Interview with David Aionni
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I have released on Spotify tracks which I have written and produced on my own, that's my biggest accomplishment so far.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Aside from mixing and mastering on Soundbetter I release music on Spotify with my solo project.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I have worked with Refugee and Brandon Chase just to name a few, they are super talented.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital can sound really good these days, it's a lot easier to use and more convenient.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will do my best to meet their expectations.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: My job isn't the same every day. I hate routine.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They ask if we can negotiate price for multiple songs. I say "Yes".
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: To have a great sounding track you need great recordings and production, mixing and mastering won't fix a poorly produced song.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask for audio references or very good descriptions of the sound they are looking after.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Just be as clear and specific as possible about what they want, good communication saves time and money.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A laptop and a pair of headphones would do it for me!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I studied Sound Engineering many years ago, recently I have been adventuring as a Producer but mixing and mastering mainstream music is what I've been doing for the most part, about 7 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my sound as polished and emotive.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Again this is a tricky question since I can't come up with a single name. I love working with artists who are passionate about what they do.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't follow rules.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop and Electronic Dance Music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: EQ'ing tracks has become second nature after so many years doing it!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to bring excitement and capture listener's attention.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If I'm mixing I listen to each track and look for which frequencies need to be attenuated first, once each track is in the mix I may attenuate certain frequencies even further to avoid tracks clashing with each other.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I guess unlike most mixing engineers I'm not a big fan of hardware and expensive equipment, I have a minimalistic approach when it comes to what tools I use to get the job done so my home studio is essentially a 27" inch iMac and an Apogee Audio Interface. I do use a lot of plugins though!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: It would a very long list if I mention each professional who has inspired me but in general I would say I get inspired by people who believe in themselves and never give up on their dreams.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, tuning vocals and mastering.
