Fantastic Melodies, and Song Ideas
Hi, I am a small producer based out of New England, working on developing a style and professional expertise. I have been working with music for around 8 years now and have been producing electronic music for around a year now. I play mainly keyboard, however I have a deep understanding of the mechanics and qualities of other instruments. I use a DAW called LMMS, and really enjoy working and growing with it as it develops. I mainly work with samples, and digital synths, and I push to use the highest quality plugins available for a given budget. I understand the fundamental principals of many common effects like compression, and EQ's and seek to innovate and grow with every track I make. I can compose for many different genres, and can write themes, melodies, and some select accompaniments.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Dark Rover
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: All of the track I have made (by myself), I've made by myself. So I guess I've done my best on each step. As with many other artists, I am probably most excited about my newest project.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on a number of personal tracks right now, and working with a friend on a video.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I personally think digital give you a greater degree of freedom, however I like the tone of analog more :p
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will do my best to work with you, not against you.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love being creative and meeting new people with a similar interests.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It is all loops and samples. For me and many good producers writing music is much more than working with presets and factory loops.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What do you need, and is there any specific references you would like to share? I also like to ask why type of mood, genre, and topic you want.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would bring a computer, keyboard, a solar charger, my headphones, and some HUGE batteries.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I am looking for creative artists who are on a similar journey of growth and development. I think sticking to what is "safe" leads to burnout, and laziness.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: When picking/making sounds make sure each sound has a purpose and sits well in the mix. If it is excessive try to EQ it, pick something else, or remove it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually make EDM, house, DnB and some cinematic stuff.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My melodies are strong and catchy and they sit well in a track. I also try to add a variety of melodic and rhythmic elements to make a track unique.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start with a drop or verse melody, and build up the rest of the track around it. I may also pick sound I want to use or incorporate.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It is quite minimal. I have a pair of PXC 550's I use for most of my sound work, and I monitor my audio levels with SPAN.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by artists like Approaching Nirvana, and TheFatRat, however I try to create my own style of melodic focused music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly write melodies, and do arranging
