Interview with Gustavo Adán Lemus Salazar
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I can make a bad recording sound as a super pro production. If something was done wrong from the very start, then it'll never sound great. Everything has to be perfectly done from the start to the end to get an awesome result.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask about their style, what kind of music they do, what instruments they use, also ask for references of what they want to sound like.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Always be in touch and be patient. I always try to keep you updated along all the process to give you the chance of change things and to give you security.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I'd take my computer, some headphones, a MIDI controller, one mic and my audiointerface; just to keep working.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started doing my own music on 2017 and uploading it to YouTube, since then I have been producing my own song right from the start. On 2019 I started to study Technology and Musical Production on the Tecnológico de Monterrey, till the date. This year (2021) I competed and won the 2nd place on the AES México Convention 2021 Mixing Contest, released my first studio album under my artist name 'G Remusu' and also worked as mixing engineer and mastering assistant on the remix of the song 'Quédate Aquí' by Luz Savana.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For mixing I start by listening the references, then listening to the project and start with a level mix without making any panning. After that I start panning and doing another volume balance of the elements. Then I follow with EQ to clean all the tracks, use compression on some elements that need it, then EQ once again to rise some frequencies to get an more interesting sound. While doing all this things I'm checking the mix in mono and stereo. After that I put delays and reverbs to give depth to the mix. Finally I do some other processes as add another effects, automations and the final balance to go to the mastering process.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm very proud of the synthwave remix of 'Quédate Aquí', by Luz Savana. He liked the song a lot and that made me very proud and happy of the work I did. I'm also proud of my first studio album in which I did everything, it could not sound as good as I wanted but in the time I made it I haven't the same experience I have today.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on some personal projects, producing my own music and producing stuff for my sister who is a songwriter, and I'm looking for working for other people 'cause I'm excited and want to get much more experience.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new at this plataform so I don't meet a lot of people, but I'd recomend Fernanda Macías who is a Tiktoker and musical producer from the same institution that I study in.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I like both, analog always gives an unique sound and color to everything but the gear is kind of expensive, while digital you can do and undo the times you want and have everything inside your computer which is more practical.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will deliver a mix you like and I'll always try to exeed your expectations. I'll be attentive to you and your project, and will give all my dedication and efforts to give the best I can.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The part I like most about mixing and, in general doing music, is see all the process for which the songs has come. See how an initial idea develop and grows gives me a lot of satisfaction and makes me happy. I really love these things.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is very rocky. I've always liked rock music and that's the music with I grew up and till the date still being one of my favorite genders and is the one that I'm most familiar with. I like to have a good balance between all the elements of the song don't matter what gender it is, balance is everything, of course some things will change to one and another.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They commonly ask about my speciality which is mix the instrumental part, but also can mix the vocals so it's not a problem to mix the whole song. When I finished a version of the mix, they ask for me to do little changes as add more low end or brightness, of course I'll do if it's necessary and don't mess the rest of the elements.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Alan Moulder, because I love his work. Many of my favorite songs of my most favorite bands such as Queens Of The Stone Age and The Killers were mixed by him.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Listen a lot of music of all types, find out sounds and effects you like and try to replicate it. And practice a lot.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on Alternative Rock, Electronic and Pop. But I like to always try different things and learn how to do it the best way.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is perseverance, if something does not work I'll try to make it work, and can do things over and over again util you like the final result and I always like to try new things, so I'll be happy working in different and new things.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Beside making the song sound great, I bring originality, creativity and maybe a new vision of all the project.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I had a small home studio in which I made the acoustic treatment when I was on college, helped by one of my teachers.
