stay in sync with the view of the project.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Metallica of course, they are my idols.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always set a time limit for a mix and after that time is up, stop thinking about it, and return the next day. That is the way I avoid overthinking a mix.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on Rock and Country music as that is the majority of bands around my area.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I like to help the artist get the sounds they desire, even if that sound isn't what I would recommend, it's the artists song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I can provide robust drum sounds and chunky guitar sounds that don't become muddy. I am also not afraid to try new things and take suggestions.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually ask for references for the sound the artist is trying to achieve so I can become familiar with the sound I need to produce, and then I usually send multiple demos before the final product to make sure we are on the same page.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a macbook pro that runs Pro Tools and Logic Pro X, I have a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 that connects to my 2 studio speakers on either side of my desk.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Metallica, Slipknot, and Jamey Johnson are big influences on me artist-wise. And Bob Rock, Greg Fidelman, Rick Rubin, and Brandy Clark are big influences for production.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly mix but can master if the need arises.
