Interview with David Aionni

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I have released on Spotify tracks which I have written and produced on my own, that's my biggest accomplishment so far.

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

  4. A: Aside from mixing and mastering on Soundbetter I release music on Spotify with my solo project.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I have worked with Refugee and Brandon Chase just to name a few, they are super talented.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital can sound really good these days, it's a lot easier to use and more convenient.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: That I will do my best to meet their expectations.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: My job isn't the same every day. I hate routine.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: They ask if we can negotiate price for multiple songs. I say "Yes".

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

  16. A: To have a great sounding track you need great recordings and production, mixing and mastering won't fix a poorly produced song.

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

  18. A: I ask for audio references or very good descriptions of the sound they are looking after.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Just be as clear and specific as possible about what they want, good communication saves time and money.

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

  22. A: A laptop and a pair of headphones would do it for me!

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

  24. 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.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I would describe my sound as polished and emotive.

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

  28. 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.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Don't follow rules.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: Pop and Electronic Dance Music.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: EQ'ing tracks has become second nature after so many years doing it!

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

  36. A: I try to bring excitement and capture listener's attention.

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

  38. 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.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. 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!

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. 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.

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

  44. A: Mixing, tuning vocals and mastering.
