Interview with Nikolai Lins

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

  2. A: My first EP I have written, recored, mixed and mastered when I was 16. Back then, I had a deathcore band named Home Behind World Ahead.

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

  4. A: I make music and can work with great artists. I am thankful to be able to do what I love everyday.

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

  6. A: If they get full rights to the music and can submit it to labels. Absolutely, my music is produced for that purpose.

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

  8. A: The louder the better. That's absolutely not true!

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

  10. A: Listen to your heart. Have a specific reference sound in mind, and pick a musician that has the ability to realize your vision.

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

  12. A: I've been making music for 12 years now. I first started playing the guitar, then I picked up other instruments, and later I ended up producing my own full length albums. Back then, it was Heavy Metal. Throughout the years, I specialised in dance music and almost every electronic genre you name.

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Experimental. I really like individual and emotional sounding music.

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

  16. A: A small chill lofi collection for the wellknown Youtube livestream "Lofi Girl".

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

  18. A: There are a lot of them. Depends on the genre and the job you need to get done.

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

  20. A: Most of the time I do the full production of a track for my clients. A lot of my tracks were used for licensing in movies and advertising.

  21. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  22. A: Both. But mostly digital. We live in modern and digital times and the possibilities we have are almost endless. Some of the biggest hits today are produced completely in the box on a laptop.

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

  24. A: To give 110% and deliver a professional service that will bring something new and unique to the customers production.

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

  26. A: What do you want to express with this song? How should it make the listener feel?

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

  28. A: My Laptop with Cubase installed, headphones, an audio interface an my guitar.

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

  30. A: My dream collaboration would be with Son Lux. I think this band and the mastermind behind it Ryan Lott has influenced me the most.

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

  32. A: Always rely on your ears but keep in my mind a few common rules. Space and dimension is everything in modern music, so give your track a room to "live in".

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

  34. A: I love a more experimental approach and like to merge different genres.

  35. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  36. A: My creativity in sound design and willingness to experiment with audio.

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

  38. A: As I treat every clients production as it was my own, I tend to bring in my own personality and vision of the song the client provided. In my opinion, a new perspective on a musical piece adds a lot of additional value.

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

  40. A: Of course I use the comping technique when I am recording to get the best possible "take". Then I will edit my tracks to fit the style of the track, whether it should be perfectly in time and "on the grid" or to give it the desired sloppiness and swing.

  41. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  42. A: Most of the time I am playing on my Gibson Les Paul or my Ibanez (Ben Bruce signature edition). When I am recording I use my Peavey 6505+ and the classic Shure SM57. My audio interface is the Steinberg UR22 mkII. More frequently I am using the dry DI-signal of and industry standard amp simulations like Guitar Rig or Bias FX. The DAW I am using is the professional version of Cubase 11.

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

  44. A: I grew up being mostly inspired by metal guitarists like Slash, Kirk Hamett and Jason Richardson. By now I've become a huge fan of experimental and virtuosic playing artists like Rafiq Bathia.
