Interview with Renaud (Mix & Master Studio)
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: both, I think the analog brings a unique texture depending on the chain you choose, but digital brings to current productions techniques and sounds that are impossible to achieve in the analog world. Why choose a world when the universe is open to you?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think for the youngest producers it's the fact that we do magic that changes for example a bad piano sound into a perfect piano sound! or even a bad interpretation in perfect performance. but it's all a matter of taste and as long as you like music then it's the most important
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: It depends on the production and its progress. But often it's: where do you see your music played and what is the benchmark you want to approach. Sometimes, and if I find that the music lacks important elements, I suggest some production improvements. It all depends on the level and the end goal of my client. The best is to talk about it together
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure that the one you choose understands your music and is inspired by it. if he feels it then he will surely bring the missing finishes in the best possible way. Pay close attention to your export of separate tracks and if you have any doubts, don't hesitate to ask me!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started as a DJ at the end of 90, then at the beginning of 2000 I started production in a more serious way, surrounding myself with machines such as mpc, korg m1, DX7, electribe, and software, reason first then protools and logic to finally adopted ableton. In 2008 I created with my cousins the studio la Farinière (in the south of France) as well as several rehearsal studios and a music production school. Since then I continue to perform as a DJ but spend a lot of time in the studio and bring my skills to various artists.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: dancing, punchy, groovy, alive I wanna make the soundtrack of people's lives
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Deamau5 probably because I like his approach to sound research. But there are so many other fabulous artists who each in their own way are making music evolve into the music of tomorrow.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Spend time choosing the "right sound", the right "drum kit", the right "groove". produce as if the mix did not exist.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: House, tech-house, edm, most of the time
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I prefer to let my clients answer this question :)
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The life ;) but in fact, the precision, the punch, the tonal balance and my ear.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Above all, the first listening is for me the most important. It is at this stage that I note the ideas and obvious improvements to be made to the production. Once this step is done I prepare my session, make a first mix and start to manage the levels, then the frequency zones, the dynamic control and the stereo field. This is only a small part of my work but the goal always remains the same: to offer the best balance and the best dynamics to the track so that it finally comes to life.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: On my main studio the architecture is based on a macbook pro i9 32Gb / ram with a lot of storage, an apollo rack quad sound card with a satellite quad for more flexibility. The main monitors are focal trio 11 be as well as a pair of yamaha msp5 and a pair of genelec 8020. For the analog part a SSL sigma, a compressor urei 1176 and some DIY modules provide the analog sound. The design and the acoustic treatment of the control room are studied to offer a linear response when listening.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: For exemple, HUGEL, Hugo Cantarra, Amine EDGE, TCTS, BYOR,......... the list is too long :)
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most often my role is to bring a new approach to all the elements of the production. frequency and spatial balance between the different parts of the track so that it tells its story and captivates the listener
