Interview with Presley Butler
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: This is purely subjective. The feeling is what the listener pursues. However, analog adds a warmth and presence that is truly one of a kind. On the same token, enough SSLs on a single bus will give you a close to analog sound! To each, it's own.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To my clients, I adhere to the concept of giving it my all. Integrity, communication, professionalism, and personality are keys to providing amazing projects.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: This is my passion. There's no like, only love. To go above and beyond is the goal.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: "You make bangers". Actually, I just help the tracks become sonically acceptable. As an engineer, personal flair is nice, but ultimately, I am an architect of frequencies. I don't make bangers, I bring them to life.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are [you] wanting to convey to the world? What sound does your heart want others' ears to hear?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Music is and forever will be a collaborative venture. Learning to accurately communicate one's thoughts clearly is a skill. This skill is the foundation of great success.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: LESS IS MORE. Especially for what constitutes a 'Hit' today. Create a space around the vocal. Produce or the vocal.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rap spanning many cultures, Dance, Reggaeton, Country, Pop, Traditional Pop, Indie, etc.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Vocal mixing
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Clarity and my all.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Fluidity is my main priority. Starting with the vocals, I work my way to whatever draws my attention and what holds the most energy in a given track.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I am blessed enough to have several spaces to work out of. The studio I currently work my SoundBetter mixes in consists of the Apollo Twin MKII DUO Thunderbolt Audio Interface, an Apollo x8, Yamaha HS-7's, along with Presonus Eris E5's. I command the ship from the Steven Slate Raven MTi Core workstation.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I enjoy mixes from Jaycen Joshua, production from Calvin Harris and Finneas O'Connell.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work is rap. That's the new rock n roll.
