Interview with Chris Wilmot

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

  2. A: Recording, mixing and producing my friends podcast. Working on music/learning more about it. Finishing school soon.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Make your art any way you can. But if price wasn't a factor, analog.

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

  6. A: Can't fix everything.

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

  8. A: What kind of feeling are they going for? Are there any artists or eras they were influenced by.

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: 4 track recorder, a guitar, mpc sampler, a decent mic, a shitty mic (or some sort of solar generator?)

  11. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  12. A: I've been taking classes in audio production and studio recording since high school and throughout college for the past 5 years. During this time I have experimented with my own recordings and projects and have gained a lot of experience in garageband, protools, and primarily logic pro.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: I try to avoid overworking a song and layering too many effects. I prefer natural sounding mixes even with electronic or digital music.

  15. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  16. A: Rick Ruben seems chill.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: I am comfortable with both natural and stylized approaches to production and mixing.

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

  20. A: Experience and an attention to detail.

  21. Q: What's your typical work process?

  22. A: I usually start with cleaning up the sound as much as possible so I can start from an uncolored starting point. Then I mix the levels first, figuring out where they fit on the pan and that everything has its own space in the mix. Then I work on reverb, usually to fuse the sound together. Then I go on to eq and compression. I'll probably end up going back and tweaking each of these as go from step to step and I would add automation after getting the basic mix down.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: Studio Monitors, Mackie Interface, guitar, bass, microphones, 49-key midi controller, effects.

  25. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  26. A: Mixing, editing, recording.
