Interview with KIKO FERRARA
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analogue all life, working in several of the most important studios in Italy thanks to my university, I was able to use top-of-the-range equipment feeling the real difference between analogue and digital, there is no comparison!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love to deal with different artists and carry out their projects, it's almost like getting in tune with them.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice is to trust the professionals of this sector and obviously look for someone who falls within the budget. Although in life I have learned that for a good job you have to pay more, obviously with a competent person.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would bring the Moog Subsequent 37, the Roland JP-8000, the Roland TB-03 with the MXR distortion pedal and the KORG M3R.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started producing music at the age of 17, 2 years later I enrolled in a three-year degree course at the Jam Academy in Lucca, Italy. Here I learned many things by perfecting my techniques and discovering new ones, I have dealt with great producers and sound engineers who have taught me many things. now i am 22 years old and i have been doing this job for 5 years.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with anyone, no matter who they are.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Music production is a wonderful job because it allows you to transmit and communicate all your emotions through music, I think the suggestion I want to give is to study at least a basis of harmony and history of music. Before producing any genre you need to know its history to understand its structure, tempos, the most commonly used types of chords and more.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on electronic music (Trance - Techno - EDM in general), but I have worked several times (even for some exams) on different genres, such as Pop, Rock, Metal, Dance, Synthwave, etc.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The passion for this job.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A clean and professional sound, suitable for the genre to be treated, great monocompatibility.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It depends on the project I'm working on.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup consists of two pairs of monitors (Yamaha HS5 - M-Audio BX5), a Soundcraft Signature 12 MTK mixer (Analogue), a Moog Subsequent 37, Roland JP-8000, Roland TB-03, Roland JU- 06A, Korg M3R, MXR Distortion, Guitars (electric-acoustic), a bass, a Boss ME-80 pedalboard and more.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I think I'm very inspired by everyone in general and not by anyone in particular.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The work I usually do is Mix and Master, but being a producer I also love making ghost productions.
